This is the
personal plane of Adolf Galland during the Battle Of Britain. It is the
Tamiya 1/48 Bf-109E-4/7 Trop kit married with the decal options in
Hasegawa's Bf109E Galland "Special". I also added an Ultracast
Bf-109B-E seat which comes with the harness moulded on (a godsend if,
like me, you don't want to be messing about with foil & buckles).
tried to fit the Moskit exhausts as well, but they wouldn't go (possibly
only work on Hasegawa). In the end I drilled out the kit parts and used

Paint mixes are
my own using Tamiya paints (I keep a supply of RLM colours ready mixed).
are based on the Tamiya suggested paint mixes, but significantly lightened
to allow for pre-shading. I've used the bare minimum of weathering as I
haven't summoned up the courage to do it properly.
