As I may have mentioned in earlier posts, I use 1/144 scale aircraft with my 20mm toys. Sounds odd but strangely look right. In the early 1990s when the Megablitz project got underway there were really only a few Revell kits on the market but over the past few years the internet has allowed access to more manufacturers and in particular the partly pre-built Japanese kits (known as Gashapon, or trading kits).
As a result I now have quite a collection of aircraft, and the range of kits available has been widened by conversions and what I call scratch-bodging. Anyway, sticking for the moment with the more straightforward end of the spectrum I give you the Bf 109 in various guises.
First up is a Bf 109E - in this case the Revell kit built straight from the box.Next and E (left) and F from one of the Japanese ranges (F-Toys, Wing Club - I forget which). These are rather lovely models and I confess that they bore the very neat paintwork when they left the factory. These simply needed a bit of assembly and some markings added for completion. This type of model make very satisfactory wargames toys and I seem to have acquired rather a lot of them.
Next time - the Bf 110 heavy fighter.
