:-) After sorting out my airbrush I've been able to spray the mottling on my Bf 109 E-4 Galland, Took to visits to the spray booth and about 45 minutes each time. I have tried to copy, not faithfully but quite closely, the scheme presented on the instructions and I'm pleased with the results. Tomorrow, early, I will apply a couple of coats of Klear, then hopefully later in the day I can start the decalling. I am hoping that tomorrow, or the day after I should finish my E-3. Matt coat was sprayed on that today :-) Ryan I also matt coated my Sea Fury, so thats almost done as well :-)


The 109 E-7 Trop is coming on, I'm just in the process of drawing on the mottle, then a couple of hours in the spray booth. Probably not till Friday though.

:-) Spent the whole day decalling the 109 E-4 Galland, I've got a bad cold and feel like *hi*, everything seems to be a real effort. However it's done :-) Might get the wash on tomorrow but my Heinkell 111 is virtually complete and I want to get that done :-)
I wont post any more pics of this 109 until it's complete, I'm running out of space in my album I'm hoping to post pics of the 111 though, tomorrow! :-)

I've had to remove the in progress shots that I had posted here, in order to get enough room on the MSN site to put up new pics.
Anyway the last of the 3 Amigos is finished so I can claim to have completed this group build. My only regret is that I wasn't able to finish my Ju87B-2 but that will get done later. I will post the finished pics on the RRB :-)
I have really enjoyed this group build and my Corsair and Spitfire, for the other group builds are coming on. :-)
