1:32 scale Bf 109 G-6/R-6 (Revell's kit with Eduard's underwing cannon pods)
Posted by marcopreto on Sunday, March 24, 2024 11:09 AM

Usually I fiddle around with 1:144 scale aircraft and aircraft wise, reserve 1:72 and 1:48  scales for specific projects, but after many years of admiring 1:32 scale aircraft models, I bought Revell's Bf109G-6 at a very reasonable price and decided to give it a try! The only aftermarket I've used is Eduard's MG151 underwing cannon pods, in order to depict the aircraft I chose to model.
So far, it has been a nice experience. It is now close to its completion, but I still need to add an antenna and further weather the aircraft belly.

Here's its present state:

 

I hope you like it and I should share some photos of the completed model soon!

Cheers

EDIT: Oops! My goof thought Eugene was the initial poster.
PS - they both look great - I wondered what prompted the do over
PSS Eugene - I'm a big fan of Grill top photography too Smile

That is one mean looking fighter. I see you made quite the course correction, I like it. Very brave move on the nose cone spiral. I try to avoid that type of detail, so hard to pull off but you did it. How many tries did it take to nail it? Smile

Hi macropreto, beautiful job on an all-time classic! I love the camo, and the exhaust and gunsmoke stains. And the panel line post shading is spot on. I'm a huge fan of weathering, so I'm looking forward to seeing how you do the rest.

Hi Eugene, amazing job. I am in awe of your airbrushing skills! You even made camo spots on the canopy frames.  My hat is off to you sir.

Hi macropreto, beautiful job on an all-time classic!

As fas as I'm aware, the kit I'm using is not the classic Revell's Gustav! I think it is a new mold, dating from 2013. I don't know how it compares with the classic one (which dates from 1969, if I remeber correcty).

Cheers

Looks great, Marco!  I've been wanting to pick one up to go along with the 1/32 P-51.
