I finished the aircraft yesterday, after fighting it a long way and cutting my finger. The model was originally going to be painted as Walter Nowotny´s Fw 190A-5, but I didn´t measure the yellow rear band correctly and had to start over to avoid making a mess. But, I learned my lesson, and I correctly measured the areas where the white were to be added, so their fit was perfect. Then, after decaling the entire aircraft, the right hand landing gear melted thanks to Revell Contacta, so I added some CA and backward pressure to hold it in place. I did the same with the pitot tube. I didn´t have these problems with the other two Fw 190s I built. I used the kit decals and the upper crosses from an Aeromaster sheet.
Fw 190A-5 Engine Set & Fuselage Guns Set 1:72 Eduard Brassin These sets are both designed for the new Eduard Kit. Engine Set This set provides a complete replacement engine and cowlings for the kit. There is a sheet of photo-etch and an amazing 21 resin parts. The casting on the resin is superb, some of the best from Eduard I have seen. There is a complete engine, mounting brackets and separate cowlings to be displayed of the model. A new resin front cowl, gear box and all new resin exhaust are included for the engine, and a new firewall for the airframe. The photo-etch fret provides the wiring harness for the engine as well as a myriad of small connector parts. Fuselage Guns Set This set provides a replacement set for the fuselage guns of the Fw 190. There is a sheet of phot-etch and 15 resin parts. All the resin parts are superbly moulded. As well as replacement guns there is a replacement fire wall, engine mounts, and back engine part which is seen when this area is open. There are two different gun covers provided but frustratingly nothing in the instructions indicating why, or which to use? The photo-etch sheet provides frames for the side of gun bay, and fixings for the guns & engine. There is also a frame for the front canopy. Combo If the modeller really want to push the boat out and invest in both of these sets then they are available boxed together. Conclusion The new Eduard Fw 190A-5 kit is great in it's own right. These sets will bring it up to a whole new level. Highly Recommended. Review samples courtesy of
