This is my representation of "Red 1" of the JV-44 Wurger Staffel.  Whilst this subject aircraft has been very popular to build, it represents to me those last desperate weeks of the Luftwaffe in it's deaththrows. There is so much reference material for this aircraft as well. This project I've worked on/off for five years. It has been entirely "riveted" using the MDC system, which is involves a huge amount of time, but in my mind worth it.

It's received the following upgrades:

EagleParts cockpit - just amazing, but not easy to fit. EagleParts gun cowl - lessens that "Dolly Parton" look of the kit part. EagleParts nose ring. EagleCals decals. If you want to build an accurate D9, these EagleParts are well worth the cost and time taken to fit.

  • MDC wheels and instrument decals.

  • Some Eduard etched metal parts used in wheel well.

  • Wedgetail prop blades - have the right chord and diameter.

  • Radu Briznan seat harness - just lovely.

  • Gunze paints with oils and pigments used to weather.
