The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

1/48 Messerschmitt Bf 109F-1 SC+GW, Werner Molders


Recommended Posts

Well, to cut a shortish story even shorter, this build involves Zvezda's beautiful Bf109F-2 built as a very early Bf109F-1 as flown by Werner Molders.  Nice profile by Class Sundin below.

Progress at this stage needed to be around the cockpit, to get fuselage closed up.  Unfortunately I faffed between RLM 02 and RLM 66 for the interior colour and finally decided to strip the paint back and put in a nice fresh coat of the correct RLM 02 (as this is an early machine).

 

Vallejo acrylic paint is pretty tough!  Whilst Tesco value all purpose cleaner (widely acknowledged as a pretty good value paint stripper) cut through 20 year old Humbrol enamels, it made almost no impression on the Vallejo of just a few days!!!

 

In the end I used window cleaner (windex type stuff) which has cut through enough of it.  So I'm back ready to proceed.
