Beautiful work !

I never knew a  BF 109 flown during WWII could look so good in those colors.

You might just start a "What If " trend for Axis aircraft

That is so cool! Outstanding story too! Beautiful.

I'm gonna have to try that on one of my 1/72 scale planes.

Great looking 109 James! Those American marking really add a splash of color not normally seen. Thanks for posting!
