  1. Erik... Unusual and beautiful scheme makes a cool looking 109. It never ceases to amaze me how many different schemes were applied to aircraft. Just when you think there can't be a new one...

  2. I've been wanting to build one of these for a while but I'm scared i'll mess up on the camouflage, same with any other german plane haha

  3. Never seen a camo scheme quite like that one...nice work!

  4. Such consistency. My right index finger is getting sore clicking through to the last star.

  5. I don't like Messerschmitts that much, but these are truly excellent models.

  6. Great scheme on this and all of your 109s!

  7. I love the camo scheme! Great looking 109!
