What if the British Fleet Air Arm used Messerschmitt Bf109s during the late
Shortly I intend to build a Seafire FR17 and a Fairey Gannet, both in the
Extra Dark Sea Grey/Sky colour scheme. Therefore, I've repainted one of my
paint dummies in the scheme to see if there are any problems with it. As I
intend to use an experimental fading technique (dosing acrylic matt varnish
with a small amount of very pale grey) I've also decalled the dummy.
The dummy I chose is an old Airfix Bf109F. I must say that the FAA colour
scheme really suits the Bf109. It looks excellent!

Recently did a Me 262 as a French Navy with folded wings, all over gloss
blue and black / yellow Suez stribes. Had a lot of fun doing it, so I also
did an X-1 as a fighter with wingtip Sidewinder missiles and underwing
gunpods. Painted it Olive Drab over Neutral Grey and used prewar stars with
the meatball in them - and some nice noseart. Both Revell 1:32 scale kits.
