    Marco........ the RLM 75 of Vallejo is a rather dark grey. .... the one I use for German tanks as Panzer Grey. ......... is this a good grey or it has to be lighter?

    Thanks Ray!

    If I continue doing this.... next 1:48 scale plane (probably a spit) will be more taken care of and I'll try to built it to an accurate standard.

    If that happens (and I hope it does Smile) than you would have made a complete circle of going back to your roots cheers

    MaRCo would be the MOST delighted I'm sure Evil or Very Mad

    Prosit Noel, nice work. A bit overdone on the chipping on the fuselage not the wings but i like it. Probably Marco will find a million and one flaws but as a fun build, it looks great, well done, looking forward to the Spitfire with the touching story attached, nearly made me cry this morning. Qiesa xi telenovela kienet l-istorja. Go get them Noel!!

    Thanks Brian! I know what sparked the interest to build planes, it was my kids and wanting to build a model with them. I don't know what aroused the fire inside me to have pleasure in buying planes and look forward to building them!!!

    My Spitfire story...... it's something that remained in my mind.

    OK.... before I start having tears in my eyes........ I can declare the ME 109 Finished!

    Enjoyed building it and it is my very first complete 1:48 scale aircraft !! It will go in the kids room hanging from the ceiling and I'll post some photos as soon as their room is ready.... in the near future.
