  1. When I saw the "headliner" pic, I figured it was gonna be a diorama of a crashed 109. You sure nailed it, though. Nice.

  2. Egad sir, have you no shame? Just whip 'em like Goering's "hot rolls" - all done to the same standard of excellence.

    Thereby forcing me to continue giving you "10". Bbbooooorrrrrriiiinnnnnggggg! 🙂

  3. A great looking 109, Erik. Excellent work on the camouflage and markings.
    Can't help thinking the reference pic would make an interesting way to show off the model... 🙂

  4. Both 109th good! Great painting and aging!
