  1. Greetings Guys

    The book is my reason for this build . Great read and super story. The African aircraft photo in the book is the guide for my build.

    This is the older Airfix BF 109F. Good Shape and fairly easy construction.

    I will have to say there have been some "consultations" with Mr Numerick regarding this build. I wish I could blame him for the mistakes along the way ,but those are mine alone. Barry has given me some great input on the 109F aircraft.

  2. Started this a few weeks ago and have been traveling to much

    A few progress notes

    Added a hinge (Stretched sprue on the front engine panel center line, highlighted some panels, added resin Interior (was dumb the kit interior was just fine.Stupid AMS)

    Enhanced the Trop filter with some mesh and pre-shaded the piano hinge on topAirfix109FTropFilter.jpg

     

    Did some corrections on the cooler scoop on the bottom, Painted the white parts,Nose,fuselage band,Wing tips, and painted Yellow lower panel.

    Time to post and allow drying.

  3. Couple of things I'll note:

    1. lots more modeling forums nowadays ,international like Hyperscale and ARC, Scale related like 72nd scale, topic related like USAF SIG, And the list goes on.

    2. Modelers themselves,like my club in Pittsburgh

    A. 1/3 are IPMS members

    B. 1/3 of those build regular

    C. 90% of those do very little posting and photos.

     

    Just some non-scientific breakdowns and my opinions on limited posting seen

     

    As for me. I post my stuff here, 1/72nd Modeller,ARC and Hyperscale . I average about a completion every 3 months. Not much to keep the forums filled.

     

    Cheers

    Finish is gloss blak primer with Airframe Aluminum Alclad base. A little polished Aluminum on the control surfaces for some contrast. Overcoated with Alclad Acrylic gloss.
