Jasta 11 WW1 Colour Scheme on a Me Bf 109 F

I've been inspired by a Fantasy profile I found by Bill of http://www.clavework-graphics.co.uk/...aft_start.html

Agreed it's not what the scale police may like to see, but she sure stands out.

For those who may have missed it on the 109 thread.

Rob that plane is beautiful nice job! Couple of questions...I just bought my first airbrush. How do you paint large areas? You can't use an airbrush can you? If so what kind of tip would I buy? Thanks and sorry for the noob questions

G'day Paul,
I spent some $$ on this, I bought Tamiya spray cans for this job. The model was in MANY pieces during the painting. The most time consuming prep work was masking the canopy. About 2 hours to mask, and cut away the tape for about 10 seconds worth of spray. It was worth it for the nice lines (generally) on the canopy frame.

I tried using an airbrush on my customised FMS Zero. It was taking AGES. In the end, I just bit the bullet and got spray cans. To cover large areas, I've found that the spray cans are the best. Note though, I spray over existing paint and decals. Spraying on bare foam can lead to the propellant in the can eating the foam. I test on a foam box normally.

Hope the info was useful.
Rob

Paul, additionally, ALL of my decals come from Callie Graphics.
http://callie-graphics.com/
She does a fantastic job, and is low cost. She did the decals for this model, + provided 8 others I needed for 2 other models for $32USD delivered to my door here in Oz.

Rob, the scale police has no problem with anachronisms like that

Had the Kaiser won, these planes might still have looked like they did
during WWI.

I challenge you (if you have another one roaming about) to make a STEAMPUNK version.

That would be extra awesome.
