    Nice Keith , really nice.Your skills go up.:D
    But a few words for the future....As my memo serves aillerons,the rudder and elevators of "short-nose" Wurgers were covered with canvas.So the silver aluminium colour could be seen on metal covered surfaces only.Taking this into consideration you have exaggerated with the weathering slighty. But the effect on the prop blades looks very good.

    But As I said I like the model.A very good job. :thumbright:

    You really have improved beyong all recognition Keith. And you seem to have joined the Wurger lovers here too! Time to do an Eduard Fw 190 perhaps? A Sturmbock?

    Nice. I am trying to weather a plane. What color did you use for the exhaust stains?

    Thanks, I could not tell the color, I was thinking about using a brown tone instead of black. I will try thinning my black more.

    Sssshhh! Keep quiet, I'll put the bribe in the post!


    To be honest I'm rather pleased that this poor old sibling to its more famous relative the Bf 109, is getting a little limelight for once. I'd like to see a few more obscure types also being modelled, outside of the Ju 88 the LW bombers don't seem to popular..

    Nice work Keith! You're getting better with each build, well done mate!
    Paul, hopefully there might be some LW bombers in the next GB, and then there's next year's BoB GB of course....I'm guessing quite a few will be in that one! I'll be doing two I think, if all goes to plan.....

    At least one Bf 110 is a must. For other three entries you have plenty of time to decide... :D
