Luftwaffe Bf-109E3

WW-II, 1/48 Scale

This is the Hasegawa Bf-109E4 kit that was released in the late 1980s.  The model depicts "Pips" Priller's Bf-109E3 depicted on a muddy Belgian airfield during the Battle of Britain.  It was slightly modified to back-date it to an E3 variant.  Luftwaffe eagle is resin casting of the eagle worn on my uncle's hat during WW-II.  This was my first attempt at making a muddy scene (back in the spring of 1996) and in retrospect, it could have been much better that it was.  Also, the flash sort of overpowered the "water" in the muddy tire tracks and made them look much more stark than they actually are.
