This is a special project, launched in May 2021, to build five new Bf 109 models. It is an experiment to see if models can be built by taking advantage of "economies of scale" by building several roughly similar models at the same time.
These are the planes we plan to model:
|Variant||Identity||Operator||Place & Date||Kit|
|Bf 109G-2||MT-213, "White 3"||1/HLeLv 34, Ilmavoimat||Suulajärvi, April 1944||Fine Molds|
|Bf 109G-6 (trop)||MT-431||1/HLeLv 24, Ilmavoimat||Utti, September 1944||Fine Molds|
|Bf 109G-6||MT-452, "Yellow 4"||HLeLv 31, Ilmavoimat||Kauhava, 1948||Fine Molds|
|Bf 109G-6 (late)||MT-456, "Yellow 6"||1/HLeLv 24, Ilmavoimat||Lappeenranta, June 1944||Premium Hobbies (Academy)|
|Bf 109E-7||<<||III/JG 5, Luftwaffe||Petsamo, August 1942||Airfix|
We document this effort in a series of blog posts:
As part of the project, we will also make our Bf 109 reference photos available.
An SVG graphic suitable for use with a computer-controlled cutter (such as the Cricut Maker) is downloadable here. It was designed for the Fine Molds' "Erla" hood, but works well with the Premium Hobbies kit too.
