Dragon/ AIMS 1/32 Messerschmitt BF110 G-4 2Z+GB Stab 1./NJG6..........Finished!!

Recommended Posts

I don't know how the mottle was applied in the factory on German aircraft but I'd bet that there wasn't a template (as used by the RAF for standardisation). That being said I'd imagine it was "freehanded" and down, within certain limits, to the bloke with the paint gun in his hand. It looks right to my eyes, and if you're happy with it then leave it as is! :)  Onwards and upwards!

It looks great! I sure wouldn't mess with it; I think it is one of those things where if you try and adjust or touch up it will never be the exactly the same and just turn out looking worse.

Thank you all for your comments and suggestions on the mottling work I posted over the weekend as it has been very helpful. It was a pretty large area to cover and keep consistent and after I iniyialy thought about adjusting/ adding to it I have taken everyones advice and left well alone as I will surely ruin it!  So next up I masked and painted the one black lower wing,.

Difficult to see in the pictures but its not actually black with various Tamiya colours used, pretty happy how it came out in the end, here are the colours I used all applied in lots of very thin layers.

Time to get the Makatar masks out and spray the national insignia, I will be using the AIMS supplied decals for stencils and serial codes.

 

Regards. Andy
