Hasegawa 1/32 Bf 109G-6 - Ralph Riese

Hasegawa's 1/32 Bf109 G-6 kit with BarracudaCast's Bf 109G Wheels - Ribbed Hub, Smooth Tire (BR32071) and an EagleParts spinner. The model was built to represent one of a number of G-6 night-fighters flown by Lt. Manfred Dieterle, while serving with 3./JG 300 "Wilde Sau". The model was painted with Tamiya and Gunze acrylic colors. Markings were applied using a combination of vinyl masks from Montex (Super Mask K32024) and from Miracle Paint Masks.

BarracudaCast's wheels received some extra treatment to try to bring out the delicate scale detail. Firstly, hubs were painted with Tamiya's X-18 Semi Gloss Black and tires with XF-63 German Gray. A highly-thinned 50:50 mix of Tamiya's XF-52 Flat Earth and XF-78 Wooden Deck Tan was then misted over the tires, followed by a wash of thinned Vallejo Model Color 70822 German Cam. Black Brown. Vallejo Panzer Aces 321 Highlight British Tkcr (not shown) was applied to the tires with a small piece of sponge. Silver highlights were added to the hubs with XF-16 Flat Aluminum, followed by a wash of thinned Vallejo Model Color 70826 German Cam. Medium Brown. Other wear and tear was added using water-soluble Faber-Castell pencils and a 2B graphite pencil. Tamiya's XF-16 Flat Aluminum was mixed with some Windsor & Newton Raw Umber oil paint and dry-brushed very lightly over the hub ribs and axle nuts. Finally the raised details on the tires were highlighted with the edge of Faber-Castell's Cool Gray III pencil.
