This is my first 1/32 scale kit in a very long time. Since everyone was (and is) doing all of the well known 109s, I settled on the JG27 aircraft of Gruppenkommandeur Ernst Duilberg, stationed in Argos, Greece, in October of 1943. The model is basically straight out of the box. I scrounged the Gruppe markings from the Hasegawa Fw-109D-9 and the 109G kit decals. The JG27 emblem came from the grossly oversized 1/48 Fujimi Bf-109G set.

The model was painted with Gunze RLM 02, 74, 75, and 76, and I used Tamiya Flat White, and Flat Black for the tail and spinner. The prop blades are Testor's Acryl RLM 70, which seems too light in my opinion. The model was washed with a mixture of india ink and Tamiya thinner, which was applied over a coat of Future. Decals were applied, then some light pastel work, and the model was sprayed with a Future and Tamiya Flat base mixture. The total build time was about 35 hours.
