The voices in my head said: "do it, just do it.".

The IAR Bf109G-6a, using the Radu Brinzin conversion and decals. The decals lifted from their backing quite quickly and were very fragile. They were fine with MicroScale Blue Bottle, and it was a help, but the Red Bottle was too hot. For the model, I used the Hase Bf109G-6 (what else!?).


The G-6a was Romanian IAR built. The primary difference was the gun breach bulges. They were a different shape from the German ones and for all practical purposes it was simply aerodynamic design. The IAR G-6a also did not have a radio loop on top, nor did it have the FuG antenna on the underside. It used the tall radio mast and the glazed head armor.

The aircraft I modeled was in service with the Regimentul 180 in 1952.


There is no such thing as an unbuildable kit, just some kits one may consider not worth building.
