    Well then where in the hell is the fun in that?! I do!! Hell I even make engine noises. :lol:

    So you are using a pic(s) to estimate your paint/decal work? If not, I would suggest some neutral grey paint where the crosses reside to crudely simulate their being over painted prior to application of the stars and bars. Would make for a more realistic look, me thinks.

    Keep em comin'!

    Nice one Rob. I don't know for sure, not having seen the reference pics, but if this was the Bf109 'liberated' by the 56th Fighter group, then that could account for the red-coloured control surfaces. The 56th also used a Heinkel III, painted in 'their' colours, and this is the aircraft that now resides in the RAF Museum, Hendon, England.
