1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4
Picked this up at the local toyshop. One half of the Airfix Dogfight Doubles (the other being the Spitfire Mk I that I am currently working on). Pretty fun kit. Only a couple of small crises during the build – temporarily lost a tail-plane strut and I used general purpose masking tape when I did the top of the fuselage and it left a sticky residual (which luckily came off with eucalyptus oil and didn’t damage the paint job).
I had never tried to do a mottling effect before. I used a small chunk of sponge to apply and I think it came out reasonably well.
Paints were all Humbrol enamel and brush applied.
A yellow-nosed 109 is a vital part of any collection!
