  1. Nice work. I like SCW stuff a lot.

  2. Another beauty – love the Legion Condor schemes as well.

  3. A fantastic looking early 109, Reinhard.
    Everything on this build looks perfect.

  4. Fantastic job, Reinhard!
    I love those early 109s!

  5. That better be a clean thumb! This maybe helpful for others to read so I’ll say it here. I only touch my finished models if I have to but when I do I try not to use my fingertips, I’ll use my fingers but higher up where the skin oils are likely to be less.
    Love the ‘109 in these colors, like the Lo-Viz of its day.
    Beautiful work, as always, both of you.

  6. Really superior work.

  7. Another really nice 109 from Spreizhofer Flugzeugwerke!
