    yeah, flat coats are so much easier to dirty up then gloss how do you lose your airbrush, lol

    i think a gloss coat will help a lot. I'd also lighten the egg to make it stand out a bit more....leave the 'lips alone though lol

    thanks for dropping in Alain!
  7. Wo hoo! Its finally time to start this project and with a year to do it I can take my own sweet a55 time to do it, lol. The 110 and its variants have been a fascination of mine for some time now, only to be eclipsed by my obsession with the PBM Mariner. Books, GB's of data etc have been amassed over the years: When John released his G4 conversion, I was one of the first in line shouting "take my money!". He did, I got a set and then waited for the right time to tackle the beast. Now is that time. I had the bits, books and bobs to make it happen, I needed to man up and just do it.

    Thanks guys! I really wanted to keep adding stuff to the 151's, however lack of information, pics and eyesight stopped me lol. I've got some more priming to do before I start actual paint. I've gone and fitted/pinned the FUG220 masts and drilled them out for the master aerials. I need to figure out how in the world Im going to assemble them still.

    the harbor actually looks fun to me, the Prototype Tiger is a unique choice for sure. Im guessing it is in the game?

    thx Henry! Spent some time tonight finished up the MG151 sub assembly started work on the radio set, added a back filler piece and chipped off the un used bottom portion. Added the AIMS PE face(s) as I had a random BF-109 resin pit laying about, the control stick seemed awful close to that of a 110 just shorter...so I lengthened it with the kit part and finished off the wiring that damn MG wiring and resin Electric and Air boxes took WAY more time then they should, but I enjoyed it. The extra work I put into the actual MG's was not worth it as you cant see any of it!

    if you can find any of the 21st Century Pilot figures they are great. Toss a "Wanted" add in the Traders Section, someone will have a figgy for ya.

    got some more work done over the weekend, I will get some pics shot tonight. Elevators and landing gear are done. I started detailing the MG151's and conversion work for them, got the wheels drilled out for the landing gear legs, cut the resin tail wheel and gear free. We had no power on saturday (had to toss and entire fridge of food) so that made modeling a little difficult as it was a balance of letting in light and letting out heat.

    Joachim glad to see you add your build in here! Be sure to check your kit boxing as mine came with dust covers for the guns. Otherwise some metal or styrene tube is an easy way to replicate it. I have some 'off; angle shots of the camera window, but have not come across any proper shots of it. Do you have the camera schematic from the Messerschmit manual, if not I can send that diagram over. Shawn
