Manufacturer: Eduard & Airmodel conversion
Model: 82111X Messerschmitt Bf 109G Late Model Overtrees & AMLA4858 Resin Conversion kit
Scale: 1:48
Extras: I did have to raid the spares box for national insignia, as the overtrees kit has none, and the ones I got with the kit were too fragile. It was brush-painted, as I don't have access to an airbrush.

Even though this is not specifically on the list of aircraft H-W Lerche flew (there are only a couple of '109s specifically listed- the bulk are just assumed), it was stationed at an airfield he could have visited, so I'll chalk this one up to a "what-if-he-flew-it" as a palate-cleanser after my SM.79.

This particular aircraft was assigned to 1/NJGr 10 for testing, at Werneuchen, a few miles from Rechlin. The Naxos installation was designed to locate H2S-equipped Pathfinder bombers.

The required pictures:

and an adjusted pic (just added a bit of noise and made it greyscale:

So, as you can see a little heavy on the mottle, and light on the exhaust and shadow, but I'm happy with her.
