[Kit Review] - Sweet 1/144 - Bf 109f-4 Tropical "Star of Africa" -

New sweet kit of the week, the WW2 German Bf 109f-4 in Africa corp tropical or desert paint scheme.
Really interesting thing about this kit is that it centers on the "Star of Africa" Hans-Joachim Marseille who has a confirmed 158 victories. Here's his wikipedia post as it s a interesting read

The kit comes with decals in 1/144, 1/72 and 1/48 for Marseilles personal Kubelwagen "OTTO", going to have to go find one in 1/144 and make a small diorama me thinks.


Usual excellent instructions with 1/1 painting guide of the 1/144 aircraft, luckily not a massive difference in paint schemes so no hard choice.


Easy to follow instructions even though there lots of Japanese texts.


Fantastic detail which ive come to expect from sweet.

This is one of those kits im inching to get started, especially as the subject is very interesting.
