Just Putting Plastic Things Together (WWII 1/144 Luftwaffe): Part II

Jumping away from RPG Fantasy and Sci-Fi a couple of small scale kits caught my eye from the "to do" pile of unmade kits, 1/144 Me-109's from Zvezda (see below):


This brings my collection of Me-109's to a total of four, in other words a nice little "finger four" Luftwaffe Schwarm.  


The kit is a basic 'almost' snap together affair, but I think it will paint up nicely. The only unfortunate downside is their attempt at decals (I think I will be trying to paint mine on).

Footnote:
Looking around the net I just spotted an interesting Zvezda new 1/144 kit the Hawker Hurricane Mk I, which immediately goes on the Xmas list. They also seem to be going British, doing a 15mm Matilda II and Bedford truck! If only I could justify getting one as I game in 20mm, 1/200 and 1/1300 - No way can I sanely go into another scale!

The Matilda isn't a bad little tank, but the turret MG is a bit weak on Zvezda's. I haven't gotten around to replacing mine yet.

Hello Arquinsel,

The turret mg looks interesting
Is it a Vickers HMG - the BEF's Matilda II had these, the later 8th Army Western Desert ones has a Besa LMG

Are both versions catered for?

Hello Arjan,

I was so pleased when I saw i I wanted to "spread the word"
