  1. I always found the look of the Bf 109 appealing. It really looks like a hunter, shark like in a way. I love how the spinner blends with the rest of the fuselage, a sunk in cockpit with a bad rear view as if there is only what is in front that matters. The almost organic and aggressive look continues with the paint job. Irregular bands and splotches, breaking up the contours, rather than smooth factory work. Of all the German colour schemes, I like the brown and green ones the best. Reinhard, another stunning job on this one 🙂

  2. Yep, another Spreitzhofer masterpiece!
    A beautiful camo!
