Brilliant "H" , I love that plane. I have always wanted to build a decent sized model plane, 1/6 scale is a bit daunting but i think i might have a crack Very Happy .

Cheers for stopping by Steve mate, glad you like it, I drove for miles before I found the old air base it was like I was destined to find it, and what a great piece of our lost history I'm so pleased I found it, a lot of the road around it was in flood still, so I've got a lot more to explore for more possible shoots as the better weather gets here sunny

I have pinned down that this me 109 is from the Richthofen Geschwader
Unit: 8./JG 2 "Richthofen"
Serial: 6+~
Le Havre-Octeville, August 1940.


here is a link on facebook , maybe you could pinpoint who the plane actually belonged to if those markings are indeed correct historicaly !

Amazing detective work Jay!!

Where did you get the plane from Ian? Is the seller the person who built it? Be interesting to hear how he came to put those particular markings on it and if he was aware what they were or if he was just copying a photo.

I picked it up from a junk shop mate the shop keeper said he'd got it from the makers wife so not sure if he's still about Crying or Very sad but next time I go to the shop I'll try to find a bit more scratch geek
