  1. Beautifully done model, with a very convincing finish. Just one small observation. Your main landing gear doors are on wrong. They should be switched from side to side. Cheers Randy

    For what it is worth, I painted mine with Xtracolor X352 Japanese Army Grey for the undersides and X115 Field Green FS14097, X101 Earth FS10118 and X129 Dark Grey FS16081 for the top. Pattern was based on artwork in the Kagero Monograph, so I cannot vouch for accurac Cheers Randy

  4. Hi all This is my most recently completed model. It had been languishing in a painted state for a couple of years, so it feels good to get it out of the way. Like my other Tamiya 109s, I only did the following to the model. Fuselage - kit seat replaced with Ultracast seat - antenna wire made from stretched sprue - upper cowl intake opened - cowl gun barrels replaced with Master brass barrels - engine starter crank opening and lift points drilled out - kit propeller and spinner replaced with Ultracast resin parts - exhaust replaced with Ultracast resin exhaust - ETC50 bomb rack and SC50 bombs added from Eduard Bf 109E Wings - wing gun barrels replaced with Master brass barrels - kit wheels replaced with Ultracast resin wheels - tail planes modified to eliminate the anhedral Paint and Decals - airframe painted with Xtracolor X202 Hellblau RLM 65, X201 RLM 02 Grau , X205 Dunklegrun RLM 71 and X213 Gelb RLM04 - all markings are from Aero Master 48-248 Marauding Emils Part 3 - model is weathered with chalk pastels Cheers Randy
  5. Thanks Piotr Cheers Thanks much. Cheers Thank you and I agree. I have 11 Emils in my display case and many more that I want to do. Cheers
  6. Hey Georgie Boy Thanks a lot. Ya, I hope to see you and the guys this year, but I am not optimistic. I have a choice of five 109's to pick from for any show that might be on. They are stacked up like flights over Newfoundland on 9/11. Cheers

  8. Thanks much Gary. I got hooked on this scheme when I saw a colourized image on the web. Cheers Thanks Dave. Sadly, some of the pastel work does not show up in the photos. Cheers
