  1. Your usual excellent model, Reinhard!
    I love the decalling, especially the origianally hand painted letters at the port side of the cockpit.
    Well done!

  2. What a coincidence - I was just sipping my coffee this morning with my magazine about Romanian 109's and thought I will have to make one of the Emils one day soon. . .

    I'll hit "like" star on my way out of here 🙂

  3. Like always looking fantastic, Reinhard.
    Nice to see so many 109's from different air forces.

  4. Another beauty - the yellow nose really goes well with the Romanian markings.

  5. Nice Me109 in one of most colorful marking option from the eastern front.
    Excellent model

  6. An unusual and striking set of colors and markings. That grey green camo color is nice. Is the slogan hand painted? It doesn't look like a decal, having no visible carrier film. If so, it is masterfully done at this scale (even as a decal, actually). Great attention to detail and accuracy in the little fixes mentioned.
