Bag the Hun North Africa [14]

I scrounged an hour this afternoon to basecoat the Bf109's in a vague approximation of RLM78.  I used various arcane shades of Foundry and Citadel grey, green and blue, having somehow mis-placed my little square teutonic pot of Humbrol grey-blue paint. Anyway, it looks a bit of a dog's dinner now, but I'm sure it'll be fine in the long run...although it may be a little messy in the interim.

I also basecoated the extra Hurricanes and a replacement Martin Maryland using the Foundry Chestnut Shade and Drab Shade concoction that I applied to the previous RAF contingent. This was followed by a wash in GW Gryphonne Sepia, hence the somewhat shiny afterglow. If I have time, I'll add the camouflage pattern tomorrow and do something to relieve the eye strain incurred by the Lufwaffe.
