Nice looking Hawk John.

The 109 is now ready for primer and paint. I cut the canopy open, a bit rough, i still have not mastered cutting open canopies, especially vac form ones.

The 109 is painted up, all with Xtracolor.

Then the decals. these went on well, i was surprised.

Hopefully i'll have this done by the end of the week.

Progressed to the decal stage,  Not impressed with these trumpter decals,  they really need a decal softener and only Walthers works, and just barely.  I'm considering make masks and painting the front half.

And they are flakey, as you can see from the under side of the wing.

Sorry you are having decal issues. Overall I was not really happy with the Trumpeter Talon. I expected a bit more from a modern kit. I used all aftermarket decals, but I'm not overly surprised that they are giving you trouble.

 

The white paint looks great!

John those stripes are looking great on that super gloss white you laid down. Sharp looking jet.

Time to wrap this up. The aircraft was finished earlier in the week. Just a light flory wash and some exhaust stains. The final parts were then added. The canopy is not to brilliant, i struggle to cut canopies, and vac ones more so. Fit isn't brilliant but close enough.

Then spent the week doing the figures and some chocks and got it all on the base.

Thansk for hosting the GB, nice to have a different 109 on the shelves. Please feel free to use a pic of your choice.

Well done, Martin.  I don't envy the pilots who instructed green pilots in the 109 from that back seat.  There can't have been any view whatsoever of the runway.

Thanks John. No, i doubt they could see much, they just had those bulges in the canopy.

Sorry it took so long, I finally got the finished photo up.

 

Nice job, I can't see any issues with the canopy.
