    Some additional textures

    The included RLM 70/71/65 scheme of JG132 was based on a generic texture for IL2. As it was a bit pale in my opinion, I decided to make a sort of paintkit for this model.

    I just uploaded the first two textures based on this paintkit.

    Red 3 of 5./JG132 was actually a B-2. But as I though it was quite colourful, I decided to cheat a bit.....





    On request its a bit weathered. But as I already announced not too much.....

    Yellow 10 from II/JG132 was a B-1 which was one of the first Bf109 to be received by JG132. This aircraft participated in the display flight in Hungary in June 1937. The picture from the original Yellow 10 xomes from Falcon's Messerschmitt Bf109 Hangar.





    Enjoy,
    Huub

    Thanks for the kind words Mav, I'm glad you like them.

    About the window: "Yes!!!"

    Believe it or not, but its even on page 3 in the official Bf109E manual (Betriebs- und Rüstanleitung Me109 mit Motor DB601)

    h. Anlassen des Motors
    1. Kabine schliessen (Kabinengriff in stellung "Zu"). Rechtes kabinenfenster öffnen.

    (h. Starting the engine
    1. Close canopy (cockpit lever at "closed". Open the right-side cockpit window.)

    So it wasn't just there, it was even mandatory to open it.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    The prototype V-3 was later repainted with the code 6-1 and a green heart representing Thuringia, Hannes Trautloft's home town, in the green heart of Germany, was applied beneath the canopy.
    Trautloft's personal marking later became the unit insignia from Jagdgeschader 54.







    As soon as you start to post screenshots you suddenly see things which still need to be done! But nearly there............

    Cheers,
    Huub
