    Hi All,

    This is my completed Bf 109 E-3. For some reason, I find the kit looks much better in the video than it does in the photos.

    Build Summary
    The purpose of the build was to get my Mojo back. So I built it fast, and how I felt, painted it with Humbrol enamels and did the panel lines with a Copic Multi liner marker. I could have taken more time detailing it but didnt really want to. In the end the goal was achieved, feels good to complete a kit in a while.
    Accuracy is the concern here, just a decent finish, a decent built and decent paint job.

    Nice job and good clean lines throughout. Looks a lot like my Airfix Bf109 same colour scheme too but i went for a more weathered efffect.
