  1. Hello everybody! Which book or booklet can you recommend as the best reference of the Fw-190? I've recently noted again that my library has a significant gap when it comes to Kurt Tank's famous creation. "Best", of course, is a debatable and highly subjective category. What I am looking for is a publications that tells the different versions apart and contains a lot of (WWII-era) photographic material. I am less interested in pilots' stories, surviving examples in museums or profile drawings (if not backed up by photos). Also, the radial-engined versions and the fighter-bomber
  2. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my latest, the 1/72 Eduard Fw-190 A8, with metal gun barrels and pitot tube from Master, representing "Black 4" of JG300. Decals are from Eagle Strike (72002) "Home Defense Focke Wulf". The model was painted according to original photograph: https://www.jg300.de/fw-190a-8-schwarze-4.html Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. I painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with artist oils. The RV band is airbrushed for a more realistic appearance. There should be a DF loop under the fuselage; this part went missing w
  3. The Fw-190 is an AMT / ERTL kit at 1/48. I also used metal figures and the academy cubelwagen. For the base, I used styrofoam-dow, toothpicks, epoxy putty, static grass, painting (hagiography) powders and soil.
  4. I have a set of decals for Maj. Hajo Herrmann's FW-190A-6. The most readily available kits in 1/72 are the Hobby Boss Easy Assembly, the Academy and the MasterCraft. Some searching on this site led me to some posts that basically said "don't bother" with either the Academy and MasterCraft kits because they are too terrible. After looking at some pictures I've found of those kits, I tend to agree. I don't know anything about the accuracy of the hobby boss. Their lack of cockpit annoys me, but in general the few I've made have been fairly accurate and detailed (although, not always the case!
  5. The story so far... I started this almost a month ago. Ten of the days since then were spent off the grid in the Cascade Mountains, so I actually haven't been working on this for that long. After some wonderful experiences with Airfix's new tool offerings (especially the P-40C and Typhoon), I purchased their FW-190A-8. I only found out later that it seems to be universally disliked because of the engineering/fit of the cowling assembly and cockpit. That fact and the plain paint scheme (and the purchase of a couple Eduard A-5's) really soured me on the kit and it was pushed to t
  6. Hello fellow modelers, This project had started from the April, but due to my limited time the progress was very slow and I didn't managed to post earlier. The kit I chose was Eduard's Fw 190 D-9 Late #8189 profi pack. I started assembling the first parts (cockpit, some gun bay parts, gears etc.) and then I continued with the priming. Afterwards I painted the cockpit and cockpits sidewalls with AK true metal silver, I used this layer as a base for the chipping. Then I painted using mostly AK's 3rd gen colors. Unfortunate
  7. Hello friends, A small little tabletop that still makes me happy, when I finished it after a long time. Model is from eduard 1/48 scale. Cheers Andy
  8. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my latest, the 1/72 KORA Fw-190 F9 Panzerblitz. This version was the last variant of the famous "Butcher Bird", armed with unguided anti-tank aerial rockets. These rockets were similar to the R4M Orkan air-to-air rocket used by the Messerschmitt Me 262. The kit contains the well-known Eduard sprues (for the A-8 version), some resin and photo-etch add-ons plus a decal sheet for 4 marking options. I painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, according to instructions, as I could not find an original photograph of this particular aircraft.
  9. This is Otaki's 1/48 FW-190A-8 that I originally started as just a 'paint mule' to try out a paint mix. One thing lead to another and, well, here you are. I added details to the cockpit, belts from aluminum tape and solder, and a scratch built gunsight. Bulged canopy is a spare from Hobbyboss, with scratchbuilt headrest and bulkheads. For the gear, I added a strip to the landing gear doors to widen them, shortened the legs and added brakelines, spare wheels from and Eduard kit, cut out the make believe gear well and added a spare 'dimpled' panel from Eduard's, and scratch built t
  10. Dear fellow Britmodellers, my last finished build in 2018 is the 1/72 Hasegawa Fw-190D with the larger Ta-152 tail. The replacement tail is a resin item from Airwaves (SC72-117). Metal gun barrels from Master. Decals come from Eagle Cals (EC#58), representing a machine of III./JG 2, in 1945. Photo etch parts from Eduard. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Thank you very much for your interest, best greetings from Vienna!
  11. Hi, I would like to show you some photos of one of my latest works. It's a Fw-190A-8 from Eduard in 1/72 scale, profipack edition. What a wonderful kit to build. The camouflage was done freehand with Gunze paints. For the weathering I used AK Interactive products and some artist's oils. The rigging was made with Uschi VdR superfine elastic thread. I'm sorry for the cellphone quality of the photos. I hope you like it! João Moura
  12. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 KORA Focke Wulf Fw-190 F9 "Panzerblitz". The kit features Eduard's plastic sprues for an A-8 (some modification on the lower wings is required), a bag of resin bombs and rockets, three small photo-etch frets and a decal sheet. The bombs and rockets are not better than the plastic parts from the Eduard F8 kit. I had a left-over weapons sprue from a F8, so they were duly replaced. A small photo-etch frame supplies seat belts and pedals, but no instrument panel. Instrument panels are provided as black/white paper print-outs o
  13. Well known Hasegawa's FW-190 still very good and available. Meanwhile we got fantastic Eduard issue, but this one is still good choice for a stress-free build. It was finished one year ago, using Gunze colors, and Tamiya varnish. Now I see on the pictures I forgot to paint antenna wire. Decals from the box, only etched seat belts added. Loop antenna on the belly should be replaced by copper wire or etched one since this one from the kit is too thick.
