TSF 14: Unfamiliar colours by kanyiko TSF 14: Unfamiliar colours by kanyiko
A Messerschmitt in unfamiliar colours: as a Czechoslovak Air Force Avia S.99, sometime during 1946-1947. Definitely something different...

Back to the boring blue 'n greys 109s now, I guess...

Speaking of Bfs 109, Trumpeter released an E3 version which comes with the Swiss Air Force Decals.

They do! I had a Swiss 109D once, but I made some mistakes and ended up repainting it. I do plan on making a new Swiss 109 sometime in the future, but unfortunately I'm having troubles sourcing the right ones. The 109D variant is hard to find, and although Airfix recently issued a 109E, it's the wrong version for a Swiss Air Force one (109E-4 instead of E-3 - they have an entirely different canopy). I might think about making a Swiss 109G-6 though... some day.

Eduard has 1/48 and 1/32 scale Bf 109E's. Alley Cat has a resin conversion set for the Eduard Bf 109E that makes it a Swiss 109D.

I'm more of a 1/72 builder, I hardly ever go any larger - or smaller, for that matter. ;p

But, if you go to a larger scale, you can pack more detail inside. (Although there was one issue of Fine Scale Modeler where one guy managed to superdetail a 1/72 scale I-16.)

Bwah, I wouldn't say bigger is better, I've done pretty nice detailling jobs on 1/72 scale before:

By the way, some of the models on 1/72 scale nowadays are better than their 1/48 scale counterparts - the new 1/72 Revell B-17s, for instance, are infinitely superior to the 1/48 Monogram Fortresses...

If you're a good scratchbuilder, the Monogram B-17G is better because of the larger size and there's also more aftermarket parts for it. From what I've seen, the Revell B-17 has a couple flaws that can be dealt with, but are a bit tricky because of the small scale.

Can't say I've seen many flaws on mine yet (I got both the B-17F and B-17G kits, waiting to be built) although I can imagine it will need some work on some of the joins, especially the nose ones. The only real issue I'm aware of, are the missing windows on the nose of the "Memphis Belle" B-17F, although they're not too difficult to add...

I like it. I always like the unusual, the untypical!
