Hi folks,

This is the excellent Fine Molds kit, is from the box, just replaced the canopy for a Rob Taurus one, becasue this machine had a retro- fitted E-3 canopy, . Decals from the Xtradecal X72266 set "JG 5". 

Paint job was done with K-4 acrylics, using airbrush. 

This machine was flown by II./JG 5's Gruppenkommandeur Hptm. Horst Carganico seen in the winter of 1942. This is after his long walk home from crash landing 30Km north of Petsamo , July 22nd-25th - hence the change to Mickey Mouse motif. This is an ex 6th Staffel aircraft.

Hope you enjoy it!

That's one interesting '109, especially with the E-3 canopy!
Nice work on the interesting camo & markings.

Very nice! You could have said it was 1/32 scale and I would not have questioned it. But in 1/72 scale? Very nice, good job.
