  1. A very interesting camo, Reinhard, perfectly executed.

  2. Looks great as always. That oversprayed camo looks neat. I like the difference from the straight-edged typical look.

  3. Is it possible you and your dad have outproduced Messerschmitt? 🙂

    Keep ’em coming.

  4. Very good Reini! I love that over-sprayed camo too! 🙂

  5. Great build, Reinhard.
    Never new that there were so many variants in schemes.
    This one also looks perfect.
