  1. looking great Sepp! about the armour seat, the top part was painted black as well as the radio rack, it is describe in the NAA manuals to be painted that way to avoid sun reflections to interfere with the pilot, cheers p51H seats, also finished int he same manner NAA production line footage
  2. wow, great cockpit job, nice floor effect, you are on a very interesting path with this Mustang, if you want to be a bit more accurate in that cockpit, the radio battery rack which Tamiya calls for green was painted black at the factory, "everything after the seat was painted black in order to avoid sun reflection into the cockpit" here are some footage from NAA and some originally unrestored examples, keep the good modelling!!! cheers
  3. Thank you guys for your words, I'm very glad! a few small more details and she will be finish and will do a photo session with better pics, no more lazy phone pics lol cheers
  4. Hi everyone, so after a couple of weeks left aside did some progress, she is airborne now! cheers
  5. Thanks Mark, I decided to redo the "Udet" emblem, a little better this time, the prop was masked with maskol, yes, It looked strange in the photo cheers thanks Rigor, I'm glad cheers So some work has been done, painted the canopy (which has not the best fit in closed position) some details on the pilot, gears up , and still to do the wavy demarcation on the wedge of the wings, hopping soon to get on the finish line, cheers
  6. Nice subject and great work, here is some interesting reference color pictures, cheers
  7. really nice job on that 190, I suggest you to use this to upload your pictures, cheers https://imgbb.com/
  8. Thanks Mark, I really appreciate it coming from you, your builds have been very inspirational to me! cheers So, a bit more of progress, some chipping at the wing root, some decals, the "Udet" emblem which I made my own decal, and some pigment work.. until next, cheers Antonio
  9. thanks Lothar I'm glad you like it, cheers thanks Kev, yes little by little is getting there and I passed my temptations of scrapping all the paint Had to amputate the feet in order to making him fit, gave him some sunnies and oxygen mask, needs some seatbelts now, cheers
  10. first steps with oils and washes, the landing gears got broken so I'm going for a "in flight" display instead, will have to adjust the pilot in the tiny cockpit! cheers
  11. nice cockpit job, going to follow this one, want to do a spanish one someday, by the way this is the only "known" color picture of Legion Condor 109 showing the grey color, pitty is too blurry and far away! cheers
  12. some more progress , although the Balkenkreuz got too thick and need to be repainted...
  13. thanks Mark, after studying closely the reference pictures I came to the conclusion that the Chevron's body has a solid color (yellow to me) and it was mottled after, also the lower cowling and air intake I will leave in rlm 76 not yellow as some profiles represent based on my observations. cheers
  14. Thanks Gazzas, I'm glad mate! some progress with decals and the "Chevron", more mottling to be added soon... cheers
  15. here you have an Erla 109 looks right and accurate, also in these pics 75 looks too brownish, that it is because the lighting set up I'm using and crappy phone pictures, also the blue background plays an important role, better set up and camera I will use for final pics. more mottling going on, cheers
  16. thanks mate, they sure look alike following the "Erla Camo Pattern" some RLM 74 now, cheers
  17. base coat of 76 and 75. more soon cheers
  18. Gracias Matsu! for the rivets, I first use "Rosie the riveter" tool to mark the rivet position and then I engrave by hand individually with the beading tool, it is a painstaking process but the result is worthy. here is a link for the beading tool :http://umm-usa.com/onlinestore/product_info.php?cPath=21_22&products_id=1322&osCsid=bf122f0d1c501491e4dec444d37fecad about the interior flap colors I'm not 100% sure what color will use, I'll have to study references but yes it can be like 76 or 02. well hope today I'll finish the last minor details left and give her a primer coat and start the painting very very soon, cheers
  19. great job on that cockpit man, could be that the rear of the cockpit was also painted in black, like these? cheers
  20. thank you Chrish, glad you like it! cheers thank you Mark, it's not a repaint, I did spray a sand color over the fuselage to check the rivet work and find imperfections on the surface, it needs proper cleaning also cheers
  21. I'm using Hasegawa's fuselage since the dihedral angle is a bit low so I donated the Revell wings and after some cirugy for the landing gears finally it worked, Cockpit is almost done, needs some touches up here and there, aires resin with Airscale instrument decals were used, fuselage rivets are also done although not showing in all these pics yet, an Erla model wearing their usual factory camo with sawteeth on the wings and round mottling on the fuselage, also looks like it has been extra mottled in the field. Recently I acquired some wood 109 relics which will be using as reference for the colors 74/75/76 , here is the link thread if you are interested in checking it out.

  22. Hello everyone, time to build this 109 up, going to represent this one: Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6/Late (G-14) "Gustav" "Double Chevron" II./JG 3 "Udet" Schiphol, Netherlands, November 1943 Major Kurt-Werner Brändle Kurt-Werner Brändle (19 January 1912 – 3 November 1943) was a German Luftwaffe military aviator during World War II, a fighter ace credited with 180 enemy aircraft shot down in over 700 combat missions. The majority of his victories - 155 - were claimed over the Eastern Front. he was killed in action west of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Following an attack by a group of Martin B-26 Marauders on Schiphol airfield, II. Gruppe scrambled to counter the attack. He was shot down in this aircraft - Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6 (Werknummer 26058) by Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Spitfires under the command of Wing Commander Lloyd Chadburn. His body later washed ashore near Zandvoort on 30 December 1943. Brändle was 31 years old
  23. Thanks Matsu, I would like to see how is your 109 turning out, do you have any links? you could post it also in the section "non-LSP works I guess, cheers
  24. Thanks man, I hope so, I recommend anyone who is doing a 109G to take a look at this interesting article in order to represent the correct camouflage pattern , cheers http://theprofilepaintshop.blogspot.com/2013/10/chosing-correct-wingpattern-for-bf109g-6.html
