Matt, a very impressive build. Your painting technique with color modulation for tone variation, and the overall weathering are extremely well done. Certainly not too heavy handed, yet realistically done.

Nicely done Matt, that is not an easy camo scheme to do well and you have nailed it

Absolutely first class work. The desert scheme and weathering are both extremely well executed.

Hi Matt, congrats on a very nicely done desert Emil! I really am captivated by the desert air campaign and your build certainly does this subject justice. Again a job very well done. As far as period and theatre specific markings I agree on the scarcity of options. I personally completed a build of Trumpeter's E-7 Trop kit in 32nd scale which Jessie published here on Aeroscale a year or so ago. In that case I found a Kagero publication entitled "Messerschmitt Bf 109E, E-1/E-3/E-4/E-7 Models" to be most helpful. I mention it just in case you might be interested in it. Anyway, awesome job and thank you very much for sharing! Jim.

Thanks everyone for your great comments. I've been away for awhile, but it's good to see people enjoyed this build. The Cyber-Hobby 109s are really top-notch kits
