Some extra scratch-built  detail was added to the cockpit. This included seat belts, handles and wiring.

  1. Hi Chris, I just love this one another one of my favourites ! ( the 109f and the 190 were also good ) but the mottling on this is really superb !

    Hey Chris, any chance you could post an under surface shot ?
    Cheers,
    Peter.

  2. Hi Peter, I did have fun with this one as it has been a scheme that I had wanted to do for along time.

    As for any shots of the under surfaces, I don’t think Brett took any, and as this was a commission build, the model is long gone. Sorry.

    Cheers,
    Chris.

  3. I really like the micro-painting on your models, this style of airbrushing brings great realism, your models are the most close to reality I have seen.

  4. Thanks Carlos. What I try to do is to paint the model with the airbrush adjusted to, what I think, is a scale setting. This method does take a little longer but it usually results in a much more realistic finish. From what I’ve seen, it looks like you use a similar method when painting your beautiful models!

    Hope you have a very Happy Christmas.

    Best wishes,
    Chris.

  5. Thanks Chris. You’re right, I’m trying to emulate your scale setting, but I am far from your accuracy, color balance and wheathering. For me it is an honor that you liked any of my models.

    Hope you a Happy New Year and I wish you many new models.
    Best.
    Carlos

  6. Hi Chris,

    I am a follower of your job in scale model. I have paid attention about your technique for chipping. So, I am curious about if you use a pencil or do you paint it with a silver color? I’d like to know, I like a lot your models and I am pending when you publish a new one.

    Thanks,
    Guillermo

    • Sorry I’ve taken so long to answer you Guillermo, but I’ve only just caught up with your question. The answer is that I use a very sharp silver pencil and build the scratches and chipping up gradually.

  7. My absolute favorite scheme on a ‘109! Stunning build, wish mine had turned out as nice as yours. Well done!
