Eduard 1/144 Me 109 G-2 - Part 5

Painting (mis)adventures
Hmmm, I'm not really sure how this is going. I've had a few disasters with this one along the way.

First lesson - trying to get nice blended effects at 1/144 is NOT for a novice and certainly not for a first model at this scale (I cocked that up). On the other hand I'm pleased with the splinter camo pattern.

Anyway, I have a lot of tidying up to do.

The scary bit is the next stage where I am supposed to tone down the whole scheme with a subtle coating of grey, so everything looks weathered and more subdued. Like this...

Ah well, onwards and upwards!


  1. I've just started painting aircraft in 1/144 scale too, and it is quite tricky! Your efforts look very good, and I look forward to seeing the end results - and seeing if I can use your methods to make my aircraft look better!


    1. Cheers Uncle Brian! I am indeed finding this hard, mainly because of the camo scheme I am trying to replicate. Were this a ordinary hard edged scheme - like the JU-88 which I will be doing next - I think I would have managed better.

      I maybe wouldn't take my experiments as anything more than perhaps what NOT to do! :)

      But I am still tinkering with this and let's see if I can pull off a 'save'.
