1/48 Tamiya Bf 109 G-6 JG 77 (Reinert) In Progress....
Posted by lawdog114 on Thursday, June 14, 2018 3:57 AM

I'm diving right back into this subject again.  I guess I'm a 109 junkie.  This is the first of two Bf 109 Gustavs.  I'm starting with the Tamiya G-6.

This one will be in the JG 77 "White 1" markings of Ernst-Wilhelm Reinert from the MTO in 1943.  Reinert was a 174 kill ace.

Since I just built one of these, I'm hoping it goes quick.  The cockpit is fantastic out of the box.  I just added some Eduard PE.  I'm still out of RLM 66 so I used XF-24 Dark Gray.  It looks close enough to me. 

 

  

I still hate the IP decals.  I should have used Airscale.  Next time.  

Fuselage closed up without issue...

I have that kit in my stash. I'm also subscribed.

I wouldn't pass up a chance to have one of the best resources for building this kit anywhere!
