    This will be the start for me in the Group build Hase 1/32 St17 with a Verlinden kit added.I think this makes me about a class 2 but if I start to add some other scratch I guess the mods move me to a 1?

    Looks good Javlin!

    As for the level, I'd say it depends on your ability rather than the accessories you'll be using - I'll be scratch building and converting a bit, myself, but I'm definitely not a class 1!!!

    The tools Sir are at my disposale ;).I decided to visit the LHS today and came back with the Fujumi 1/48 G14/AS.I have found Erich by order for JG54,52 and some JG3 for G6's do these comply?I am sorry never have really read much on the Luft except about the KG200.The LHS had a Hase K4 in 1/32 no band on the fuselage and no mention of extra decals so I passed.The G's have a better shape anyway in front of the pit to me.There will be on added kit later,a surprise let's say,while I am building all these 109's what's another.The mystery plane will not qualify for the build.Kevin

    So I found the answer in one of the old Action books Erich

    JG 1 Red__________ JG 51 Gr/Wh/Gr
    JG 3 White_________ JG 52 Red/Wh
    JG 4 Bl/Wh/Bl _______JG 53 Black
    JG 5 Bl/Yel__________JG 77 Wh/Gr
    JG 11 Yellow ________JG 300 Bl/Wh/Bl

    The book states that the bands did not really showing themselves till the summer 1944 thus the reason Hartmanns plane did not have them.The kit ST17 depicts something early 10/43 and that JG 52 was part of "Reichsverteidigund"="defense of the Reich".I might still look for some other decals employing the Red/Wh band as long it's still G6 of course.Kevin

    The Fujimi kit is a nice one Kevin...take care in fitting the cowling pieces to get the position of the cowl bulge just right!:D

    Don't recall JG 52 using their Red/White bands.....

    Not much to post a couple of pics.i have gotten started on two of the three pits so far.I still need to do some highlights to bring some things out

    On this pic it's the quad on the left side I just did not like the nobs so the inner got cut off and some scrap PE with white glue on the end.The main one to the rear the handle was thinned and button shaved to scale.

    This pic shows the Verlinden fit to the left with PE pedals and foil straps and the kit version on the right straps will be added here also.The engine bay is going to be a challenge with all the plumbing.The Verle kit is OK but damn the instructions suck for placement of parts.

    Oh yea could not myself find any pics of JG52 with defense bands so have ordered and decided on Yellow 1 of JG54 flown by Schilling
