    Bit of a slow start on this GB for me but things have been manic at work lately. I hope to get at least one more 109 in but time will tell, would rather make a good job of this one than do a rush job on both.

    Looking very nice. Is that for the BOB Group Build? If yes , the main title should be corrected.

    Nice! There's certainly going to be some variety just in the '109s. There's some good stuff coming out, but still light on the bombers so far.

    Cool paint scheme. I'll be doing the exact one eventually. I'll be interested to see how this one comes out.

    White looks sooo cool on a 109. Like that "Yellow 12" from JG 26 thats around everywhere.

    Couple of progress pics. Resin sidewalls in, these had to be glued to the fuselage sides as they both snapped when being trimmed up hopefully this won't show up too much when the fuselage is joined. I have also trimmed back the armor from the kit to allow the resin replacement to fit. Seat and floor painted and weathered, just have to paint the harness, although some fool has glued a joystick in the way.

    Looking good Lewis. It might be the lighting, but the cockpit looks a bit on the green side.
