This will be my first model this forum. A Bf 109 E1 of Eduard on the scale 1/32.

The model.

The sprues.

Decals, mask, PE and transparencies.

This is the scheme that I like but I have a model with the same scheme in 1/48 scale.

So, maybe go choose this.

This will be fun! I love these Eduard Kits! even if others don't!

 

A couple of tips that I found that eased a lot of the issues people seem to have are -

 

Add a strip of plastic on the upper and lower halfs of the fuse. This will aid the locating them in place as the pins are very tiny -

and add small strips on the nose on both sides to locate the upper cowling if you are not displaying the engine, as per my really bad art work!

Hope that helps!

Also, stealing Dave's photo, get rid of the seam as indicated as it is not there in the real thing - just some rivets.

And do a little surgery on the slats:

And you'll have an excellent model!

My love for the Emil will overcome the frowns and frustration that Eduard's rendition brings out in me ;)

 

The guys have you well covered here and I am sure it will turn out great - God even my two Eduard 109s look ok despite my fumbling attempts!

 

Cheers

Thank you all for your comments and for the errors of the model and solutions.

Initially I was not thinking about leaving the engine sight. Now go get the engine cover open. Avoid problems fitting and will follow all of your instructions.

Thank you
.

 

I painted the interior of the landing gear wells RLM 02 (Tamiya XF-22).

Very nice so far! I built this kit soon after it came out, and I seem to remember having a terrible time with the cowling (I built it "buttoned up" without the engine). Can't wait to see how this one turns out!

Thanks Chris S.

 

I glued the fuselage. Fit right (thanks Dave J) with the exception of the lower engine cover.

Air intake already repaired. I will then apply a primer to see if all is well.

 

After redo some rivets and panels lines.

I glued the wings and horizontal stabilizers.

Looking great! I'm working on the 1:48 E-1 - does it also have the mistake with the slats?

I suppose it is. I compared the size of the Eduard model with a model of Tamiya (109 E4) and Eduard reality slats are larger.
