Looks great!   You don't see too many 109s in (what I assume is) RLM 76

Thanks Brian,
It is in fact Aeromaster RLM 76. I played with the exposure on my iPhone X after seeing a video on face book, hence the variances. It does look better in the flesh.

Regards,

Various AK washes on the wheel wells, MLG and wheels:

Maketar masks in either kabuki or vinyl for the markings. Unfortunately the “double chevron” is too tall to use so it will be back to decals. I have picked out the masks to be used and marked them with a dot:

Fuselage masks in place and awaiting the upper/lower wings and swastikas:

I hope to get paint on over the weekend.

Welcome back.
Plan b with the “double chevrons” swings into motion. I had a friend over and explained the “too tall” masks. He looked at me, looked at the decals, looked back at me and said, “It’s two parallel arrow heads and you have the decals as a template. Well within your skill set methinks.” Lightbulb moment. Stand by Kenny, there may be a Santa Clause play.

The masks have been placed and the areas for the white ‘weeded’ out. I think I still need to adjust the port underside on a little as it is skied. The rest I am happy with but will check using the photos for fidelity :

Progressing with masking the markings. I learned from my P-51 build where I placed the mask outer mask, sprayed the white then covered the white and sprayed the blue left a sort of white halo around the blue. So this time I figured any mask that had a complete one colour outline, like the white of the swastika, could be done in a similar fashion. Placing the outline in the correct position and spraying the entire interior of the mask. Then replacing the internal pieces so they sat right and then weed out the black. At least that was the theory, right? Those boundaries that were multi coloured needed to be done individually. Have I confused you yet? So it was place mask, weed the required section, paint, wait.....wait....replace masking, weed the next section, paint, wait.....wait....extreme wait and then remove. You get the idea:

Some touch ups here and there but pretty pleased. The black and white looks very stark but will be toned down. The cold hard glare of the camera shows up all the flaws that the naked eye misses. Double chevrons and bar to go:
