Bf-109E-7 was created by IAN
Started on the 9th of December... So as you probably guessed, every year I try to do a 'clear the bench' build over Christmas, this year it was this one:























Not sure why folks seem to shy-away from the 1:32 Trumpy 109E kits almost all the completed ones that I have seen are from the Eduard and Dragon kits. Ahh well... I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this one. Perfect fit everywhere, lots of detail, excellent etch, decals and phenomenal clear parts. (not so excellent rubber tyres tho'). For a change I broke-out my enamels for the 74/75/76/04 colours, all of which I mixed using my preferred Mk.I eyeball method.  Highly recommend this to anyone contemplating a 1:32 build and perhaps a wee bit put-off by the excessive parts-count and cost of some of the 'uber kits' around just now - I got this off a well-known on-line auction site from a Chinese based seller for just £16.50 !!!!! (that's as good as giving it away) even down here to NZ the postage was just ten-quid.

So here t'is all done only addition is the kit specific Eduard Zoom set which includes the harness too;  And I have to admit that I'm very pleased with it. Please feel free to hurl any criticism, ask any questions or make any comment at all. Thanks for taking the time to look and Happy 2019 to all here.

That's bloody nice mate, you're chuffed by the outcome I can tell and who wouldn't be :)
Nice bright colours and fantastic mottling, it's not the make that scares me away it's the mottling....................

This was my Trumpy G2, and the first time I did free hand mottles, but I think I prefer yours to be honest.

DANG, that is a nice model!

I've got a few Trumpeter 109 on the shelves and likewise I think they're a good model. Seldom if ever have I read a negative comment about build or fit, and accuracy wise it looks like a 109 so ticks the accuracy box :lol: and yes rubber tyres is perhaps the only critiscism I would aim it's way, but Trumpeter are in good company with Tamiya doing much the same.

Thanks for taking the time and making the effort to post Ian, you've got a beautiful model and I've got a reminder to make one of mine sooner not later.

It's a great build.
The radio code and wasp motif are cool, making it stand out from the crowd.
Love it.

I started building models, then I was collecting more than I built. Now I'm more of an archivist.
