    It is difficult to find any faults with these latest Airfix kits. Airfix has reinvented them selves with these new kits. You did an amazing job on this one. Well done!

  3. Fine work with the hairy sticks Gregor.
    And as Morne said Airfix have definitley upped the anti with their latest releases.

  4. Gregor, great brushwork, good looking BoB ME!

  5. Brush Painted..?! You, sir, are an artist. Very nice results.

  6. Brush painted? Wow! Very nice!

  7. Very nicely done, and from a fellow brush-painter, I can appreciate the results you achieved on the finish!

    I think the E is my favorite 109 - not sure why, but it just represents to me the "classic" 109.

  8. Nice looking 109,Gregor. I have to admit, I wouldn't even think of doing that paint scheme by brush. Well done.

  9. Brush painted !... Just superb, Gregor.
