I never really had a thing for Japanese aircraft till my trip to Tokyo in 2009.... I saw a built up 1/32 Tojo, and loved the forward swept wings on this interceptor... So I had to get one! well two! I used the small bonus photo etch fret that was supplied in Japan's Scale Aviation magazine that is published November 2009 issue on both of them. I also added a small amount scratch detail in the ways of control cables in the cockpit, brake lines on the landing gears, wiring the ignition on the engine and drilling out the tail wheel fork. Interior's was painted using a custom mix of Tamiya acrylics and the bare metal finish was done using Mr Color Super Metallic range. All the unit markings and Hinomaru's are painted on with Tamiya acrylics by using a set of Warpigs Circle Paint Masks, no decals were used (except for the B-29 kill markers). Chipping on the airframe was with a pin and on the propeller was done using a silver pencil. First Scheme is WO Makota Ogawa, of 3rd Squadron, 70th Flight Regiment, Kashiwa Air Field, 1945. Second scheme is 2nd Chutai, 47th Hiko Sentai, Narimasu Airfield
My entrie for the build is Hasegawa Bf109 F-4 Trop kit.. Will be of Hans Joachim Marseille F-4Trop W.Nr. 10137... I will throw some Eduard Belts at it and Aires Pit at it... So lets get it started!! Cockpit details grinded off with a Demel Test fitting the Aires pit... its a few mm's to short... Kit part to show the difference... Plan of attach it to cut of the mounting points and push the Aires pit into place and CA it! Panel Line on the wings are filled.. so are the hatches etc... These damn kidney inserts again! I hate these and the damn seam on the cowl! This time I have sanded the back of the insert down and used Mr Surfacer to fill in the gaps... I am sure that I will have more problems with them later!
This photo popped up on another modelling forum beginning of 2012... Once I saw it, I had to do this scheme! Bf 109 G-2, WNr 10436 Oberfeldwebel Wilhelm Schilling, 9./JG 52, Siverskaya, Soviet Union, September 1942. There is no Decal Sheet available for this scheme, so it will be done via a mixture of custom made paint masks and decals... I will be using the Promodeller G-4 Trop kit and back dating it to a G-2 I started this again in beginning of 2012 while my family was overseas for 4 weeks... but for some reason it got stuck on the shelve for some reason... Since its so close to being done, I need to resurrect it and finish it! Started off grinding off all the detail in the Cockpit to fit the Aires pit... Its for a Trumpeter kit, but all the mounting points seem to be the same as a G-6 pit for a Hasegawa kit Sprayed RLM 66 using Mr Color Lacquers All the items that need to be painted different colours received a base coat of white, this was done using Tamiya acrylics. All the components picked out using a fine brush Some Airscale Placards were added to make the pit "busier", Everything was sealed with a gloss clear and then given a oil wash. Once dry a coat of Alclad Kear Kote was sprayed on to tone everything down... A normal HB pencil was used to add scratches and wear in areas.
