Here is my recently completed AMG Bf 109 B. The complete build thread can be found here:

http://s15.zetaboards.com/72nd_Aircraft ... 0408576/1/

After fighting the AMG Bf 109 A to a draw, I thought I wouldn't want to touch another one for quite some time. But the more I looked at the finished model the more I liked it. This time I didn't adhere to "out of the box" rules and added a few bits. However the AMG kit is so complete, not much was necessary. The cockpit only needed a little sprucing up with some stretched sprue, plastic card and some Eduard preprinted steel seat belts. I also added a Squadron Vac canopy, Barracudacast wheels and wire brake lines. Decals came from A Kagero monograph (Cartograph) and Print Scale. Paints, as always, are Gunze Sangyo aqueous. All in all, this is a very good kit, but not without fit problems.


























And here it is side by side with its older brother.

Absolute eye candy!!!

Your Messerschmitt builds are a large part of the reason I have decided to do a few, after 40+ years of little interest in the subject. These early 109s are additional inspiration... though I can only dream of attaining such beautiful finishes!
