    Hey guys heres my attempt at making airfix's 109G-6 a little better

    Scratch built interior and Db-605

    Gonna finish it with most of the cow panels open

    Yet to decide on a scheme on this maybe first thought was Gerhard Barkhorn

    Anyone got some nice schemes they'd like to share?

    You're not supposed to put that filler on with a snow shovel! :)

    Looks like you're getting there!

    The pink stuff is cosmic goo from the Nazi Flying Saucer project designed to give it extra lift.


    No, really. :D

    So if that pink, ex-Nazi Space Programme, extra-lift-giving Cosmic Goo is filler, why have you filled the wheel bays? Apart from that, and I'm sure you've got a good reason, it's looking great Daniel!

    Cheers mate ,I filled them in cause theres bugger all detail in the wheel wells so I'l drill holes to a depth of about 2-3mm where the wheel would go and then sribe grooves for the undercarriage leg .If I didn't there'd just be gaps leading into the wing which would look a tad wrong.Shouldn't look too bad with abit of paint.Lots more sanding/filling to do!:)

    I echo Karl and Wojtek. I now understand what you're doing, but, as Wojtek said, it's much easier to 'box-off' the gaps around the wheel wells and gear-leg bays, using thin plastic sheet, or even card, if you haven't got plastic sheet.
    But bl**dy good work nonetheless!
