Hey, why finish a stalled build when you can start a new one? Or two?! Got these delightful Wurgers to build, both in beautiful 1/48 scale. I'm going to do the FW190A-5 as Nowotny's two-tone green steed while in JG54 Grunhertz, and the A-9 as per the box art on the Hasegawa kit. I've not got a lot of space or time at the moment, so I was going to go pretty much as basic as possible, but then decided to add a little here and a little there... Fuselages Couldn't help adding the canopy emergency jettison lever, fashioned from a strip of Swann Morton blade foil, twisted and glued in place. Kit IP and seat, simple drybrushing. I will add Eduard PE belts later as they are the only thing really lacking with this kit. Cockpit, added the pedal straps and map folder strap from thin slivers of tape. The engine gear housing and the troublesome push rods. These simply pinged off the central piece when I was removing them from the sprue, so I hand drilled out mountings for some copper wire. Pain in the rear. I tried, hopelessly, to paint the BMW sign on the bottom of the gear housing... Any comebacks critiques or advice welcome!
