I've finally got'en started building one of my favorite WWII fighters and its from a kit this time not from scratch! I picked this kit up here on RCG over a year ago and just have been to busy building scratch foamies. To power this one I also picked up a YS 120 4 stroker in the RCG classifieds as well. This is the most powerful engine I've bought so far.
So far this build has been simple and relaxing, except when I was trying to decide if I should do the scale L/G modification. Late last nite or really early this morning about 3:00am I came to the conclusion that the realatively simple changes weren't worth it and went w/ the TF plans. I'll be using mechanical retracts from Hobbico (all metal and no slop on the first set I've got in my Me 109). I have been cutting a little of the fat off of the bulkheads on those behind the wing to lighten her up where I can.
Can't seem to put the glue and knife away, on this one. Actually I haven't changed much in that way since I was a kid building Guillows kits in record time.
Any way this is what I've completed in a week of evening plus a weekend.
