1/24 Airfix Bf-109 was created by Grant
I'm a glutton for punishment. After enjoying the 1/24 Hurricane, I decided to build the 109, which has a worse reputation. It has recently been reissued in a really attractive box with the original artwork. Inside, the molds are a bit shagged with lots of flash. The plastic is soft though so this is easily removed. I was going to build without modification, but the open wheel wells bugged me so I closed these up. It is impossible to fit the engine covers on with the engine in there without trimming it, and even after this is done the fit it poor and requires some styrene and filler. Here is where I'm at with most parts on and a lot of the filling and sanding done.







Also, after a bit of a break from modelling due to work pressures, it is nice to finally be getting some done.

You still have time to order a set of Barracuda wheels/tyres for this kit before you complete it. barracudacals.com/proddetail.php?prod=BR24435
Nice work so far.

On the bench:
