    herre is my first attempt at building and painting a model aircraft since i was 10 years old .i dont have an airbrush so all done with brushes.Ihave done the kit straight from the box .I have tried to add some weathering etc but maybe i should learn to walk before i run .Any comment and criticisms will be very welcome

    Not bad Jamierd , taking the time of your break in modelling into consideration.

    For picture resizing I suggest finding and downloading the Irfanview free program.It is a picture browser with many options.The bext size of a shot is 800-830 pixels in width.Of course the resizing has to be done before you upload these photos here

    Thats quite impressive mate.

    Never noticed on the 110 before that the inboard bank of exhaust stubs on each engine point downwards and the outboard stubs point upwards. Was this to reduce exhaust flame glare for the crew ?.

    Got them this time!
    For the first attempt after 30 years, that's pretty darned good mate! OK, yes, maybe a bit more care with the painting, and try to mask the canopy (not easy on this kit - I tried!!), but for brush painting that mottle is not bad at all. Shouldn't be long before you're back in the swing again. Why not grab a kit and join in the Group Builds? You'll get loads of support, help and advice.

    Good work. Your cammo pattern on the wings looks very similar to my Bf109. I didn't attempt any weathering on mine, did you drybrush the leading edges?

    I think it was originally to prevent exhaust gases entering the intakes, Gary. On night fighters this may also have been for the reason you mentioned, of course, although flame damping exhausts were often fitted... Someone else will be able to tell you for sure no doubt.


    Great model by the way mate, especially considering the time lapse! :D
