Hello all

 

I wanted to do this one for long time and finally decided to go through with it.

I used excellent 1:32 Dragon kit an I must say I find it a bit more enjoyable to build than Eduard offering. Really had no problem building this one. All parts come together quite nice and I was a bit afraid of nose section since I had no intention to build it with engine. All that was in need was some careful positioning and the whole area fit quite nicely.

I decided to use Model Master Acrylic RLM 79 since it look more yellowish than enamel paint from same manufacture. I thinkit gives more realistic look for early Luftwaffe desert Emils, enamel is much more suited for later 109s. RLM78/80 are MM enamel and decals are from Kagero.

Never built the Dragon kit before but have built a couple of Eduards offerings, E1, E4. They build up rather nice as well but have a couple of things to look out for namely the conopy not being wide enough and the lower wing to fuse join at the rear.

 

I think your build turned out excellent, and the scheme and colours look cool.

 

Cheers Bevan

Great job  :thumbsup2: and I am glad you mentioned the difference in the MM RLM 79 between the enamal and acrylic.  Got a couple

of those desert schemes I want to do and I like the way yours looks.

 

Cheers,
