Eduard 1/32 Bf 109 E-4 Adolf Galland Pt.2

Work continues on the Eduard 1/32 Bf 109 E-4.  The decals are on, which come from the kit and are outstanding.  Kit comes with full stencil data, with options!  I really do enjoy how Eduard provides all  the decals needed, and not just a few basic ones like other manufactures.  One really can fully finish an outstanding model out of Eduards boxings!  At the time of these photos, additional clear coats have been applied over the decals and next up will be washes and a flat coat, then additional weathering. I think its coming along very nicely!
