Oh nice, I've got 1 in my stash aswell which I got on Pre-order when it was released with every intention of building it but I haven't got round to it yet! And the Bf109 looks good too and upto your usual high standards, I just can't get used to seeing it in RAF colours and roundels ......... !!

It's a very rewarding kit to build and extremely straight forward. Yes there's a few bits that need fettling, but nothing major. It's always worth having a supply of styrene handy in various shapes though - in case of a missing/molding short.

 

If memory serves this is only the third aircraft I've done with the Prototype/evaluation RAF Colours and the first done by airbrush. It's also only the third* BF109 I've done!

 

In the meantime, here's a few more shots..

 

 

 

 

 

Tomorrow I can finally make a start on Dougal Cool

I thought I saw a light at the end of the tunnel, it was some ###### bringing me another loco!!

Looks Great. The camo colours really 'pop' on the matting surface you have chosen!

 

And Dougal will be my chosen finish too. Will follow your next build with added interest!!

That's the table cloth (which ironically came from Bavaria) on the patio table lol

 

It's been a prep day for Dougal, I had to find all the Big Ed parts I didn't use on the the 224 Squadron Shack. I needed the flap kit & mask set. She'll be post landing with flaps deployed and bomb bay doors closed - the fuselage will be a quick build as a result hopefully.

 

And I've just sorted all the paints out for him too (didn't need the app on my tablet this time to convert Humbrol to Vallejo Model Air)
