    Bf109G-2a ‘White A’ : Cpt.Av. Constantin ‘Bazu’ Cantacuzino Aircraft in Foreign Service WWII GB

    User Name : Wayne Little
    Category : Non Competing Judge
    Entry : Romanian marked German Bf109G-2
    Kit : Revell Boxed (Ex-Hasegawa) 1/32 Bf109G-4

    Time to kick off the new Group Build, wanted an opportunity to get stuck into this one (and another to appear shortly).

    Capitan Aviator Constantin ‘Bazu’ Cantacuzino was Romania’s top scoring Ace with 56 Victories.
    Most of which were scored against Russian aircraft as is depicted on this particular aircraft, later Cantacuzino would also claim some American and German victories on Home defence duties.
    The aircraft is depicted during June 1944 when the tail of his aircraft carried 42 Russian Victories. During this period he was flying a Romanian marked Bf109G, the aircraft was assembled in Romania from components supplied from Germany and designated as a Bf109G-2a, the bump visible on the port wing for the larger main wheels indicate it as a late G-2 or G-4.

    Photo Credits: Internet site about Romanian Aircraft, will properly credit the source shortly....which is Romanian Military History Forum

    Good thing the plastic is a different color from your other 109 or things could get confusing!

    Sticking with the old favourites matey, you must have a Geschwader of them floating round the house. Like the idea of a Romanian bird as well.
