  1. Excellent build and fantastic camo, Reinhard.
    Thanks for the pilot's short story!

  2. Another beautiful 109. How many 109's are in your collection?

  3. I love these out of the ordinary paint schemes you guys keep finding.

  4. Another beauty, Reinhard.

  5. I'm with Tom on the paint scheme - really eye-catching - love the black band and then the subtly of the blue markings. Another great 109. (100 - really?)
