1/72 Tamiya Bf-109E

by David Upp



This little Tamiya kit is a jewell...great fit, excellent detail.  I'm sticking to 1/72 now, because my wife won't allow me to display too many models around the house (4 max), and my office has limited shelf space.  I'm sure some of you addicts can relate...HA!  I used an Eduard photo-etch set for cockpit details, a very nice set.

The cargo truck is an Opel-Blitz by Heller (says "Airfix" underneath), great detail, but took some work to get the body parts to fit decently.  The Kubelwagen is by Academy, also has very good detail and excellent parts fit.  The tarmac is a sheet from Verlinden...nice oil stains, etc.

While y'all are reading this, I'm off to Home Depot to pick up some shelves.

Thanks again, Steve...your site is the all-time best!
