Thanks, friends! Y'all are the inspiration for all these builds.....

I had a one-day holiday today (July 4) here in the U.S. and was able to do a bit of painting on ship #55. In the morning, while having coffee, primer was painted and flaws corrected:

We then spent the majority of the day doing other things, but the wing and tail surfaces received their splinter scheme just a little while ago:

These old Hobbycraft Bf 109s fit well enough that I can now paint the fuselage and then assemble the wing to it later. Just some touching up with putty and final painting will be all that is needed.

Thanks friends!

Final assembly of major parts is accomplished and final painting of the wing/fuselage joints done. Then I touched up the paint in those areas and have applied the gloss coats before decals. My decals are from various Academy, Hobbycraft, Aeromaster etc. sheets.

I have just gone back in this thread and found that No.1 first posted a photo of ship #6-55 almost exactly a year ago. Here are some photos of my finished "splinter" machine:

And a comparison of the original photo (overlaid with No.1's wing profile) and the model at much the same position:

Now I think maybe another training machine or a night-fighter for my next Jumo!

Yes, welcome Drumstick!!!! I've fallen in love with the Jumo Bf 109 and it's good to hear you're so well informed.
