    First name: Dale

    Scale: 1/48
    Manufacturer: Eduard
    Model Type: Bf 109 G-6
    Aftermarket addons: I may get some brass barrels for the various weapons. EagleCal decals.

    Let's call it a wrap. I really, really enjoyed this build. I am pleased with the overall finish. Practice paid off with this one. I no longer have the abject fear of Luftwaffe schemes that I had when starting this build.

    EDIT: Did I mention that I really liked the EagleCal decals? I was worried about getting the eyes to seat down nicely on the gun swells. A dab of Micro Sol and they snugged down real pretty. Great decals!

    Rochie, PM me and I will send you the set for Kuhlein's bird as I have another set of these decals minus a 7 (my heavy handedness bolluxed one up).

    Oh, far from a great one. You must have meant that for Andy and Wayne.
