EVERYTHING UKRAINE GROUP BUILD IS NOW UNDERWAY.

Dragon Messerschmitt Me-110D 1./Ergänzungs-Zerstörergruppe Værløse 1/48


Recommended Posts

Hello my Friends,

     Here is my first completion for the year.  It's also the most effort I've ever put into a 1/48 scale build.  But it won't be the last as I have some other great 1/48 scale kits by Dragon and ICM. 

1./Ergänzungs-Zerstörergruppe Værløse was a temporary unit, stationed in Denmark formed from members of ZG 76 and new fliers that would eventually become part of NJG 3.  Although there are only a few images of the unit that I have seen, I am guessing that there were a lot of training flights and flights escorting coastal convoys in the North and Baltic seas. 

Anyway...  onto the pics!  I hope you like it.

I like the Messerschmitt a lot Gaz. The slightly faded and well blended paintjob is outstanding. What amazes me most though, is that you kept the same painting style with the figures, as they are so well integrated. Sometimes figures do not fit the painting style of a plane, but not with yours. The whole setting is like looking onto a slightly aged color photo. 

Cheers Rob

Rob,

     Thank you very much!  Very kind words, and something I never really thought of during the build.  So, hopefully it's something that comes naturally, and not a one-off.  Perhaps it's even using the same matte clear...  I dunno.  But I truly appreciate you saying it.

Brilliant work. Both the Me110 and it’s did look fantastic. Beautiful paint work on the figures and added all together - simply outstanding work and presentation.

Keep ‘em comin

Everything looks natural, blending together like in real life. Positioning and overall composition of your diorama simply flows with the event. Nicely done Gary

Cheers

Thank you Martin.  I got lucky with the figures...  they were the best of the 13 I have.  The remainder are either ground crew or more stereotypical types.
