Despite being very pleased with how the model turned out I was still in two minds about the scheme. I could have bought another kit but a: it's way over priced and B: I'm struggling for space in the display cabinet. To that end I decided to repaint the model and encouraged by the Ju 87 Stuka I did recently it had to be a winter scheme. That way I wouldn't have to strip all the paint off.
Using similar techniques I ended up with this. I think it turned out quite nicely and I was especially pleased as I used the hairspray technique for the first time. This is where a light mist coat of hairspray is sprayed onto the camouflage before spraying the white over the top. After about 20 minutes or so (I use Gunze/Tamiya paint) the area to be weathered is scrubbed off with water and a cut down paint brush. The water loosens the the hairspray which lifts the paint off in a pleasing fashion. When your done you can do the rest of the weathering.
Now I'm more confident with the technique I'm going to use it on other models. In fact I've just used it on a Spitfire IX for the worn paint at the wing root. You can check out my progress here; http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=33826
OK, that's it for this instalment. I hope you enjoy the pictures of the Me 109, happy modelling.
