    The kit parts have the large wheel bulges like the k-4. Many of the g-10's had these smaller bulges like the g-6. These barracuda replacements allow you to replicate these planes.

    Sorted the wheel wells Bevan And finished off the belts with a wash and fixed. Dry fitting all the main bits Added some shims to the fuse/wing joint. Yahu instrument panel in place Will add the gunsight later More dry fitting with the Barracuda exhausts

    Oh OK. I use all 3 depending upon what stage in the war or profile? RLM76 up to 44 then either of the other 2 for late stuff according to profiles etc. the more grey blue one is just that and the other a nice rendition of the greeny 'sky' version the discussion is about? Just posted them up here as I thought the discussion was about finding paints to re-create our builds that's all. Cheers

    Cheers Bevan No not glued together yet . The wing spar slots in nicely though the resin openings. Decided this was the best way to get a clean join on the upper wings and wing root/fuselage. Fingers crossed. Thanks for the heads up on the wing insides. Thought I'd sprayed everywhere in there. Not a problem. I'll tackle with gunze buffable metal paint and a hairy stick

    Pit assembled Yahu panel After the simple assembly I filled the dials with clear varnish Pit painted. Added a few extra wires and cables Then a bit of weathering HGW belts Added to check for length Barracuda wing inserts glued and bays sprayed aluminium

    After study of the new book I think your relating to the other japo book. The 109's in here are all G-10/R6 builds. The other book had the U4 variants and none erla builds.

    no probs, I made both options up from the kit so will swap. Just went with what everyone else used in their G10 erla builds.

    Yes. Lots with serial numbers to confirm and photos of the straight edge rather than the half moon. I've yet to decide with one I'll base my scheme on, but given I mask and spray rather than decals it's not a problem.

    Thanks. They'll need a shim of plasicard on either their edge or the fuselage but otherwise spot on. I did get a touch worried when I first tested as they were a bit depressed but after the wheel bays were installed they took the same shape as the outer wing.

    Trying out the Aims gear bay update. Very nice and straightforward. Installed the radiators and checking aligment/fit with the Barracuda wing replacements show no issues. Also getting the pit parts together.

    Blown away, great start.

    Thanks Bevan. Look forward to seeing some of your 109's too. I use your cockpit weathering techniques as standard for my builds.

    And we're off... Trying to 'build' quicker/smarter than previous efforts so starting with the main parts and the associated am. So with this in mind spent a couple of hours removing, cleaning and test fitting the Barracuda wing inserts and Aims new top cowling. Pleased to say both were quick and easy with a great fit.
