Love this Themed Display idea.

So I started the a new one, regarding the 109, one of may favorite planes.

And here are my contributions:

After reentering the hobby in 2002, this was my second 109 I did.
It is ICM's Bf 109 E-7 done in about 2005



I think the next one was the Fine Molds Bf 109 G-4 /R6



then came a Bf 109 G-10 Erla Built and a Bf 109 G-6/AS

For the G-10 Erla built, I used the Revell G-10 and the Loon conversion fuselage.


The G-6/AS is a kitbash made from Revells G-10 and Academys G-6 and some reworking regarding the fuselage, Canopy and Spinner.



The latest one I did is again a Fine Molds. This time a Bf 109 F-4 (Marseille)



Some of the pictures are hosted on german boards, so the swastikas had to be edited.

Wonderful builds Wolf, the last two especially. The weathering and paintwork is perfect. Congratulations.

I wish I could participate to this thread - and the one on Ju 88's too, but haven't built a 109 in over thirty years, and never a Ju 88. So I'll just watch and enjoy.

It´s a really good idea, Wolf. I love your "white 4", it´s for me the maximum in our scale.

Here are my Bf 109G-14, 15./JG 5, Norway 1945, build from the Fine Molds Kit with a little bit extras

Not the 1st time I got this one wrong. :wacko: It's the Tamiya kit. Subconsciously, I guess I'm wishing for Fine Molds to release the E version. :D

Great stuff guys...I'll post mine and a bunch of Bf 109E pics I took at Chino today. There's a Bf 109E on display there that was recently brought up from a lake bottom. Its got at least three paint schemes showing through. Originally built as an E-1 it was eventually brought up to E-7 standards. It fought in France, the Battle of Britain, Africa and finally on the Eastern Front where its pilot forced landed it on a frozen lake...it's a truly remarkable aircraft. I got a lot of pics of it. The museum people tell me it will undergo a 5 year restoration to return it to flying condition. Pitty...I think its far more interesting the way it is.

I'll be home later in the week...pics then.

Joe, I am with you. I like to see those planes flying, but sometimes it es better to conserve such a plane as it is.
Sometimes a remarkable history is more worth than the obejct itself.

Looking forward for your pictures.

Ok, a theme I can join in -

Here are some details of my 109E, I built a couple of years ago. It was originally posted on Britmodeller and LEMB where I got a lot of help on the research.







The model was based on the 1/72 Tamiya kit but I replaced the fuselage with one from the ICM kit which is reputed to be a bit longer than the Tamiya and the correct scale length.

The information below is a summary of how the plane has been finished and some details of the original subject. The colour scheme is as based on information from various references. The plane is a Bf109E-3 of 3./JG 3 shot down over England during the Battle of Britain. The pilot was UOffz Heinz Grabow. The plane was subsequently taken to Australia for War Bonds promotion.

The fuselage is painted in RLM 65 Hellblau undersides. Based on first hand observations of the aircraft in Australia, the upper colours are applied as ‘Mixed Greys’ – hand mixed colours which were used to tone down aircraft during the Battle of Britain. Ref 1 & Ref 4.
The upper splinter (Type 5 – Ref 1) camouflage is overspraved with mottling other than the tailplanes . Ref 1.
Fuselage Mottles are in Mixed RLM02 Grey and RLM71 Dunkelgrun Ref 1
The white rudder and wing tips are washable distemper and have worn off in the photos in Australia. They are noted in the original crash report as are details about the colour of the ‘Tatzelwurm’ symbol and propeller spinner. Ref 5.

Of course any mistakes in marking/colour interpretation are mine.

OK, I've gotten a few photos organized, so here goes.

First an outlier, the Heller Bf 108. Quite a bit done here, including some cockpit updates, Falcon vac canopy, replacement landing gear and wheels, and general reshaping of just about everything. Also completely rescribed. The 108 is an elegant aircraft and I definitely would do another. But isn't it time Special Hobby stepped up to the plate?



The Tamiya 109 E-7. Still the best E variant, IMHO, for buildability and accuracy. This one is out of the box.



The Airfix 109 E-4, an oh-so-close effort by Airfix. I did have fun with it and the separate flaps are a real bonus.



Next is another Tamiya 109, this time an E-3 (but with later square canopy). A fair amount of additional work on this one, including an Aires cockpit.



This is a rather major rework of the Tamiya kit to produce the carrier contender, Bf 109 T-1. Lengthening the wings required the services of three kits, probably because I decided to lower the flaps. Where were you a year ago, Airfix?






Fine Molds makes its first appearance with the G-6, this time out of the box. An absolutely gorgeous kit.



