And now for the Dragon Bf 109 Ok My friend changed his mind about which version he wanted something that I am very used to so this is the final choice hehe I think he made a great choice so more fun for me like this one to.
Now overall the fit is great only the top motor deck sits to high and I needed to sand it back so you notice the white filler to get it back in shape the wing roots needed some work.

The canopy fit is great just drop in place.

I absolutely agree, great pictures Johan. Great progress too.

 

PS:-  I hope you don't mind but, I shared your way of getting a convincing brass effect with some of the members here - the clear Tamiya yellow over silver or aluminium.... it was from your bi-plane build over at LSP and I remembered it as being a particularly authentic effect.

Hi well same goes for the dragon build done all the basic paint work now need to do the panel lines this way I work I get a good idea what I want to highlight and specially the motling needs a good preparation when starting this difficult job.
Hope to do the spinner props and more loose parts tomorrow.

Hi now the camera auto focus digital whatever is having trouble to get the mottling in focus.
But I am now ready doing the overall look I did some weathering and the guns smoke durt.
it is a bit glossy used satin clear lacker to thin down the black paint.

That's beautiful. I do love that scheme myself. I really like the weathering to the white wing tips...very convincing.

So did the same work on the Dragon version the decals come from the same manufacturer Cartograf only they made the decals now in matt finish for the rest the same quality super.
Oh did at from DMC the aluminum stencils becose there blank so why not lol the instrutions say that they must be black side walls I will make them a bit greener later on not done yet in that area.
done some weathering but after I closed up the declas I will start the fun work.
