Messerschmitt Bf109F-4 6./JG 5

Bf 109F-4 yellow 10, Hans Dobrich 6./JG 5, Petsamo 1942 

This is actually a de-tropicalized F-4, meaning that the initial RLM79/RLM78 was over-painted with patches of RLM 70 and RLM 75 and the sand filter was removed, therefore making it more suitable for European theater.  Remnants of the whitetail band aft were still visible, meaning this plane used to operate in North Africa. 18 white victory bars are visible on the rudder...

Kit is by Hasegawa + Aires cockpit & exhaust, scratched panel lines and completely riveted. Decals are Kagero's Luftwaffe over the Far North.
