    Very close, but I'm a sucker for blue eyes :oops: .
    [​IMG]

    Actually it was a toss up but I liked the color on the early version more plus the eyes yellow flashes make a it much more appealing than the standard grey 109's of that era.

    Does anyone have any pictures or color reference material for the engine bays of the 109G's. I have a lot of pictures of the cockpits such but hardly anything on the engines. The instructions are okey but....

    Cheers Switch

    Opps forgot to add the picture...All done now.

    Hi guys, back again. The Photo etch seat belts i was after have arrived and i now have enough reference material to get started properly. For some reason this kit is full of ejector pin marks si the putty has been getting a workout.

    [​IMG]
    The engine was painted with a cutom mix of flat black and a slight amount of silver to make it just metallic. The other metallic colours are Gunze 'Mr Color' paints.

    There are 14 ejector pin marks in the cockpit area that needed to be filled, YUK.

    I have painted behind the clear dash and also on the front.

    The progress so far.

    Any suggestions, tips etc would be appreciated.

    Cheers Switcha

    Switcha that is real nice man!

    Some very light drybrushing with some silver or my preference, Tamiya Sky Grey over the raised cockpit details to bring out and highlight some detail....

    Undoubtedly some of drybrushing and a subtle wash would make the cockpit much more real.Good work Switcha.:D

    The eyes were getting a little fuzzy last night for drybrushing but I agree.
    The black boxes on the floor cockpit wall are being painted with tire black and then the switches are going gloss black but I will then hit them with a light coat of grey to pop the details. For chips scratches I'm using Vallejo Gunmetal and also Vallejo's for the washes.

    Cheers Switch
