Dear Airfixers,
this is just a small and quick update of my Bf 109 Emil 1/24 scale. I am posting this quick one because it concludes the main building part of my model. Finally, the wings are on!





This is a view of the underside with radiators and the belly which was scribed and riveted. Quite some filler was required to fill sink many sink zones.



Now, paintwork will start. This will be a challenge for me because I am better a builder than a finisher. I will make sure it will be also fun, though.
Greetings and thanks for following.
Daniele

... I like building more than painting too. Lots of filler and card on that one! Looks pretty gawky without ailerons or flaps!

Regards,
Adrian

Quite a lot of acreage to cover in paint. It's shaping up into a beauty!
