Scale : 1/48
Manufacturer / Model : Hasegawa Messerschmitt Bf109G-6 'Italian Air Force'
Extras : Extra Stormo decals, Eduard cockpit and mask.

I picked up the kit second hand a couple of years back from King's Hobbies in Austin. It had no decals and about one and a half kits in the box. I have purchased decals for the kit and picked up a Eduard cockpit set and mask for it.

The Hasegawa kit has been around a while so nothing new here but here is the basic break down of the kit. As mentioned in the intro, it has a kit and about half, so some items are double but that is mostly smaller parts like fuel tanks and the like. Tried out a colored background, think it works better for the off photo shots.

And now lets looks at the aircraft in the decal set. I'll have to defrost it when it get here, coming from Canada and all! This is Houston, shouldn't take long it's 73F and too be 77F by Tuesday. I think I like number II, I-IV are G-6's that I can choose from. I'd like to confirm them before I make a full decision, we all know how much research some decal suppliers do before the start printing swearing it is gospel history and all!

What air pressure are you using Don? I use about 15-18psi with Vallejo or any other paint for that matter. With my Aztek I also close down the paint volume to about half. I'm not sure how other ABs work but this is an Aztek more or less

No sorry, issues per say. It was just a statement of I've started I normally am doing 15-20psi. Model Air's I don't normally thin but sometimes a little.
