Bf 109G-6, Oblt. Kurt Gabler, 8./JG 300 Juterbog – Waldlager Air Base, Germany, July 1944 - FINISHED
Posted by Ole on Wednesday, October 31, 2018 12:39 PM
This is my first post on this forum, so please go easy on me!
Just completed is this Eduard 1/48 scale Bf 109-G6. I picked the aircraft of Oblt. Kurt Gabler since it’s somewhat unique without the traditional German camo. This plane flew without camouflage to save on weight. This was necessary to try to keep up with the RAF Mosquito’s.
The plane was not a NMF in the traditional sense, rather a plane where the paint was sanded off at some point. References are hard to find, but I tried to depict it with faded markings due to the sanding. Most stencils were missing as well. The Red 8 and markings on the side as well as the rudder markings seem to have been repainted where the wing markings and swastika is faded.
The plane was finished using Eduards Profipak kit with PE details. I used primarily Gunze paints, various washes and pigments to achieve the finish. The base is just for photo purposes.
Thanks for looking!

I think 3rd time is a charm (hopefully):

A very nice build of a pilot specific aircraft. I love the history behind this well done bird.

Great job on this Eduard 109. Finish is unique indeed, good job with it! How did you do the squiggles on the rudder?

Yes , and Welcome Sign

Can’t go wrong with those Eduard kits, they offer very good quality. That looks fantastic and looks quite different than the usual camo work seen. Excellent idea to set it on that base that adds even more eye candy. Beer

Thanks all for the kind comments.

Greg, the squigglies are decals that came with the kit. This particular kit came with the option of five different variants of the G-6. I got the kit for around $18 on eBay, so a really good deal.

Ahh...I was about to be jealous that you could dial in your airbrush that fine!  Again, beauty work.
