    That darn revell Bf 109G-10!

    I'll take a break from this model now. Next step is to mount the thing on a display plaque, but I have no idea when I'll get around to do that. Here are the latest photos. The tail wheel got some dust coloured oil wash. Masking tape was removed from the canopy. Some unwanted paint was removed too, with white spirit. Not the ideal solvent but the alternative, rubbing alcohol, would have made a mess of the Future on the canopy.

    Late War RLM usage of 81/82, etc.

    I have been wondering how much paint, measured in litres, that was actually needed per plane.

    You mean those machines used for high altitude fighting and in the Night fighter units?

    What intrigues me, among many things, is that it appears to exist both a true mono colour scheme, and one almost - but - probably - not - after - careful - examination - of - photos. (I hope the Germans will dig up some documents on that!) My thinking is that both where done at the factory. It simply is no logic to the idea of such big paint jobs being done at unit level. If they wanted extra cover on the ground there where camo netting to use, tree lines to disperse the aircrafts to, and simple overspraying of the blue gray sides with anything at hand. Speaking of the later we got remarkably neat paint jobs.

    Yeah, Luftwaffe cold are If a contractor lacked a particular paint would he order something non-standard, rather than just paint a few parts Mono colour until normal applies arrived?

    83 is likely a blue colour according to research by Ullman. What we may have instead is two variations each of colours 81 and 82.
  9. When you need a Loupe to build and appreciate a kit then you are taking the hobby to extreme end. Myself I don't bother with that aspect. Improving my technique is my goal.
  10. It would be a G-6 for sure because it seems Typical tamiya habit of doing the vanilla versions. What's so special about the G-6? Most produced variant that's all. Otoh a G-14 has the potential of making G-6, G-6/AS, G-14, G-14/AS, G-10 and maybe G-5 variants.

    Gotta applaud a modeller who buys a dozen kits and proceed to build them ALL!

    About ten inches long by my calculation? Guess it is one of those Pocket battle ships...

    You got any idea where you read that? Nvm. On second thoughts I think you mean the center of the crosses were painted gray rather than black. I have seen information on that in the JaPo books.

    More oil wash was added today. I don't know if that is enough, as in dirty enough for realism, but it is time to move on. I glued the wheels and covers in place using milliput. Next I will glue back the exhausts and spinner.

    I suspect no spokes would look best. That purple Primer, is that a use of colour theory?
