1/48 Scale Bf 109G-14, JG53 Oblt. Erich Hartmann - WIP
Posted by Ole on Saturday, November 03, 2018 1:33 PM

My first WIP thread here... Hasegawa 1/48 Bf109G-14 kit which will be painted an overall white color to resemble the plane flown by Erich Hartmann. I decided to use a True Details cockpit over the kit supplied one. It's a wee bit more detailed as you can see below.

I started out with a black primer followed by Mr. Color RLM 66. Next added some highlights by adding a bit of white to the RLM 66. Light drybrushing followed by some shading/lowlights.

Still working on the cockpit details and weathering. Stay tuned for more...

Looking great Ole. I usually do the same with this kit. I look forward to your progress.

Cockpit is looking great.  I like the weathering, especially the seat belts.  Very convincing.

Cheers, Mark

Somehow, I got to this point really quick. Tamiya light grey primer, rescribed a few panel lines.

Due to the light paint scheme, I went with RLM75 for the preshading

Yellow painted and maked off. Some touch up priming to remove any yellow overpaint.

Diluted white upper areas, lightblue belly. I took a shortcut and didn't bother to paint the recular camo, followed by a whitewash.

 

Ready for decals and weathering next.
