BF109G6 Revell 1/32

Recommended Posts

While waiting for some etch to arrive for the Tamiya 1/48 Uhu, I thought I'd start the Revell 109. Built and painted the cockpit using the Barracuda cast seat with integral belts. Used punched out kit decals for the IP alongside some 1/48 dials and placards from Airscale . Dry brushed with light grey enamel. Washed using Klear, water, black paint mix  and matted down with Tamiya flat clear with a little flat base for an extra Matt finish. Glazed the dials with a drop of Klear.

Nice takeoff. It is good to see that not the whole world is spinning around pre colored Photoetch. Your paintjob gives a nice feel for depth, subtle and tonal balanced.

While I have no problem using coloured etch (I plan to throw a bunch of it at the Uhu), there's something satisfying about painting your own details, especially in the larger scales, and have them turn out half decent. As you say, you retain the depth which etch sometimes flattens out.
