1/48 Revell Me-109G-10

This is my latest G-10, I wont talk about the model itself, as many of you may already know the highlights and disadvantages of this kit, but in my opinion it is still a good choice to build.  I received 3 of these great kits last March from my friend Doug Burger, thank you very much Doug.

Well the construction wasn't very hard, only minor filling was required, I used Model Master enamels, colors used are RLM 81/82/76, the scheme is based on
Cutting Edge's decal sheet 48074, a machine from Stab JG 77, Wk no. 784730, another improvement I've never thought I was able to do was the dropped flaps I was really happy with the results and maybe I will do it on my next model.

I didn't used the kit decal, I only used the kit Balkenkrauzes, all other markings such as "1" and tailband were  painted, for the number 1 only made a mask on my computer, the Swastikas came from an Eagle Cal decal sheet.  I had to admit I'm not very good doing the spiral line of the spinner, because of this I didn't wanted to take a chance, I will place it when I'm very satisfied with my painting skills.
