    Erich “Schmidtchen” Schmidt was born on 17 November 1914 at Neuhaus am Rennweg in the Sonneberg region of Thüringen.Schmidt was posted to JG 53 at the beginning of 1940. Leutnant Schmidt was assigned to 9./JG 53. He recorded his first victory on 12 August 1940 when he claimed a RAF Spitfire fighter shot down over the Isle of Wight. By the end of the aerial offensive against England, Schmidt had accumulated 17 victories, including three Spitfires shot down on 15 September to record his fifth through seventh victories.Operating over the Eastern front, Schmidt was to be particularly successful. On the opening day of Operation Barbarossa, 22 June 1941, Schmidt shot down four Russian aircraft (18-21). He recorded his 30th victory on 4 July when he shot a Russian I-16 fighter. Leutnant Schmidt was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 23 July by Oberst Werner Mölders (115 victories, RK-Br, killed in action 22 November 1941) for 30 victories.
    On 31 August 1941, Schmidt’s Bf 109 F-2 (W.Nr. 12 633) “Yellow 6” was hit by flak. He was seen to bale out of his stricken machine but has remained missing ever since.
    “Schmidtchen” Schmidt was credited with 47 victories.

    thanks fellas, I hope this remains better than what done so far in my hands but will not catch insurance.


    assembly is good, these new kits are airfix my liking me very much, I bought a spit MK I for GB here for this too, and control kit Lancaster bombers and vehicles, are two very good aspect kits ....

    I still have more pictures the plane almost mounted little putty mine and all for failures to mount

    Now I am assailed by a doubt:

    It is that on some models the 109 joints the parts forming the fuselage had the line from the cockpit to the tail what would be at the top or bottom ?, I've never bothered to spell this but want to return to time to recover the good feelings to make good models that long ago that I do

    Both rear fusleage halves of a Bf-109E were put together at the vertical plane of symmetry what means there were the lines and rivets on the top and bottom of the fuselage. However the top one seems to be either of a tight fitting or being filling with a putty. Therefore it isn't noticable often.

    Though this is a Buchon, it illustrates Wojtek's point:
