    7) Bf109E-4, "White 10", Werknummer 5244, 13 Squadron, Slovak Air Force, April 1943. This very interesting plane was painted RLM 74/75 over RLM 76 with a dense fuselage mottle of RLM 74/75/02. The plane also had an RLM 04 fuselage band, wingtips and spinner. The spinner also had a white base, and the cowl was overpainted with RLM 76 dots.

    Nice, another Slovakian Bf 109E! I like your choice Sergio. :D

    Here's what I have about Bf 109E-4 "White 10"... Two appearances are documented for this aircraft - prior to the departure to the Eastern front in October 1942 aircraft had E-7 type of spinner (top profile for other details) and after the return to Slovakia in summer 1943 it had older E-4 type of spinner and doted engine cowling probably in RLM 76 (bottom profile). In both cases note the Letka 13 emblem on the engine cowling.

    According to some historians "White 10" had W.Nr. 5244. Originally served with Stab/JG 52, Calais in 1941, then with 1. Erg.Gr./JG 52. On 26th June 1941 damaged at Elbing. Subsequently repaired and delivered to Slovakia in 1942. Service with Slovak Air Arms in 1942-1944. On 27th October 1942 departured to the Eastern front with first front team of Letka 13. Returned to Slovakia on 17th July 1943. Flown by many Slovakian pilots, including Julius Trnka commanding officer of Flight School and František Hanovec one of the most experienced Slovak pilots and 7 victory ace. During the National Uprising this aircraft was used by the insurgents and destroyed on ground during an Luftwaffe air raid on 31st August 1944.

    Another interesting subject Sergio and that paint scheme looks like it could be a challenge.

    The point was to make models from foreign countries allied or axis and look different camouflage is the best of these events. This model because I do mimujer likes me for complication although I like more the other model of this Gb the Bulgarian.
    good Following the assembly process, I've had an awesome job to fit the wings I've had more than two hours to see how fit them without losing the dihedral.

    Great subject Sergio. If that's wire your using to set the dihedral, brilliant. Never thought of that.

    Nice work so far Sergio. I have the same book (among others). Very good reference for Letka 13 with lot of photos and color profiles.

    True. Good progress Sergio but you may want to check on the alignment of the tailplane before gluing on the struts.

    The wing dihedral looks good but what about the tail one?

    because they had not yet worked in the tail, the ailerons were subjects with a small ball of blue track only to see no more left, and are now glued beams of the same too.
