So this is my latest attempt. I’ll do proper build logs moving forwards. This kit is lovely just a shame about the builder ? decals however are very fine.

Really brittle. So thin I can see the camouflage colours through the black crosses

I really like how you did the color tones. They are very bright and therefore have a nice faded look!

I feel the need for speed!

My tried and tested method of creating an unrealistic look that I still like ?

@germanairbrushgunner does make me smile all the years I’ve seen arguments about how accurate one paint manufacturers RLM02 was compared to another. And don’t even start on Malta blue ? now we happily apply shading filters and washes all over our authentic paint colours ? I was surprised how light this camouflage looked I’m used to the later Luftwaffe schemes

Little bit of progress on the 109. Ever so slightly over weathered propellor ?
