    Messerschmitt Bf 109 F-4 - following the Halinski building instructions...

    Hi folks,

    Right now starting my building report about the Bf 109 F-4 Trop, flown by Hauptmann Hans-Joachim Marseille - called "the Star of Africa".

    The model is a Halinski model, therefore no more words needed. I will do the report in a step by step mode for thoses guys, who intend to build this model, too.

    Due to german law restrictions, the swastica was removed from the pictures.

    Enjoy !

    Like for all Halinski models, a clean and propper building process is nessecary to gain a final success...
