The Spitfire's main antagonist during the Battle of Britain:

Back to work on my Midwest Models' ME-109 (actually BF-109...Bayerische Flugzeugwerke (BFW-Bavarian Aircraft Works), but it says ME on the box.

This will be the G...or "Gustave" model, primarily because I'm lazy, and the G model won't make me install struts on the horizontal stabilizer.  And before I get "History Nerd-Pounced" about this...I KNOW the Gustave was introduced after the BoB...but I don't care.

The Gustave was also one of the "clean wing" 109 variants, with all the guns moved to the fuselage, and no barrels protruding from the wing's leading edges (more justified lazyness for me) to mess up their smoothness.

The Enya .15 Castor Slinger is only temporarily installed in the Gustave's nose, as I search for a properly bulbous-shaped spinner like those of the G model.

Why all this detail concern over a non-scale, slab-bodied control liner?  It's just the way I roll...er, fly.

The really good part is that I finally started feeling like messing with these silly things again.  

"Go Gustave!!!!"

Thank you Fred!

Maybe this time, I'll at least get it out of "the fish skeleton" stage.

Love your first picture Kim, picture of the Bf-109 for insperation, Sig-ment at the ready and an Enya .15 with the early carburetor "temporarly" mounted. You going to throttle this thing?

Seekers playing softly on the boom-box?
