Spent some time today applying decals. I used scraps from various EagleCals, Hasegawa, kit  sheet and Microscale sheets. Didn't do the  spinner spiral, tried with 3 different decals, couldn't get any to work. Fuselage stripe i tried a white one from the Promodeller sheet, wouldn't line up vertical. Could try painting it but trying to cover red with white...... Applied enough stencils to keep it interesting.

Enjoying the build now, another coat of gloss tomorrow then on to weathering.

Maybe none of you is old enough to remember the 1/48 ME-109 sold be Aurora in the early '50s.  It was molded in red polystyrene and had a clear plastic stand in lieu of landing gear.   The swastika was in a white circle, and later references to the kit suggested that it was a V14, which apparently was painted red.  

 

You'd have to be REALLY ambitious to make a plausible plane from that kit.

I remember the Me-109, the bright yellow Zero, Black Widow, Flying Boxcar, S2F....... lotsa memories!!! Managed to get some weathering done. Did a panel line wash that didn't quite work out. Did my own mix that i've done many times before, but didn't use enough soap. had to use Tamiya ultra fine abrasives to remove. On the plus side it did polish the paint really smooth.
