Hi again Doug

I love this project! If ever there was a build that made a mockery of the quantity vs. quality adage, this is it! Proof - you can have both!

I honestly don't know how you do what you do, in the time you do it in! It's just not fair!

All the best

Rowan

monogram 109 needs a pilot to fill the cockpit as I did not do anything inside so I took the pilot out of the Tamiya 109

You are prolific son of a gun. Where do you find the time





I have a pretty stressful job and this is what I do to relax at least an hour or so a day and it just falls together if you keep plugging away at it.

Sorry to pitch in so late in the thread, but only just discovered it.

I have access to a real live flying Bf109 (along with a number of other flying warbirds) if you would be interested in any reference photos of exhaust stains, fluid leaks, etc. If there is anything in particular of which you would like close-ups let me know and I will endeavor to get them.




thanks Mark, what 109 is it that is there? would love to see any pictures you want to post, maybe you could do one of the walk arounds for the forums.

I will not go crazy with detail on this one as I plan on doing a bunch of newer and more detailed kits like Tamiya, Hasegawa, and Eduard E models. This will be a quick no frills build with new wheels from True Details and modern decals but other than that it will be stock. it is bringing back so many good memories as I build it.





OK I did add some detail to the back of the cockpit and a headrest and will use the Tamiya pilot to fill the hole so it won't look to empty.

first square tip 109 for this comparison and I wanted to start with the very first 109 I built when i was younger, My good buddy Rudy at Kings in Austin Texas found one for me and here it is.

Doug,
No disregard towards all previous builds (all very good) I really enjoy this flamboyant Romanian Gustav. Excellent airbrush work on the fuselage mottle.
That said, the eduard early gustav was cursed by the modeling community on account of dimensional errors and odd shapes like the UC legs stance, visible on your model photo. But still feel its a easy and fun trip to build.

Congratulations on your thread!
Never cease to amaze at the speed you and others here finish great

looking models, c'mon...

Cheers
Pedro

Thanks Pedro
I will be building the current G 6 from Eduard eventually so it will be good to compare it.

Doug
