Thanks for joining us !!! I think you picked a great plane to represent. I have built the early Jumo powered Hobbycraft kits, and even though they “resemble” the early 109’s, they were still a fun kit to build. I have also built up one of their Bf-109G kits, and I was very impressed with the fit. I don’t think I had to use any filler on that one. I painted the Gustav in RLM 78/79, as shown on the instructions and box top, but I chickened out when it came time to paint the tiny green squiggly lines that were nicely illustrated on the box top. In the end, I like it just as much with the solid tan color on the top side. This is also one of my favorite color schemes on a 109.
Thanks for the compliments on my Tamiya Black 8. It was one of those builds where everything went just perfectly, and I was able to get lucky. After seeing the pictures of your build of the same plane, I also compliment you on your work. It looks fantastic !!!
