Great work Doug, keep'em comin' :-) !

Two oldies that I remembers as great kits are the Airfix 1/48 -F and the Revell/Monogram 1/48 G-10, both are simple but accurate builds.

After all this practice, you must now be an elite mottler!

Thanks Magnus
Ha Ha like the pun, but truthfully I am learning a lot about mottling. You are correct about the Revell 109 G10 it is on my bench and is the next one I will do and it is my favorite so far. I did the Airfix F a long time ago but sadly I do not have one of those to compare at this time, I will continue to seek it as I build the ones that I now have.

Regards
Doug

paint on the Revell/ICM kit, it is painted in the same group (JG 53 Pic A's) as the Hobbyboss F as it will be in a diorama with it eventually.

the old Revell 109 G 10, this is one of my favorite kits to build and brings back a lot of good memories.

That's one amazing production rate Doug :-) !

May I ask what paints you use? And do you mix them or are they straight-from-the-bottle?

Thanks Magnus
I use Tamiya paint for everything but the clear stuff, I use Pledge for the clear gloss and Testors flat lacquer for the flat.

With the number of 109 kits out there, and likely be released in the future, you are going to be a busy guy. But this is a good thing for all of us. We get info and to look at a beautiful array of 109's. And you end up with a beautiful array of 109's

Yes my favorite so far is the Revell G 10. I think it is a beautiful model even though it is the oldest one I have built so far.
