    Messerschmitt Bf-109F-2 (Italeri 1/72)

    Post  aexuni on Thu May 13, 2010 12:13 am

    Hi all. Let me show you (in order to intruduce myself in society) one of the last models. She depicts Eduard Neumann's horse, with a faded paint effect - at least I tried -. No doubt it's not the best kit on 1/72, but I've put on her a little effort. Riveeted with Trumpy machine and added an Aires cockpit. The figures belong to CMK catalogue. I hope you like her.
    Best regards.

    Is top notch! Not many brave aircraft modellers like to weather their planes but I think you pulled it off real well! Hard to tell at all its 1/72 too!!!!

    Prosit (Well done)

    Hala!

    I am seeing a taste of the spanish school here! Love the weathering effects, especially considering it's 1/72. I really like the oil stains, scortched colour and dusting ... simply realistic!

    Keep sharing!

    Great finish Angel ..I love it ...but I have some criticise.. being a 109 fanatic ...I wasn't going to comment, because her my friends will kill me for this... but for a 1/72 although they are nice presented ,the rivets are overscale, and the wheel wells looks bads, and that nose profile ... sorry for the hard words , but I can't let it go.. at least I am honest now ..but as I told you the finish is beautiful...

    Wow, whatever the kit's defects, you did a magnificent job in capturing the feel of what those birds when through in the harsh desert environment. Well done, brilliant.

    Holy sh..., that's some finish!
    Sorry I'm just seeing your post now - I don't get much chance to spend time on the forum. I've done this model, but nothing close to your level of finish! Skyhigh is our eternal critic and will tell you the textbook truth to your face - that's why we love him so much!

    Although I don't like to weather my models, I find your rendering great considering this is a very small model and it is not the most perfect of Italeri's creations. Awesome work - hope to see more of yours on our forum. Asta la vista!

    And he's a Messerschmit fanatic! I think he has more knowledge of those birds than even the builders them selfs!
