STEP BY STEP
The kit cockpit prior to painting
The retraction mechanism for the tail wheel together with the right half
of the part for anchoring it in place. Contrary to previous versions of the
Bf 109, the tail wheel is glued in place after fuselage assembly.
The left side of the cockpit after
painting with Gunze paints. The
steel etched seatbelts hail from
LööK set 644227 cockpit package.
The details are painted with Vallejo brush paints. The LööK instrument
panel from set 644227 fits very precisely.
The kit cockpit can be improved with placards and dials, either
etched parts or decals. I chose the decal option. Depth and highlights
are brought out using oil paints.
