Thanks Ernie!

I've sprayed the yellow panels on the underside.

Once that's dry, I'll start on the upper side camo.

The nice thing about spraying Mr Color is how fast it dries.

I've managed to start on the upper side camo.

It's great to see this kit coming together. I failed this kit twice.

Keep going Carl. :thumbsup2:

Thanks Dale! Maybe third time's the charm?

Ugh, I went down to the bench this morning looking to mask off and spray the second colour for the upper camo. After I finished masking off the paint from yesterday, I realized that I used the wrong colour. The areas I painted were in RLM 75 instead of 76. Or is that the other way around? Or was it supposed to be RLM 74? Anyways, I stripped the masking and I've painted the correct sections of the plane so hopefully will try again tonight.

So here's what the 109 looks like at the moment.

So much for a two tone camo. Thankfully it's easy enough to fix. I'll just spray the RLM 75 where it's supposed to go. 

I hope.

I've sprayed wrong colors before, it happens and you will be fine.

Thanks Ryan! It was more a silly mistake. Not the end of the world. :thumbsup2:

I've now added the RLM 70 squiggles to the fuselage sides.

Ok, I spent the morning masking and painting the various markings on the plane.

The squiggle on the starboard side had part of the white outline lift. I think I might just leave it as weathering. :D

Got some more done on the plane. I installed the cowl MGs.

I then installed the exhausts. I had already assembled and painted them.

Next up was the lower chin rad and the flaps.

I'm not a great fan of Luftwaffe subjects but this is looking really great, it makes me want to dig out mine so you must be doing it right then, looking forward to more.

 

Cheers
