Bought this about 12 months ago with the intention of getting stuck into it straight away, ahh well, this is going to a diorama composition from a photograph I saw on the net of the FW109 being serviced and refuelled, from a Ketterand, so I have acquired the Tamiya Ketterand, and a CMK Luftwaffe ground crew set.
Started as usual with the cockpit sanded off the raised details to allow for the photo etch set in the kit.
Sprayed the RLM 66 black grey using Valejo Luftwaffe set Model Air paints, then assembled the etch panels and the belts for the seat. Next step is to build the bits under the machine gun upper cowl, these have been painted gloss Alclad base then white Aluminium. All pretty straight forward so far with no fit issues, next up will be the engine frame work and the fuselage halves.



































Thanks for looking I will post progress as it happenss

Gary

Another update on progress so far, the sub assemblies of the rear of the engine and upper cowl machine gun bay completed, scratch built the ammunition belt on the right machine gun used double sided clear tape cut into a 5mm strip, then cut 5mm lengths of fine fishing line, stuck the bits of fishing line to the tape then put in place on the machine gun, fishing line then painted using Mr Metalcolour brass. Put in the rear tail wheel leg and the exhausts, then fixed the cockpit and machine gun/engine sub assemblies in place, and closed up the 2 fuselage halves, and that's where it's at for now.





























Great fit of all the bits so far and really enjoying it will post more as it happens.
Gary

Hi Pete good to hear from you just been going through the W&G thread man that's good, still laughing now, where did you get those Mylar sanders from mate, they certainly did the job on those vinyl bits, might be good on the awful airfix polythene 1/72 figures.
I think Eduard have done a 32nd Me 109 and it wasn't that expensive by all accounts.

Update on progress which sort of slowed down a bit due to a bit of a health scare of the dicky ticker kind, so apologies for not keeping things current.
As the photos show, the cockpit halves are joined and the wings attached couple of little areas of filler needed along the wing roots, but nothing too major, reinstated some of the lost panel and rivet details, masked off the cockpit, then given a few coats of Vallejo grey primer, sprayed under wing panels with Alclad black base, then sprayed with Alclad's new semi matt aluminium.This was then masked off and the whole aircraft sprayed with Gunze 417 light grey blue. Next stage was to mask up the grey for the next colour using Blutack and Tamiya tape in readiness for the Olive drab upper fuselage and wing camouflage pattern. The underside was masked so that the Black grey section of the wing could be sprayed. Masked off the rear fuselage band and sprayed matt white, then re masked for the Green checks. Light mottling then applied to the rudder.Some exhaust streaking airbrushed using Gunze Soot and Tamiya smoke and Gunze Rust and Tamiya smoke.
Decals went on next, and these were superb only needing a few dabs of softener and set to get them to pull down nicely. More weathering then applied using various shades of my teenage daughters eye shadows, and Flory grime and dark dirt clay washes. All sealed with Windsor and Newton Satin UV clear varnish.
Have also started on the ketterandkraft and its generator trolley, and the figures from ICM and the Tamiya figures in the Ketterandkraft kit.






































































Sorry its abit photo intensive hope you enjoy, any comments or criticisms welcome

Thanks Simon and Fabian, its been really enjoyable to build, the Eduard kit is as usual great to build, and the Tamiya Ketterankraft is superb, the ICM figures are beautifully sculpted, the faces of all the figures having very different features, just in the process of sorting out a decent base and then just need to finish off the remaining 5 or so figures the fuel drums and various tools etc, should hopefully look quiet good when its done.
Thanks again for your comments guys.
Gary
