Latest Build: Eduard 1/48 Fw190 A-3


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

This is certainly not my best build, at least with respect to weathering. nor the best photography, but I wanted to put this out there.  I built this one primarily because I really liked the paint scheme, the two tone green and I also liked the painted over smaller yellow band that is closer to the empennage; I'm not sure I did the best job in simulating the overpainted band, but I gave it a shot.  I was happy with the remaining yellow band, and the precise measurements in the yellow band it took to make sure the band aligned perfectly with the ends of the cross and the black outline decals.  I'm sure that's not a big deal to most of you, but it was for me!  And I'm always thrilled to end up with a decent painted band (as in this case) or a spiral on the spinner.  

 

I've got a ton of Eduard Fw190s planned yet to build, but I think this one is going to be my last one for awhile...I've got too many other airplanes to work on!  Like I said, I know this isn't my best work, but if you have some thoughts, feel free to pass them on...  Thanks.

It looks nice. For future reference, are you aware of the Display Case sub-forum for posting completed projects?

Actually, I am, thanks.  I just thought it might get some different views over here.  I'll put future completed projects over there.

Lovely depiction of WNr.2278.  This one crashed 29.Sept. 1942 near Fl.Pl. Ljuban, Uffz. Erwin Pflaum, wounded.

 

The I/JG 51 was the first Ostfront unit to be equipped with the new Fw 190A.
