    Accessories/Extras : Eduard Seatbelts

    My first of hopefully two entries for this GB will be my Third Bf109 in foreign markings, part of a group I was originally going to do in 1/48, but grew into a 1/32 series instead.
    This time a Bf109G-2 in Finnish service, initially delivered to the Fins from Germany in 74/75/76 camo, this aircraft was later repainted in Olive green and Black, only a small number were done in this manner.
    MT-213 is depicted as of May 1944 after repainting in the Olive Green and Black camo and at this time was flown by 16.5 victory Ace Lt. Eero Juhani Riihikallio, 3 of his total claims were made in this aircraft.

    MT-213’s short History
    10th March 1943, Manu Frantila pilots Bf109G-2, RJ+SX, W.Nr. 14754 soon to become MT-213 on it’s ferry flight from the Wiener-Neustadt factory in Germany to Helsinki Malmi Airfield, arriving on the 14th March.
    March 1943 delivered to 3 Le/Lv 34 piloted by Lt. R. Valli .
    May 1 1944, delivered to 2/HLeLv 24 flown by Lt. E. Riihikallio.
    July 6th 1944 delivered to 2/HLeLv 28, July 18th 1944 Crashed.
    MT213 logged 158 Hours and the aircraft was credited with a total of 10 victories via various pilots.


    Photo 1 shows MT-213 in April 1943 still in Original german Grey(s) camo.

    Good one Wayne. And don't listen to them. They're just jealous because you make better engine noises then they do.

    I can do a pretty decent motor-boat.
    All I need is a bowl of baked beans and some beer. Mix well and wait for about an hour....
