ME 109E-4 Trop (Tamiya 1/72)

Bf 109E-4/ Trop 'Black 8', flown by Feldwebel Franz Elles, 8./JG 27, April 1941

(Tamiya 1/72)

Hi all!
Here is the latest addition to my collection, this little Tamiya gem in 1/72nd scale is a ME109E-4 Trop painted to represent the plane flown by Feldwebel Franz Elles, 8./JG27, Libya 1941.

Here are some photos:

In this model I had the opportunity to do a few things for the first time: First time I used my Harder & Steenbeck airbrush (awesome!), first time I used the Micro SET and Micro SOL for the decals and finally first time I have used Vallejo Matt Varnish (and I loved it!).

I consider this model the best airplane model I've done so far and I'm very pleased with the result.

Cheers and see you later mates!
