Oh they didn't cut the Swastika corner off the decals..............to replicate the aircraft, in my opinion they are essential.........though I accept some people find them totally offensive (and rightly so).

Agreed that camo is going to be a challenge.  Even in 1/48 it would be hard enough.  Good luck with this build, and keep it well away from any hounds!

I was thinking to use laquers for the camo, as I understand it doesn't dry on needle so can use the lock mechanism on Evolution AB so as to have constant flow set. seems a lot better than acrylics

I'm going with this option, as a kid (about 9) a class mate brought a lovely Heinkel 111 into school and the bombs on its underbelly always stuck in my memory

This is a very nice kit. I like the colors too. Hope you will have a lot of fun. Give the dogs big bones, maybe they will be less interested in modeling.

Myself have to pay attention to the dogs... They LOVE the paper towels I use to clean the brushes and more...Have more trouble with one of my cats. He likes to play with tiny parts, or rubber tires,  throw them down of my workbench and run all over the house playing soccer. But I do love them and honestly I do not have much that trouble.

I bought some Vallejo sets for a Me 109 I built. Colours don't agree with other models I've seen, but who cares. This is my build and I'll use what I have.

AK have the true colour mixes references, other than that its early colour photographs, which are terrible for colour shifting..............so its my way IMG_4265[1].jpg

Alain,

I love my dogs, normally they are great. Why I left modelling stuff out whilst went to toilet.

But Max suprised me attacking my kit

Very nice color kit. I'm so confused when it's time to choose the color to paint my kit. So I go with the one I like. I'm not so attached to the historical purposes... Of course I'll try to follow the instruction sheets, but It's more a guess when comes the time to pick a color bottle on my shelf. Who care's ... [tongue][tongue][tongue]

I have those same paint sets.  In fact I bought the whole range of Vallejo air sets, at least all the WWII ones, last year, when I decided to return to modelling.

Not off to a good start, wing trailing edge doesn't just meet up, it has an interlock with main trail edge on lower part. The fit was atrocious with a massive step on upperside of the wing..........5-10 mins of sanding later and its an acceptable fit

I use to like Eduard but going off them very fast
