MRP sprays well but required too many coats (at least 6) to get adequate coverage. One light swipe with a sandpaper sponge and you back to square 1. Am I not doing something right? Dai Ok. Then I will suggest that you wait until you choose a scheme before proceeding with the painting. Since you are concerned with the proper hardness of borders in the camouflage colors, I will assume you will be interested to know more detailed information on how real 109's were painted. But it's your model and you can feel free to ignore this information. Bf 109G-6's were produced in three factories and each one has it own distinct pattern. This blog post has a great breakdown of the three types, but I will link the images here. http://theprofilepaintshop.blogspot.com/2013/10/chosing-correct-wingpattern-for-bf109g-6.html https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzT90eXSUSBVdE5rTWdJQzlEU1U/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzT90eXSUSBVQzJGQXNJNWlJOEU/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzT90eXSUSBVWVQzWkNJb0tyck0/view?usp=sharing But these are just general examples, and there are variations - especially in terms of how far down the spine the top colors go, where exactly the transitions between the top colors are, and the mottling density. No two 109's are identical. To illustrate this fact, I also provided an image of three 109G-2's from the Regensburg plant just after completion. Notice that the left horizontal stabilizers of the nearest aircraft have the opposite placement of the darker RLM 74 and that the farthest aircraft has it's upper wing cross filled with black but the other two have just the white portions. Also note the differences in the color placement on the spines and mottling. Your best bet is to choose a scheme and find reference images of the exact aircraft you want to model. Then go from there, using the general factory guidelines to fill in the blanks. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
