Finished this one tonight, after a VERY long battle that lasted right up to the end.  Three different paint schemes on the same model, a new record for me!  I must say, I am getting quite good at stripping down a kit after nearly finishing it and starting over.  This one started out as red 6 of JG 300, on to black 5 of JG 52, and stripped it again to do white 12 of JG 51.  You can see the WIP thread here

 

Here she is as red 6:

And as white 5:

And now, white 12:

Final scheme using decals from Eagle Editions, which performed flawlessly.  Their new sheets printed by Cartograph are good, REALLY good.  Colors by Tamiya using custom mixes, weathering with oils.  No AM parts used, save for scratchbuilt seatbelts, 20mm gun barrels from brass tubing, brake lines from fuse wire.  Thanks for looking in!

Ah Frank, that is a flat-out sensational looking model! Brilliant. You've absolutely nailed a realistic sheen to the paint work too - not to mention some fantastic but subtle weathering. May I publish it on the website?

Excellent work frank - really nice finish and attention to detail - I like the subtle weathering and over all effect.

 

Congrats on sticking through to the end - the result is a great model.

Outstanding, Frank!  Glad to see her finally across the finish line!  I thought this one had "YOU NOT" on the rear control surfaces, or am I thinking of a different aircraft?

p.s.

 

  I thought this one had 'YOU NOT" on the rear control surfaces, or am I thinking of a differenet aircraft?

Also puzzled ...
