Hi all,

after a few days working on it, just wanted to share eduards new 109 G-4 made from overtree edition, using some decals from Kagero and Aeromaster.

As you can see its nearing completion, wheels are not glued yet (nor fully weathered) and missing guns, exhaust covers and aerial wire. Before that one last touch with pinpoint washes and final matt coat.

Should be completed by next weekend since I have a short work break coming up.
Sorry for the lame photos















Cheers,
Pedro

Nice work Pedro, particularly the mottling.

HI,

First a big thank you to Oliver, Bob, Spud and Gabriel for their comments, i really appreciate them.

So finished it today, had some mishaps that forced me to repaint one of the yellow wing tips again - found that AK paints are of the peeling type, not good when you need to do a small repair

Used MRP paint for the first time for the RLM 76, now I just want to use this brand...they are as good as that.

took the photos this morning outside taking advantage of a typical summer day, only its autumn

Hope you like it

Very nice Gustav Pedro! I like the way your camo scheme turned out. I plan to use some of the MRP paints on a build I am doing for the PTO Campaign; I hope they are as good as most folks are saying they are.

@Gabriel, thank you mate. was planning to take the photos indoors, but the sunny day was too good to miss...now the photographer on the other hand

@ Ernst, thanks for the feedback on the camo, I feel its one of the finest I've made when compared to the photos of the real thing...scale details aside.
About MRP, fantastic shades and never clog on the airbrush, no diluting needed. I've only used it on the lower blue, the 74/75 being my trustworthy Gunze, but I will buy their entire range in the end. Next will be the 04, 02 and 66. Soon I'll be tacking Hasegawa F6-F3 and already have MRP's 3 camo colors on the bench.

Cheers

Pedro,

Your 109 is really impressive. I like the shading very much.

Thanks for sharing.
