Trumpeter 1/32 Bf 109G-10 "Yellow 7"
By Christian Kaluza
This is the Trumpeter kit with some scratchbuilding and changes to made it look more like the real aircraft.
A friend of mine was so nice to take some pictures of the Bf 109G-4 displayed in Technikmuseum Speyer so I had a pretty good look on the real one from many angles etc.
As we all know the Trumpeter kit is not perfect but acceptable in my eyes. It is built pretty much OOB except of a pair of Eduard Resin wheels and some scavenged parts from other PE frets I had laying around like the seatbelts.
The Trumpeter kit itself is covered in recessed rivets but they left some rivet lines untouched so I added them and changed the rivets to "screws" with a beading tool where necessary additionally I added the piano hinges on the engine panels.
After reading the awesome Revell Bf 109 reviews I realised I made some pretty grave mistakes just following the Trumpeter instructions...but yeah...no chance in changing that now. So please don't mind the wrong decals and MW50 and fuel tank filler points etc.
