1/48 Eduard Bf-109 G-2 with oils

December 19, 2021 · in Aviation · · 19 · 1.2K

In the never ending quest for a simple yet fabulous weathering technique I tried some oils on this kit. It is the winter camo scheme of a Bf-109 G-2 stationed in Finland in 1943 and now my only regret is that I should have used a cold shade of grey along the panel lines, not this sepia that warms it up. Next time I`ll nail it.

  1. Speechless about those results, George @georgedamian
    Your paintwork and weathering looks amazing.

  2. Well done George! I think she looks splendid! ?

  3. I agree with John, amazing paint job George

  4. That looks great! I've used a combination of pastels and oils for years, and yours is as good as any I've seen!

  5. I think it looks great, really nice paint work on what looks like is an excellent kit.

  6. Awesome work! Inspiring me to start playing around with oils.

  7. Amazingly good result on that winter camo with the base darker camo showing through. Love it! And I love the panel lines; it looks like dirt collecting on the sheet aluminum joints.

  8. You build came out great looking! Nice looking Bf-109.

  9. Really fine result on the winter overspray effect. I think the sepia shade used with the oil wash is perfect.

  10. I think you "nailed it" this time, George. If you ever do it again, please do a WIP so the rest of us can learn from the master.

  11. Gotta agree with the above, the sepia makes it look used hard and dirty. I don't think it would look near as good if greys were used for what that's worth. In any event this looks awesome

    A superb technique!

  15. Wow - love it! Warm or cold - either way it looks fantastic.

  16. I think it looks great just as it is George. Your blending & camo effects look excellent & really show the hard work these machines were subjected to.

  17. That looks fantastic George! Makes me want to try a WW2 plane sooner rather than later!
