Tomas Lindgren, a colleague from IPMS Stockholm and a productive armour modeller, once came to the club meeting with this quarter-scale model of Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-3, to search advice among air modelling "experts" about painting and finishing aircraft models.
The Emil is the very first aircraft model built by Tomas. He used the Tamiya kit directly out-of-the-box. The Battle of Britain camouflage of RLM 71 / 02 over RLM 65 was airbrushed using Tamiya acrylics, and kit decals were used. Weathering was done using black paint and dry-brushing.
Modelling the subject out of one's ordinary line may not feel easy, but as these pictures show, is fully manageable! Needless to say, no further "expertly" tips were necessary...
