I would think due to the number of sorties flown during the BOB yes, however I would think it would be more on the brown/tan side as the fuel quality was better at that point.

W/O any color pics I'm not 100% sure, may x-ref against BOB '109s?

Thanks Shawn! I added a touch of olive drab to the exhaust staining which I think looks better now.

Great work!

weathering is/can be so subjective it’s sometimes tough to tell how much to do. Some pictures of these aircraft in service seem to show highly polished shiny clean aircraft. I think you’ve found a great balance here!

Thanks Chris! It is easy to overdo things.

I've started working on some of the fiddly bits. I had brass MG barrels but was debating on whether to use them or not. Eventually I decided to swap them.out after seeing Fanes' results. Here's the kit's rear gun:

These are the nose guns in the midst of removing the kit barrels.

I still need to add the sight to the rear gun and finish off the second pair of nose MGs but it's a start.

Next up were the prop blades and spinners. The hubs are made up of a number of parts which are somewhat visible upon completion.

With a coat of paint on everything:

Once I paint the tips of the spinners white, I'll complete their assembly. 

 

I generally prefer to use masks for most large markings when available so I did so here.
