Huh .... so kinda like a Mustang wing then? Trying eek out that last amount for performance.



Not just the wing, my friend. The fuselage, too. A lot of the early 109G's also had the same treatment.


See... no panel lines!

Remind me again Gaz the spinners were the white lines a decal and if so were they the kits? Cause they look like they were painted on buddy!



Chris,
Thank you!
The spinners had decals which were a little overlong which was helpful because I extended the spinners 1.5mm. It's a nice kit but needs a little love here and there. Because the Cosford 410 had most of it's panel lines puttied and sanded, I did the same with mine.

For some reason the pics have disappeared from Imageshack. I don't know why. I'll have to either reload them if I can find them, or take more.

Gaz



Yes please



OK, Russell... I've put new photos in the previous post. I just got a portable photo booth, so I'm still learning how to improve the lighting.

Cheers!

Possibly part of the whole Photobucket debacle or Gazza's moved them. It was a good looking model though LOL not that that helps you at all Russell.

Hi Everyone,
Calling this one done. It's not a bad kit. I need to build a second one to make up for my errors in the first. Anyway... here are the pictures:

























Thanks for looking! If anyone has any critique, I'm always looking to improve my game.

The Cartograph decals went down easily and were perfectly in register. Unfortunately I don't know many of the stories of the men who flew these machines. So, I went with what I considered the most attractive set of decals.











Thanks for looking!

I love your camo work Gaz! I'm hoping to work up to something like that, this will be a stunner when you are finished.
