I will post the obligatory pics of the kit later. Firstly here´s my plan for the livery.

Messerschmitt BF109-E3/7 JG 53. France, beginning of September 1940.

Thank you Chris. Glad to say that I´ve made a start. It´s all been done before. The office is coated dark grey, but with a green tint. All in all very similar to the Bf109e-8.

The office coming quickly together. Weathered and pin washed with black and rusty colours.

Gaining some more flying hours on the Emil now. Change of plans on the colour scheme. I´m going to use the same idea with the red band around cowling. But the camouflage will have a different twist, using medium sea grey and panzer grey for the splinter sections and medium grey mottling on the cowling and the fuselage.

Fuselage and wings assembled.
Image

Medium grey with a hint off mustard yellow.
Image

Simple masking procedure for the splinter camo.

First half of the camo done.

Now with white wing tips.

None of that will materialize for the moment. Work is grinding to a hault, as I´m about to start my holiday very soon. There will be plenty of time to catch up when I´m back.

Enjoy the summer!

Best

Henrik

Thanks Kevin. Yes, the broken links are tedious. They´re everywhere. But I have a way of mending the problem. :cheers:
