    MARCO!! I FINISHED - FINAL PICS!

    Post  Noel Petroni on Sat Nov 02, 2013 3:20 pm

    Marco, for the sake of experiment.......... let's do this!

    I started mine..... very straight forward.. on add-on's, no accuracy in decals paint or any other. Just a fun build!  OK?

    To all of you guys! sunny 
    You know something? When I build an AVF..... although it's a hobby and a relaxing pastime .... without knowing I'll be stressing myselF.  WHY??? Because I want to achieve a good standard so I battle against my current skills..... I try hard to research and spend a lot of time looking and reading to understand which unit fought where and what markings where used in that year, during that battle, in that month. What colour scheme was used and how am I going to tackle the weathering and chipping adn the terrain..... OMG.. what a stress!!! affraid 

    So I'm building planes...... a quick build and a fast paint job...... just to see something done! ekk.... vendigazioni! and I'm really enjoying it!!

    So now let me introduce you to my ME 109





    QUESTION:  Can anyone give me a colour scheme of a 109 that had the Yellow nose ?

    I stand to be corrected but I think that the only schemes for a completely yellow nose are those for 109 E's

    Marco... I like the colour plates.

    I would opt for the middle one. What colours are those?

    Yellow nose and tail and the rest?

    Is there the top wing picture?

    Marco.... you are excused because the instruction are of a 1/72 ME Airfix and the plane is the 1/48 Revell Bf 109 G-10.

    Issa.... there are no swastika on the decal sheet!!! Xigifiri din! Revell forgot to make them or Europe are a bunch of babies and are afraid of a swastika!

    What am I suppose to do?

    Thanks Marco,

    I wish to go for the Middle colour plate.

    Question:
    a) How is the camo on the wings?
    b) Can you guide me for the colours. You have to explain them, for example Blue-Grey etc.
    c) I'll be using Vallejo Air
    d) Where do I start to airbrush a plane? Underside first?
