  1. Hooo! effects are real impressive, the 109 is your preference for what I see, I thought if these planes in the desert operavan had some wear on the wings? by the sun and dry climate?

    congratulations
    Ben

  2. You are right again Ben, but the photos of this plane show that the paint on the upper wings and fuselage was in pretty good condition. For some reason the upper wing crosses were badly worn. Not really sure why this was.

    Cheers,
    Chris

  3. Chris- Amazing work as usual. Have been working on the Eduard 1/32 Bf-109 E3 for 80th anniversary of Battle of Britain- not an easy kit! Anyways, just picked up the Hasegawa 1/32 Bf-109 F4. Do you recall the Desert exterior colors you used? Thanks!

  4. Chris, I also have a question regarding to this desert scheme. Do you remember how you painted the demarcation line between upper and lower surfaces (both on the wing’s leading edge and the fuselage side)? Was it freehand or using some kind of masking (loose masking maybe)? They look quite soft, but on the other hand they are so damn straight!
    Thanks, Tomasz

    • Tomasz the wing leading edge was sprayed freehand but the fuselage was done slightly differently. To give me a straight line to follow I first masked the demarcation line with Tamiya tape and then very lightly sprayed it with the upper surface colour. When the tape was removed it left me with a very faint but very straight line which I used as a guide to then freehand spray the heavier coat of the same colour. Doing it this way gave me the straight but tight soft edge.
      Hope this explains it.
      Cheers,
      Chris.
