Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6 1/72 Hasegawa

It is my 18th finished kit in my Bf-109 series collection. This Bf-109 G6 flown by Arnold Döring belonged to 2/JG-300 Wilde Sau based in Germany in 1943. Due to the unit’s deployment in night fighter operations, the standard day camouflage was adopted by spraying black colour onto fuselage sides and over the white crosses. There is a lot of interpretations of that camouflage based on more or less two known B/W photos.
As I studied these photos and sources from decal makers I decided to proceed making camouflage with my own interpretation. The result you can see in the pictures. Decals are Eagle Calls except for insignia on the cowl, which is from OWL decal sheet.

The kit is well known old Hasegawa. The build was OOB, taking into account features of the real plane, e.g. no armoured headrest, antennas, underwing cannons. I needed a small amount of filler and the fitting of the canopy was also not ideal. Unfortunately, I discovered imperfections around the canopy area only after taking final pictures. As it is almost invisible in my display cabinet I am satisfied with the result and happy to have this camouflage variant in my Bf-109 collection there.

    I will very much look forward to seeing your next “Wilde Sau” Bf 109 as I am sure it will be of the highest standard as all of your aircraft inevitably are 🙂