  14. A recent scratch build project that i have completed, Focke-Wulf 190 T-1. This is a fictional design of a Fw-190 D-9 fitted with a turboprop engine and tricycle landing gear. For the paint scheme i used a Tricolour scheme from a Fw-190 A-8 With the colours of Yellow 15 from a Fw-190 D-9, the scheme was weathered using a graphite pencil and various washes. I was happy with the overall build of the model but was not as pleased with the paint schemes finish as i had to brush paint rather than using a airbrush due
  15. Completed my 1/72 Eduard Royal Class FW-190 in captured colors. Such a great little kit to build! Used aftermarket decals Quickboost cannons and MRP paint. Thanks for looking!
  16. Hi All, I spent almost 2+ months putting a little 1/72 scale Tamiya Fw-190 kit together pretty much out of the box and this is all I have to show for it.... Airbrushed with Gunze RLM shades, weathered with oil paints, enamel panel line washes, dry pigments and oil from my sweaty fingers... Not much done outside the box, I added some Eduard generic Luftwaffe seatbelts, drilled out the gun barrels, added some brake lines and an antenna wire. Check out the WIP thread, which honestly isn't amazingly helpful or informative but has some pretty pictures of the
  17. Hi All, After a long hiatus from modelling in which we sold up and moved to a brand new house, I've finally gotten my workbench setup again. I'm going to start off slow and steady, with Tamiya's 1/72 scale FW190 a3 kit. It's a lovely bit of plastic as would be expected from Tamiya, the parts are clean and really well detailed, and so far seem to fit together really well. I've finished off the tiny but beautifully detailed cockpit, complete with some generic Eduard luftwaffe PE belts (which seemed a tad oversized to me)
  18. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my latest build, Eduard's Fw-190 F8 from the "Profipack" edition. I added Master metal gun barrels, decals from the box, representing an aircraft of Stab/Schlachtgeschwader 10. Elements of SG10 saw action during the closing weeks of the war in Eastern Austria. This particular aircraft had a monochrome camoflage (most likely Dark Green) applied in the field. An orginal photograph (that leaves many questions unanswered) is here: https://www.asisbiz.com/il2/Fw-190A/SG10/pages/Focke-Wulf-Fw-190F8-Stab-III.SG10-Green-(K+-Czechoslovakia
  19. Hello, here's my 1/72 Tamiya Fw-190 D. Photo etch parts (seat belts, antennas, dashboard) from Eduard. Pitot tube from Master Model. Decals from Model Alliance "Defending The Reich's Skies Pt.2". Painted with acrylics from the Gunze range. Small details picked out with Vallejo paints. Photographed by Wolfgang Rabel, IGM Cars & Bikes, Vienna. Thanks for looking!
  20. OK Guys, The Hasegawa 1/32 Fw-190 A5 will be my entrance for this GB. I have got some goodies with it as well. There are two resin gun pods from Eagle cals for under the wing. This is the rüstsats U12. With this I also have the decals from eagle cals with one of the schemes for Lt.Erich Hondt's Fw-190 A5/U12 from 2/.JG11. Here are some pictures of the model and goodies. the Box. And the goodies with it. Here are the underwing gondola's with it's manual. And the decalsheet that is needed for it. This is the scheme I will use. Now we need to wait for a week before it start
  21. Heelo, I have bought a correction set for Revell's 1/72 Fw-190A-8 (Quickboost set No. 72161) I have compared it to the kit forward cowling ring (which has received some criticism for its shape), and there is no discernible difference (?) Even the radius of the opening is almost the same (the difference is less than 0.5mm) Img Source: Quickboost So, given that there is no difference between the two (visible to the naked eye), my question is - what does this replacement actually correct?
  22. Hi folks, after few galleries I decided to start my first build report here. I am going to build Eduard's Weekend Fw-190 A-8 using Karaya correction and upgrade kit. Karaya kit is rich of parts, both PE and (mainly) resin: And work in progress...
  23. Focke Wulf Fw190D-13 1:48 Hobbyboss History Arguably one of the best fighters of the time, the Fw 190 was widely used during the Second World War. A total of over 20,000 were produced, including some 6,000 fighter-bomber variants. The 190 remained in production from 1941 until the end of the war, going through multiple redesigns. The Fw.190 made a name for itself as a true Luftwaffe workhorse and was used in a wide variety of roles, including a high-altitude interceptor (especially the Fw.190D), escort fighter, fighter-bomber and night fighter. When the Fw 190 started flying operationall
  24. My first completed build in 2016, another Focke Wulf Fw-190 from Eduard's Profi Pack. Added photo etch landing gear covers from Eduard Set and decals from Aeromaster (Butcher Birds #72001). Photo of the original aircraft here: http://www.jg300.de/fw-190a-gelbe-1-7-oder-17.html Gun barrels from Master Model. Painted with acrylics from Gunze/Mr.Hobby. Photographs: Wolfgang Rabel, IGM Cars & Bikes Cheers!
