Hi all - this is the Eduard E-3 - a very nice kit if a little tricky in places - I did make a few little little mistakes during the construction but nothing I wasn't able to sand and fill my way out of.  I replaced the gun barrels with some turned brass aftermarket but otherwise it was all out of the box - though being a profipack, it came with masks and some PE. Painted with Mr Color Lacquers and weathered with Mig Washes and Oil paint - it was an enjoyable build. Battle of Britain scheme.

This build kind of brings me full circle - the first model I posted in Britmodeller was a 109E - posted just under 2 years ago.  I still love that little E but this is certainly a nice upgrade. My skill level has improved since then and hopefully will continue to improve, 2 years in and I feel like I've just touched the tip of the iceburg :)

 

Thanks for looking :)

Great modelling man! Well done! Perfectly balanced finish for my taste. 

This is one of the most interesting Emil paint schemes I've seen. 

 

Excellent! 

 

Best, 

Nikola

As others have said, this is a beauty.  I have this kit and wasn't taken by the white nosed version, but you've really done a great job of it.  Thanks for sharing it.

Thanks Sam - I've been quite busy with work so haven't done any WIP's in a while - still doing lots of sanity modelling though :)

Thanks Nikola - I thought so too - a bit different to usual yellow nose.

Thanks Jack - I was worried about weathering that white nose and some of the effects I tried here didn't really come out but I was pleased overall.
