Chris Wauchop Scale Models and Photography
Hasegawa 1/32 Me Bf 109 F-4 / Trop as flown by Hans-Joachim Marseilles during February 1942.
50 kill marks on rudder.
Stunning work Chris, always enjoy your 109’s.
Thanks Frank, much appreciated.
Hooo! effects are real impressive, the 109 is your preference for what I see, I thought if these planes in the desert operavan had some wear on the wings? by the sun and dry climate?
You are right again Ben, but the photos of this plane show that the paint on the upper wings and fuselage was in pretty good condition. For some reason the upper wing crosses were badly worn. Not really sure why this was.
Chris, forgive my curiosity, I have some pictures I take ME-109 around Hasegawa 1/32 are from a friend who is a fan of the Luftwaffe, as I can send the photos?
Ben, can you put them on Facebook and send me a link, I would really like to see them.
Indeed, the photos are already on your facebook space.
Chris, you may have an email address, to attach more photos.
A truly beautiful model. I would love to see more shots. email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
One of my favorites of yours. I think it gets the ‘look’ just right. Brett’s photography is just right too.
Chris- Amazing work as usual. Have been working on the Eduard 1/32 Bf-109 E3 for 80th anniversary of Battle of Britain- not an easy kit! Anyways, just picked up the Hasegawa 1/32 Bf-109 F4. Do you recall the Desert exterior colors you used? Thanks!
Chris, I also have a question regarding to this desert scheme. Do you remember how you painted the demarcation line between upper and lower surfaces (both on the wing’s leading edge and the fuselage side)? Was it freehand or using some kind of masking (loose masking maybe)? They look quite soft, but on the other hand they are so damn straight!
Tomasz the wing leading edge was sprayed freehand but the fuselage was done slightly differently. To give me a straight line to follow I first masked the demarcation line with Tamiya tape and then very lightly sprayed it with the upper surface colour. When the tape was removed it left me with a very faint but very straight line which I used as a guide to then freehand spray the heavier coat of the same colour. Doing it this way gave me the straight but tight soft edge.
Hope this explains it.
Sure Chris. You’ve put it as clear as day. Thanks!
