Dragon Bf 110 C-7

Ok, so after being sick for most of last week, I've finally made it back to the workbench. After painting the prop blades and spinners, I realized I'd used the wrong colour. I'd used RLM 66 instead of 70 so I repainted them. At the same time, I did the front parts in white.

Looking good!  The QB exhausts are just about mandatory for this one.

Thanks Mike! With the kit ones being solid, I'd say you're right on needing AM exhasts for the kit.

Looking great, I like the newish, but used look, not easy to achieve. New is relatively easy, abused too, but the way you did it is the hard way. Me like.

Cheers Rob

Thanms Rob! I'm definitely in the lightly used category when it comes to weathering.

Nice work on the exhausts and they sure look good. Wrong color and stripping paint? Can't remember a build in the past few years I havcen't been on that path.

The redo paint work looks flawless

Keep 'em comin

Yup, they weren't the only parts on this either. I did the wheelbays the wrong colour too and had to fix those as well. Glad it's sorted though.

With the pic of your furry predator I wonder that there is only one hair in your splendid paintjob. The good thing on my little dog is that he is more earthbound :D.
Love your mouth watering build. Until I followed it, I never thought about building a 110, but that might change...

Cheers Rob

Looking amazing Carl, I guess Harvey is ripping his hair out for selling his 110 :)

Thanks Martin! As for Harv selling his with the  AiMs G-4 conversion, it's not an easy one so I can't blame him there. I've got the same one in the stash still and it's daunting. Which is only confirmed by some of the build threads.

Rob, I sometimes wonder the same thing. Actually I did end up with one of her hairs stuck in my clear coat so there was a quick touchup needed.

So although Dragon gives you the instrument panels for the nacelles, they're not really going to be visible. So I used the ones from Eduard on my PE set. I added a drop of clear UV gel to each dial to replicate the glass.

Here they are installed on the nacelles.

Next up, I installed the MLG doors and props.

More cameos by our cat. This is something new for her. She's getting some impeccable timing.

AK sprays better than Gunze Mr. Color?  I’m sold on that stuff, so it’ll take much convincing.

It sprays the same as Gunze in my view. Same approach to thinning it and cleaning up too.

Carl, that’s looking stunning, man. Good grief it’s gorgeous

Thanks Ernie! Now that I know I can pull off these squiggly line camo schemes, I might try building the He219 in my stash.
