wow the markings really make your paint job pop!

 

Thanks Shawn! The only concern is how well they'll match the decals.

Ok, it turns out I painted the props the wrong colour so I had to redo them in the correct one.  Once they were fixed, I did the front part in white as required.

I was having a hard time getting the tips masked so I ended up just dipping them in a puddle of white paint. 

 

Next up were the Quickboost exhausts. The kit ones have the ends moulded solid so AM exhausts seem to be a must for the kit.

Mine broke apart a bit while removing them from their pour blocks. I debated getting some of the new REXx ones but decided to use what I had. Fortunately they were easy enough to install that it wasn't a problem.

I also installed the gear legs at the same time as you can probably tell from the pics.

I definitely agree on the exhausts. They are way better than the kit ones, but the removal from the pour block is quite delicate.

Can't wait to see the finished bird!

 They were actually easier to remove from the pour blocks than I had anticipated. But the bit that holds them together is fragile.

good to know about the resin pipes, I have a set for my other kit

 

Even though they broke apart, they were easy enough to get in place after the fact. I didn't bother gluing them back together, just straight onto the model.

I finally got the nose guns installed.

With the upper nose cover in place.

At the same time, I finally applied the decals.

My first try at a pic with the wings dry fitted was photo bombed.

So here's attempt number 2

So I'm getting closer to the end.

Thanks Håkan! I want going to bother with the nose guns initially but I figured I had them so might as well.

Although Dragon give you the nacelle instruments, I decided to use the Eduard ones. To improve their look a bit, I added a drop of UV gel to each.

They were then glued into the nacelles.

Next up, I finally finished off the wings. I added the MLG doors, rad flaps and the props.

Fur, our cat decided to drop by again so...

With those done, it was time to finally attach the wings permanently.

There's just some final details left to add now so I'm should be done in the next day or so.

Carl, awesome result. The camo scheme is very attractive and wonderfully done. I am impressed by the fit of the wings and nacelles, excellent build. I have four 110 in the stash, I need to do one soon, yours is very inspirational.

 

Cheers,

 

David

Loved following along on your build and can't wait to see the finished project. I keep waffling between entering a Ju88 or a Bf110 in this group build and this build is certainly nudging me towards the 110.

 

Cheers

Thanks David! The fit overall has been really good. There's very little filler on the build. Some along the fuselage seam and that's about it. The nacelles can be fiddly but they ultimately went together fine. I can still remove the upper covers as they're not glued on. I've got a couple more in the stash as well but will probably leave them for a bit.

This was great lesson in building and painting in parallel. Enjoyed immensely.

 

Thanks!

Looks great.  Seeing yours gives me some motivation to get back to work on my 110D-3.

Thanks Bill! Hopefully you do as it would be great to see more of them built.

Thanks Jeff! Funny you mention the Ju88 as that was my other choice as well. I may still do it as I've got the P1 conversion from AiMs. But my next project is already on the bench...
