So finally I pulled myself together and finished the last bits of this model. Eduard 1/32 Bf109E-1 with AlleyCat D conversion to do the JG102 plane of Hannes Gentzen - the first ace of WWII

 

I had a little going back and forth with the camo with regards to the contrast between the two greens (see wip thread). Too much to start with, but I find it to be too little in the end. Pretty hard to see that it's two tone, but then again so was the real thing

 

The kit is good, not fantastic, but ok. The conversion could not be better. AlleyCat is heartily recommended. Decals is a mix of kit, conversion and my spares box

VERY nice Thomas!!

 

 I take it that last pic just looks like the canopy is unpainted? Looks like the inside of the canopy is NMF or is that just a trick of light?

I can see what you mean - it must be a reflection of the light - it is RLM66 actually

Do you mean photos of the real aircraft? I tend not to publish those in articles for copyright reasons.
