Thanks and don't be afraid of your age, I remember the old Hawk
1/48 U-2. Not to mention my first Me 109, the good old Monogram 1/48 kit molded in shiny dark green and black plastic.---John

Hi John

Nice start. You've got some good detail there in the cockpit.

I remember this kit fondly from when it first came out (oops! showing my age there...). That colour scheme should look great.

All the best

Rowan

I just started this last month and am almost ready to paint. I am using aftermarket decals, Eagle Cals, for Eric Hartmann's Bf 109 G-6 yellow 1, wrk no. 166221.I had a fellow modeler donate an Erla canopy as the kit comes with the earl style.---John
