    First Name: Igor
    Category:3
    Scale: 1/72
    Kit Manufacturer: Hasegawa
    Accessories: Custom Decals From Wayne, Airies Engine and Cockpit Detail set.
    Model Type: Bf-109G-6
    Details: Alfred Grislawski's Bf-109G-6 from JG50

    The plan is to cut the canopy, open it up and detail the interior.
    Next have the cowlings and the engine showing :)
    and to top it off because she Is a heavy hitter, gun pods on the wings, just like the original bird :)

    Its been a while modeling so we'll see how it goes, work has kept me busy, but I've got some time in the summer to sneak in a GB :)



    BIG Thanks goes out to Wayne for sending me some decals for Grislawski's bird

    I'll be using one of these kits and the Airies kit :)

    Looking good but I am not sure if it is a correct choice for the GB.

    It has the gunpods, that's why I assumed it was a "heavy hitter" :) She might be a bit slower than the reg. 109 but packs more punch :)

    If it isn't eligible I'll enter the P-39. I have one in the New Guinea theme.

    I'm not a fan of cleaning resin parts, it's a pain, but I do like the detail and using them. Good start mate.

    Thanks all :) :D heres some more work yesterday and today, cutting resin is such hard work :D I'm taking it slow and so far it has been going good.

    [​IMG]
    Both pieces were cut and then re-fined the later pictures didn't come out that great :D
    [​IMG]
    Both sections of the fuselage cut out so the engine can fit.

    Double yep. In that scale, most of the resin would be crazy glued to my fingers. Good start Igor.

    Nice parts and good job cleaning them up. That's not something I've tried as yet.
