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

Eduard Bf-109 E-1

Recommended Posts

Ok, I started this topic on the original SPAR forum but, yeah.  Now that things seem to have settled down and we're still keeping the group build over here, I'll put my entry back up.  This is Eduard's 1/48 Bf-109 E-1 and I'll be doing Hannes Trautloft's rig.  Here are some pics to bring us up to speed.










Had a bit of a problem with the propeller shaft coming out of the engine.  It was sacrificed to the carpet monster.  I decided to turn a new part on my dremel.  It came out alright.  Luckily, it won't be seen.




Here's the part with a little brass rod reinforcement.  It will later be trimmed to fit.


Now, in the last week and a half it seems like every time I go out to the bench, I take one step forward and two steps back.  I've broken quite a few pieces off and replaced them, and it's just extremely frustrating.  I'll just have to keep at it.  I'll give another update soon.  After I manage to build up the courage to not break something on the kit.

Ok, with most of the construction completed, I've moved on to slinging some paint.  Luckily I just had a decent couple of hours painting, with no real steps back.  Seems like the Jinx Fairy took the last two days off.


I got the bottom sprayed with some RLM 65:




Then I shot the upper surfaces with the RLM 70/71 splinter scheme:













And that's how it sits currently.  I'll give it a day to cure, then hit with a clear coat and get ready for some decals. After that, we'll have a little bit of weathering and get close to being complete. Enjoy!
