Did you scribe upper and lower fuselage seam lines along the length.?

 

 

 

Nah, I just glue 109's together then run a little sand paper over the seam line and leave it. It's only a very fine line on the real thing and not always that visible, so it doesn't really need a scribing.

Working on some of the smaller and interior sections. RLM 02 being sprayed i the gear wells and on the under carriage legs also inside the radiator flaps. I also painted the prop and spinner. The white is meant to be a bit untidy along with the overspray on the pro blade which was there on the aircraft.

Looking great!

Nicer weather? I'll trade you some of our -41C for some of your +40C...?

Maybe we can get a nice medium??

 

I can deal with a bit of heat, but that kinda cold would see me not get out of bed all winter.

Masking up the rudder.

Painting the fuselage. I went for RLM 75 and 83 for the fuselage.

I painted the tail with a brush, RLM 81 brown with 83 green irregular splotches. Gloss is also on, just awaiting things to dry before some decals and I need to apply the painted out 4 on the fuselage.

With the gloss on and now dry, it's onto the decals. I used most of them from the box, but the black under surface markings were from another kit, along with the double chevron, which I had to cut down a little to fit.

However I ran into a bit of a problem; I had no III gruppe bar, so after scouring all my decals including unbuilt kits, I decided to have a go at making a mask. 4 hours and I'm not sure how many tries, I got 1 half decent one.

Not too bad. Not perfect but it will do.
