    Hello All,

    Here is my penultimate build of 2010. It's the 1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109F-4 Trop with Hasegawa kit decals apart for the "gelbe 14" which is from Kagero.
    This aircraft was the last F-4 flown by the Hauptmann H. J. Marseille, staffelkapitan 3./JG27, during September 1942 before being killing in a flying accident while flying a Bf 109G-2 W.Nr 14256.
    Marseille claimed more than 40 victories while flying his last F-4 (W.Nr 8673) during September 1942.
    Hope you'll like it...

    Outstanding!

    So the main wheel tires had white walls too? I know about the tail wheel but not the mains.
