Hi again Doug

I love this project! If ever there was a build that made a mockery of the quantity vs. quality adage, this is it! Proof - you can have both!

I honestly don't know how you do what you do, in the time you do it in! It's just not fair!

All the best

Rowan

That's looking fine, or as the young people say 'sick'.

Hi Doug

Really nice! You'll have to add the new Zvezda Gustav to your collection now - the hanger would be perfect to show it off.

All the best

I am in awe of your work. Your detailing and paint is just great! I bet you cleared out a big portion of your stash with all these builds.

One question. What do you use to mask the scalops along the front of the wings? I saw it on several of the late war 109 and they just look perfect.

Keep up the great work! Cheers
Greg

I just use the blue 3M low tac tape and cut it with a x-acto in the pattern I want.

Hey Rowan
I am excited about the new G from Zvezda, is it out yet? I am going to put F models in the hangar including the Zvezda one.

I am playing with the composition a little bit and trying to decide if I should put three or just two planes in the hangar for repairs.

ok now I am down to the composition phase and need to know what you guys think, should I go with two planes in the hangar or fill it up with the three so it looks like its really busy?
