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

Eduard 1/32 Bf-109E re-start


Recommended Posts

My intentions are to build this one using some "home grown" decals using my computer and printer. I was able to find the needed markings, in various scales, in my decal stash and was able to re-size and print them out via my computer and photo editor apps. I think they are all the right size, etc now so I can get started on the build. This is the a/c I plan to model.

Too many high cuss factor problems when trying to get the fuselage halves together. When it FINALLY snapped into place the bottom of the instrument panel fell off. I won't go into a lot of detail but suffice it to say one problem led to another and another, etc. I don't need the aggravation and frustration so I decided to SOD it and move on to something else. Unknown at this time.

Nice choice for your next build. I've had my eye on the Eduard kit for some time and your build just might help me finally decide. 

Alway amazed at how you can print out your own decals. I've tried once and failed miserably.

I have my fingers crossed this build will turn out well but we will see. 🙂

Back to this one now. I was able to get the fuselage halves and cowling on without too much cussing! Now maybe I can get with the rest of the program with this one. 🙂

I'm looking forward to the paint scheme!

That's a neat looking paint scheme. It's what decided me on doing this particular a/c. Should be a eye catcher! 😃

Fingers crossed the balance of the build will be a non-cuss factor, from here on in.🤞

Will be following all the way.

My fingers are crossed too Peter. So far it looks like it'll go well. 🙂

Progress in painting. Next I'll get started on the fuselage camo which uses some different RLM colors from the wings 74/75.
