Airfix 1:72 scale Bf 109 E-4 new tool second one of these nice little kits completed. A pleasant little build second time around - didn't experience any of the 'problems' reported elsewhere - cowling too short ? is perhaps if you've built too many Tamiya Emils. I even managed to get the smaller parts off the sprue this time without breaking them, the dihedral etc was spot on..kit decals (added the swastika of course...). Von Werra's machine is often illustrated with a white or even 'lighter' blue cowl - looking at this particular picture of the real thing the entire fuselage looks very 'bright' with the setting sun low in the sky - so ultimately the 'lighter' forward fuselage area is probably in actual fact no more than the glare of the sun light bleaching out the image a little..
