Ok all you patient folks out there, clear the decks and start working on your kits!

Sorry if I put this up late, but had been outta town over the weekend, to get my wife back from her hometown. Came back yesterday night late, and couldn't announce the start earlier.

Anyway, I'm sure most of you would have started, announcement or not ;P!!

So, on your marks, get set and go! BTW, don't forget to post in-progress pics of your models as we go along, and remember : The name of the game is not competition, but co-opetition. That means, we all pitch in to help with other's efforts. References, pictures, techniques... all count, and I'd like to see help pouring in for any person who needs it!

Cheerio.. Off I go to my Ju-88......(singing 'We didn't start the fire'......)

Oh one more thing... Please post your Q's and updates in the threads created for the individual aircraft earlier. That way, any person making a particular plane just needs to go and check up in that thread, instead of hunting for individual posts...

BTW, here is a link to a site chockfull of images about the Luftwaffe:

Ok! So I'll start my BF109 But I'm in doubt about a Promodeler or a Revell AG one!
I'll tell you later what I picked.

Parts are now away from the sprues for my 109 E4, but gosh... I forgot to get myself some RLM66 for the cockpit... It will have to wait for next weekend !

penpen, the cockpits on 109 E models were painted in RLM 02, not RLM 66.

Is RLM 02 also the correct color for the 109 B-2 cockpits?

Thanks
