Did someone say Messerschmidt GB? It's about time I tackled one of the "mainstream" Tintin build projects anyway, so getting in on a Scalemates GB (even tangentially) seems like the perfect excuse, no?

Should be a G variant, Greg, with Blue rider decals, I presume.

actually, the Bordurian Bf109 was a hotchpotch of various versions, the engine & wings came from the Bertha while the fuselage & wingtips came from the Friedrich. the propellor came from the Gustav variant.

Hmm... perhaps I'll switch to the G variant. I have another Academy kit after all. I knew the Tintin one was a hodgepodge, so I just went with whatever one I'd assigned earlier from my stash. After a review though, I think the wing shape makes the biggest difference.

Does anyone know where I put the Eduard PE fret that I supposedly have in my stash? Scalemates says I have one... but I can't find it. Usually I keep them in the kit box, but this one is nowhere to be found. Hmmm...

I wish you good hunting finding the pe. I have two boxes full of 109s but still find bits and pieces all over the place

Resurrected this one. Since it'll be "in flight" (with no pilot!) I had to shave the wheels to fit inside the wells. To make it even more of a challenge, there's a bit of a slope towards the front. It was snug, but I got it in and glued in place.
