Christos Papadopoulos has sent in images of his build of the Hasegawa Bf109-E, and the results look great.

Great build, Christos. Truly one of the most colorful 109s with a lot of cool markings.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Jesper.Thank you very much for your comments.I believe that the J.G 77,in which this aircraft belongs,had three of the most beautiful aircrafts that have ever existed in Luftwaffe.Apart from the black 10,the black 5 and the BF 109F yellow 3.They must have an artist in there!

According to photographs, I think that this model has insufficient wing dihedral, which unfortunately hampers my final impression. The prominent wing dihedral of the Bf-109 is very noticeable on photos of the real machine.

Hi Daniel.Let me inform you that this construction was made in 1999.From what I remember and as you can see in photos 6,11,15 I did not use any stooges in the joint of wings and fuselage,which gives us the right dihedral angle.Not to mention that the application of Hasegawa was excellent.This model participated in the nationwide competition. I'm not an expert.However, the 3 judges told me nothing about the dihedral.I guess it's a mistake of the Hasegawa or maybe thatís the way it looks in the photos.Thank you for the observation.

Hi Christos,
Aside from the wing dihedral, it is still a wonderful build and I like it very much!!!
