Japanese Messerschmitt

Hello all, This model was painted in Vallejo Model colours with the hairy stick. This is also the first time I have attempted to do the mottling camouflage.

Model is Airfix 1:48 scale. This is a Messerschmitt Bf 109E-7. This plane was the first of seven planes sent to Japan for evaluation by the Imperial Japanese Army airforce in 1941.

Great looking Emil :cool

They evaluated 7 unarmed Bf-109 E-7's in 1941. They were used in comparison trials by the Japanese Army Air Force with the Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa, Nakajima Ki-44 Shoki and the Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien. As the Japanese were only interested in the DB 601 engine and license-built it for their Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien fighter, they had little interest in the Bf 109 itself.

Excellent model PB hairy stick finish is superb and the mottle is very good. How did you do that, chop a brush down very short?

Thank you all for your kind words. Yes Del I cut a brush down to around 1/8th of an inch and used a very dry brush.

That's a very nicely finished model. I like seeing the slightly unusual schemes.
