thank you taxtp,theuns, simpilot34,mm and jack. I used model masters enamels with tamiya black wash. I did some exhaust stains since the plane was so new in the war I shouldnt weather it to much. but after watching raiders of the lost ark it bit me to finish it. now i can work on my 58 chevy and gloster meteor f.1 on the raf gb.

Nick, that Pfeil looks incredible! The rlm 83/84 combo is perfect. I loved building mine a few years ago. I really really had to weight that nose down! Didn't put enough in and had to shove a few heavy gauge brass wires in the nose before putting the nose nacelle and prop on! You mentioned using tamiya washes for weathering. Did you encounter any issues since your paint layer was enamel? I've been curious for years how to execute pin washes if one uses model master or humbrol enamels
