1/72 AZ models Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on Sept 26 2022



Here is my Bf 109E-3 in a colorful, Swiss paint scheme. The J-346 belonged to the FL. Kp. 8 (Flieger Kompanie 8) in Thun (1944).

The kit (#AZ 7664) from AZ includes decals for three attractive Swiss paintings. The parts are fitting very well and are lovely detailed, also the cockpit. 

Just the upper part of the cowl was a bit too short, so I reworked the area where the two small slots are, between the prop and the muzzles. 

I painted the model with colors from Humbrol and Revell with a brush. After attaching the decals, which are printed in a good quality, I sealed the ´109 with clear, flat varnish from Tamiya.