Another Fine Molds 109, this time a G-10. Very additions this time, but I did drop the flaps, which improves the appearance of any 109.



This 109 G-10 was my first real effort in detailing a 1/72 109 model in some time. Again the Fine Molds kit with Aires interior, dropped flaps and slats, repositioned elevators, and short rudder taken from a FM G-6 kit.





The MPM Bf 109 H Hohenjaeger is next, but the only thing remaining from the MPM kit is the basic wing. The rest is Hasegawa and my own corrected resin nose.



I have a particular soft spot for post war 109s; the first here is a Heller conversion to produce the HA 1109 K1L. The kit began with a Revell Spitfire Mk I nose (reshaped beyond recognition), a Heller 109 G-6 central fuselage and wings, and Heller 109 E rear fuselage. Lots of scratchbuilt doodads as well. This may well be the most elegant 109 version of all. Too bad it was one of the worst performers. A Model has one in their recent line up, and thanks to the frequent Squadron Shop sales, I have accumulated a few. Being short run, a better result may come from cross kitting with a Fine Molds G-4.



The first of my Merlin engined Hispanos is again a Heller conversion, taking virtually the same course as the HA-1109 shown above. Each of the underwing rocket rails contains 19 parts. (I wonder if I could do that again today - the model was built over 20 years ago). Please forgive the crappy photo, I'll take more when I photograph other 109s for part two of this diatribe.



Finally, one of the most recent additions, and most extensive conversions, another HA 1112 M1L, this time starting with the Fine Molds G-6 kit. This, and most of the other models in this post, are chronicled on this site in the "in progress" section. Hope you've enjoyed it.

I thought I'd post these two to the site again, since it has been some time, and we now have this thread. The Rumanian ARR 109E-3 was flown by Slt. Rez. Av. Ioan Dicezare. After completing it, I found that he may have actually flown aircraft number 9 instead of 27. This is the Parc Models kit:

Sadly, today (11/13), I found out that retired Lt. Gen. Dicezare passed away on August 10th, 2012, in Budapest, aged 95. One of the last of the Rumanian Vanatori.



The Swiss 109 was built some time ago, and I forget everything about its service career. I just thought it looked cool on the decal sideviews! Hase 109E-3 kit:



I hope you enjoy these--

I'll play. This is a wildly revamped Hasegawa kit with tons of new resin corrections (many crafted by a certain memBarryber of this board). Italian G-6 tall-tail. Note that the acetate canopy spread open/out of shape after it was glued in place. What is a model without a fatal flaw, eh?

It rather looks like Romanian roundel from 1950-1984.

Yes. You are quite correct. It is Romanian.

Thank you for the correction.
Life is too short for poor kits.

Here is a mixed setup of very old and converted Revell G10, Heller F, Airfix G6 and Amodels Z kits, all recently built, rebuilt and modified to represent Bf109G4/R6 machines of JG27 when on Reichdefence at Leeuwarden Nightfighterbase in summer of 1943. Part of a larger diorama. In total there are 5 and-a half Gustavs, since the bashing of the Z left me minus one set of wings, so that one went in the Werfthalle :-)

The CV Traction is a composite of 3 kits plastic and metal, all 1/72- 1/87- and HO- ish', whom by itself did not look right for scale, but bashed into something more convincing fpr the eye.

Fueltruck is from the combined truck and schwimmwagen set by Tamiya, Tractor is a resin kit, and figures are Airfix, some tools and equipment are from Preiser, gascylinders are scratched, hangar crane is sctratched from plastic coffee stirrers, as is the hangar, made out of balsa, and again coffee stirrers (wood this time) and matchsticks for the doors and facades..

Models are all brushpainted, including the mottling, sorry I'm 'Old School'


The other side of the diorama is Me110 Nightfighters..

Hope i got the pic sizes right this first time..

thx for having me here, regards and enjoy!

Bert

This set I called "The Aerodrome under new Management"
A Matchbox Emil, and a Bloch from Heller. well over 30 yrs old, rebuilt a few years ago..

Emil decals were from a dedicated Emil sheet, cant remember which...

Background pic was shot on the Route du Soleil highway from the car last summer, and printed in A3 paper :-)



enjoy!

For Rolf, who had a good idea, I have copied Libor's post here.


Hi folks,

for the upcoming Valiant Wings book I built the following kits as a selection of early Bf 109 models:

Bf 109V1 MPM


Bf 109A, cross kitting Tamiya/AML (ex-Avis)


Bf 109E-1, Tamiya conversion


Bf 109E-7Trop, Airfix


Cheers
Libor

All fantastic builds. Would be nice to know, how the riveting was done.

I finished an Airfix E-4 just yesterday:

Criticism Is welcome
