Another milestone reached. I can now join the fuselage and wings once the cockpit is in. The stick (control column for the purists and training captains :rofl:) seemed thin compared to photos of the real thing , so I replaced it with a piece of plastic rod. I most likely spend too much time on the cockpit as not much can be seen once closed up. This kit is very good in some places, in other you ask what was Revell thinking.

All closed up and now I need to do some painting. First problem is the greens used by JG54. Every profile and model seem to have their own interpretation. I used one of Claes Sunden's profiles to mix a color from Tamiya enamel. I still need to mix the darker color.

 

I also decided to do reverse masking on the yellow and do that first, The crosses were done on the Sillouette Cutter and sprayed onto the yellow. I will now mask all the yellow areas and the complete the model as usual.

Thanks for the comments Gazzas but after posting the photo I saw a few small bits I had to  touch up. I now looks better.

 

I painted the wings and should have the fuselage painted by tomorrow.

 

I am not sure of the cammo pattern on the JG54 aircraft as like the colors there are numerous interpretations. I do not know if there was anything like a standard pattern.  The best I could come op with on the net was a Russion forum on the Second World War. It depicts some of JG54 pilots eating and a FW 190 in the background facing away. I drew the pattern from this as best I could and used it as a reference. At least the port side of the fuselage I can do according to Claes's profile and it matches the wing pattern where it joins the fuselage.

The wife is visiting with her sisters, so I had a day of un-interruped modeling. The cammo pattern is my own interpretation as every profile has a different interpretation and no photos of the complete plane seems to be available.

I think the scheme looks great, Nick!

 Thanks Ray

I wish I had more info but even Claes Sundin has two completely different profile side views of this aircraft.

Cheers

Nick
