1/72 Fw-190 A8 2/JGr 11 Black 10

Recommended Posts

This Kit was offered to me by my SO a while back, and its one of the first "new generation" airfix kits.

I've been looking for it for quite a long time, and this groupbuild gave me the push to open the box.

I will be depicting the Black 10 from the 2/JGr 11 station at Darmstad-Dierburg in 1945.

I didn’t find much information about this particular machine, except that it didn’t end well..

So.. here is some work:

This is my first contact with the newest Airfix, and man.. I really like them. Some sayt that panel lines are too deep, but I kind of like that.

The detail is quite nice, although the cockpit is a bit bland, so I decided to make some seatbelts.

Cockpit painted and both halves glues together.

Good start! But why seatbelts, I think you have a pilot for this bird! 😉

Hi Hajo,

True, but I dislike pilots in models! 🙂

update..

 

Fuselage and wings glued together.

There is a small gap between the wings and the fuselage and another in the underbelly.

I was expecting a perfect fit from this tool, but its still light years from old Airfix 🙂

The nose piece is completely off. I dont really understand how they miss this when designing the pieces.

And the paint job. Pre-shading with black and then Valejo Model Air: Light Blue RLM 76, Grey Violet RLM75 and Dark Grey Blue

Looks great!

 

 I am dreading the painting my Luftwaffe builds..I have never managed to get it to look goo, but yours looks great! I have gotten away from pre-shading, but I think it works for the lower blue of these aircraft..gonna have to get back into it.
