Eduard Bf 109G Weekend Edition
« on: February 05, 2018, 01:49:36 AM »
It seems a shame I've waited so long to build one of these Eduard Gustavs so I'm starting this Weekend kit tonight. It's quite a nice offering!

I'am join the force :)) Also Eduard Weekend edition, my sample will be Barkhorn machine, true top ace of Luftwaffe. It will be energized by three Brassin sets.

Oh, this is a good idea, No.1--it will give contrast between the Weekend Editions with no upgrades and your build with Brassin! I'll use only what is in the kit with no embellishment! My sample will be the White 9 kit decals from JG27.

Thank you, you give inspiration ;) One point, maybe you know but I did not take attention- this central frame in rear cockpit canopy is inside and in cockpit color. I make mistake on some build and paint it externally  :-red :-wall

On the Weekender, cockpit is partially assembled and all areas have gotten their RLM66. I've found the parts fit is very nice so far and the build relaxing.

Lots less parts on my side, but the kit goes together well. This one has a decal for instrument panel and an engraved panel. I constructed both for comparison but used the engraved one in the kit. I was really rather impressed with the seatbelt decals--they went on easily and look pretty good. If I had cut some .005 styrene into strips and applied the belt decals to them the belts would have a 3D look to them.

Once I started to assemble the major parts the fit was likewise quite nice, with putty needed in only a few places.
