Me 109 G-6 U4 R3 Werknummer 163824

Recommended Posts

The only original painted 109 G6 in existence. Currently in an Australian museum. Captured by US troops in Kassel 1945 after being rebuilt in Munster in 1944. Lots of photos for this one available online.

Great canopy intervention 👍 ...although I have a felling that original green was lighter and both colors more saturated 70 years ago...

CUJO_1970 , it still takes higher tail rudder like G14 tail... to take the title of the first "Late" skin.

Doesn't look right but I don't have the G6-late yet. Once I get it I can fix it. ;)

 

 

 

I think all you would need to do is copy + paste your layers into the G-6 Late. All of the 109's are the same except the E-7.

Nope. The G6 Collectors Aircraft and G14 have externally mapped fuselage sections, unlike all of the other 109's.

I used the G6-late template that is available and then checked my progress by cladding an AI G6-late. The G6-late is therefore equipped with the tall rudder.

 

My biggest problem was that I used a template that wasn't official right at the beginning and then found out that the author had used a modded bump map. I then spent hours fixing things to get back on track. I learned an important lesson from this. Can't understand the point of diverging like this and would recommend sticking to the official templates and if you do go your own way at least make things compatible with the existing official bump-map. There is no point shifting things out of sync without gain. If I had realised that the G6-late template was out so quickly I would have used that from the start. At least both 109's are done now and I'm fixing some minor issues as I use them and will post them in due course. If you find it interesting that's great and keeps myself and other skinners motivated to share. Thank you for the feedback and most of all thanks to those who create the incredible templates! :good:

@SR603-Flowbee awesome! Love 163824, have to visit it and G for George every time I'm in Canberra!

 

Here's the film, light, and sound show that stars George and features 163824.

That was amazing and what a great presentation to keep history alive and to remember those who had to endure the war. 👍

@SR603-Flowbee couldn't agree more, 100% recommend you visit the Australian War Memorial if you're ever in Canberra. 

 

Also, just so you know, I've found that the skins react poorly to field modifications.

 

Both the G-6 and G-6 late look like this when the 30mm cannon is equipped:

The G-6 late also has this problem when MW50 is equipped:

I haven't made any skins for GBS, so I don't know if you can do anything to fix these.

You're right, now that you mention it. It isn't just colouring the shape looks different. More bulbous and circular. Could be the angle though.

Took another shot to compare...

They also need some mottling at the bottom and maybe some shine removed to help them blend but mainly the angle changes their appearance. I notice the dust also has an effect in the photo. Check it again now.
