Willy's run-around 1/48
Posted by AdeB on Friday, September 08, 2017 9:21 AM

Very nice and easy build of Eduard's Taifun in 1/48th. I added some Techmod decals to depict Willy Messerschmitt's personal aircraft.

Finish is Mr Color Light Aircraft Grey with some oil weathering.

I like the weathering. It's a cool plane.  It's like a tandem cockpit 109.  I guess the 109 was influenced by the Taufin.  It'd be perfect for taking dates to the alps for a picknic.

A very nice build and finish, thanks for the post and photos. Is that the same airplane that was in the "Great Escape," that James Garner flew to escape in?

Beautiful job!

I really like this plane...for a plain ole plane, it's a beauty!

Did you have issues with the canopy fit? (my example was a little rough)

Well done. I like this plane also and I really want to build it. It's just a nice looking AC.

It was 'ok' - needed a bit of work andit's probably still not perfect tbh.

You...are correct, sir!  Yes!
