Hey LA, as said, that build is a real eye catcher.  Hats off for a unique scheme that came off fantastically!!  Bow Down

Dwayne or Dman or just D.  All comments are welcome on my builds.

Gentlemen,

Here are some more pictures of the Eduard 109G-6 that I have been working on.  There has been a lot done since I last updated you all.  I have completed the build, primed and painted and have begun to work on a base for the kit.  All in all it is a good kit, I think that the errors are mostly of my own creation.  I used mission model paints for the first time, and found them to be very easy to use, but I still suffered from the typical arcylic tip dry issues.

Here are the photos:

I will post pictures of the completed project in the next few days.

 

Thanks for an awesome group build!

Nice work Matt, despite the tip issues you are showing great control with the preshading. Really like the control on the mottling coming down the side of the fuselage. looking forward to seeing it with the markings on.

Had some time to take some better photos today, but the weather wasn't that great - it was bucketing down - so I had to take the photos inside.

Didn't start well, I opened up the display case to find this:

Got that fixed and started taking photos.

Hey Rooster, thanks so much for hosting this GB, you gave me the chance to do a build that has been in the back of my mind for a few years since I did a Mustang racer.

There have been a lot of great kits come out of this GB it has been a lot of fun and very informative watching them all develop. Great work everyone!

Lostagain: The idea, execution and final result are all absolutely marvelous!!! Both for the Focke-Wulf and the beetle. Awesome glossy finishing! Many cheers and Jagermeisster shots for you Beer.

It is also quite possible that this butcher bird wore ball bearings or shock absorbers from ‘Sachs’ (then based in Schweinfurt), ‘Bosch’ ignition or fuel pump and was maintained with the aid of ‘Bilstein’ jacks, so the sponsor labels have a degree of historical accuracy Smile

Blkhwkmatt: very nice preshading and painting. Also, this kit seems really good, I think I will get myself a Bf-109 model from Eduard sometime.

I love the Jager theme!  Extremely unique and well executed idea!

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Zvezda, good to see all my exhaustive research (!) on likely sponsors has not gone unnoticed...

I would think that the first photo would do great for the front if you are still inclined to add it to the finished list.

Thanks for the great GB and I enjoyed seeing all the great builds come together.
