1/48 Messerschmitt Bf 110 G

Recommended Posts

One of those models started years ago and left part built waiting for the inspiration to complete.

It's the Revell kit with after market decals (I lost the kit ones!), goes together well enough and has enough detail for 1/48. I plucked up the courage to attempt the 'squiggle' colour scheme which was applied free hand with a fine line aibrush.

That's a really impressive airbrush job. Kudos there. :thumbsup2:

I've had one of these since it was first released, but that squiggle paintwork has always put me off starting it.

:goodjob:

Nice build, and that camo came out really well. You should be chuffed with that!

Wow, that's a lovely paint scheme. As well as the amazing freehand squiggles, love the rust effect on the exhausts too :)

I've build 3 of these kits, one with the Cutting Edge nacelles and spinners, another with the Verlinden flaps and leading edge slats; I'm obviously a fan but they do benefit from after-market turned brass antennae. Yours is an excellent build and as mentioned above, your squiggle finish is simply stunning!!! Many congratulations.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

Exhaust staining was first applied with some thinned Tamiya smoke spayed onback across the wings, heavily thinned using multiple layers to build up the tone, then pastel dust was applied with a brush to deepen the centre of each stained area

After market antennae woud really help with this model buy I wanted to keep it out of the box rather than spend on extras.

I can only imagine how long that must have taken, however long, it looks flawless I say, nice one.

That's excellent - the squiggles are superb! Bet you're pleased you plucked up that courage now!

Thanks for sharing particularly as I have a couple of these in the stash and been a little unsure of how they look shape-wise - no such concerns now that they can look briilliant.

cheers
