more Luftwaffe fighters - Intech G-2 & new tool Airfix Bf 109 1/72nd scale

 Putting the finishing touches to some more small scale fighters before tackling bigger projects. Here the 'new-tool' Bf 109 G-6 is finished as a Bf 109 G-2 Trop in the markings of a 2./JG77 machine as seen in Tunisia in late 1942. Note the 2. Staffel emblem aft of the fuselage cross - Kagero decals. The Airfix G-6 is  back-dated to a G-2 by removing the cowl and wing bulges and replacing the solid hub main wheels with the spoked variety. Meander/squiggle camo finished using a 0.3 mm nozzle - too big I think. By way of comparison, an Intech Bf 109 G-2 also of  JG77 as flown by Werner Killer (photo above), again decals from the Kagero 'Air Battles' 'Luftwaffe over Tunisia' book.


  1. Both very clean looking builds and well painted. The cammo on the second plane is very nice...airbrush?

  2. thanks ...airbrushed ...but tidied up with a brush dipped in thinners, so rather defeats the object I suppose..

  3. Very nice work.The new Airfix toolings are great.

  4. cheers,
    yep I built the new Spitfire a page or so back..
