--------------------

 

This is Revellís Bf 109 G-4 converted to a G-2. The making of the model has already been described by others, so I just describe the changes to the model. I used the wheels early set wheels from True details and the tailwheel came from a old Bf 109 E (Hasegawa) kit. The tailwheel-bay was opened up with a scalpel.  The Cockpit set came from Aires and this was really marvelous but I used a seat belt set from MDC. I also used a new propellor from MDC.  The underwing cannons where replaced with brass tubes and the machineguns where drilled out.  The hole for the wire-antenna was relocated.  There was also a springfeather with a cable attached to the cockpit which I made from brass wire and some stretched sprue.

After assembly of the Aircraft I Painted my model in the original paint scheme of RLM 74/75/76. I used Myself mixed Tamiya paint for this. After this hade dried I sealed this in with Future Floor polish. After a couple of days I sprayed the top coat with Revellís White. After this hade dried for a couple of hours I made the scratches with a toothpic dipped in turpentine and some bigger weathering with a cotton swab. After A drying time of a couple of days I Sprayed the whole aircraft again with Future. When this hade dried for a day I put the decals on which where from Eaglecal sheet nr. 3252, Major Hans ďAssi ďHahn part 3. After A good night sleep, I sealed it all in with a mix of Future and Tamiya flat paint. Last but not least there was after finishing the model some weathering with pastels.

I enjoyed making this model.  Now itís time to put the Focke-Wulf 190 D-9 from Revell together.
