    Messerschmitt Bf109 V-7 - Heller 1:72

    Started this model at the Exhibtion.

    There isn't one straight panel line as I scribed these while Paul (Salomone) was explaining the virtues of dental engraving on sacred objects.  How can anyone work under such conditions?!

    It wasn't that good so decided to leave it in 02 overall and as a prototype rather than an operational collection choice.

    Don;t know what you are moaning about. I don;t think that Paul's sermon affected you that much, all the panel lines seem straight and as a matter of fact it looks really nice and i love it. The all over 02 scheme suits it fine and it looks really attractive, well done despite the circumstances.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. The little one looks better in the photos than in real life - believe me.

    Marco, the prop was changed from fixed wooden at least twice to variable pitch both wooden and I think metal for racing events along with the V8 and V10. Your photo is one such event I believe. The model was intended to be the V4 but there are issues with the placement of certain intakes below the wing to which I could not find proper references. There are a couple of issues with V7 as well as probably the leading edge slats should be shorter but I did not bother in the end. This was a pleasure build and I was glad to get this one out of the way. I found a photo of V7 as rolled out (my version) while considering changing from the V4 idea but as usual, I can't find it any more. I was particularly attracted to the half painted prop with the polished wood at both ends.

    Prosit Aldo,

    Be rest assured that during the next exhibition, you will not even be able to start another panel line, as my next sermon will be better off than mr. bean.

    True but the old argument is that they give the model definition.

    Let's not open that can of worms.  It's just like weathering - a lot of it is overdone but...

    Agree & you were the perpetuator of such a phenomenon way back in the late 80's & early 90's with your "shaded/feathered panels" Twisted Evil

    So why are you opting out of scribing if I may ask? I know it is time consuming, but are you ready to compromise the "definition" they give to a model? Are you ready to simulate the effect of shaded/feathered panels which gives that "definition" with spray only?

    Sorry to bug you, but I am no Traitor to modelling lol!

    You misunderstood Ray!  I will not attempt panel lines AT THE EXPO only - I need peace and quiet to scribe decent panel lines and this is not possible with Paul around when he is that particular mood! Capish?

    He is promising to give a better show next year!
