1/48 Revell/Takara BF109 K
« on: April 05, 2020, 05:13:45 am »

hello my 109 is ready. It was an oldkit from 1979 and nit the best from me. the Ak colors sprayed themselves quite "fussy" the Gunze yellow formed an orange peel under future, the decals crumbled under the Daco softener and the cockpit spray under the Tamiya tape.

Despite the problems you had you've achieved a lovely subtle job on the colour scheme  :bow:

And you'd never know all those things went wrong with it either!   :thumbsup:

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

You had a lot of troubles, but it came out very well!  :thumbsup:
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

I'm sure the Luftwaffe had similar problems - military paint jobs normally favour speed over precision, and most sergeants are all about "Atmospheric conditions , schmatmospheric conditions - git'r done!"

That said, yours looks good.  :)
