  1. Hi guys, I just finished this longer than usual project. Is the fantastic Fw190 A-4 Eduard 1/48th kit with some aftermarket details. Eduard's Advanced Brassin set which includes: resin engine & fuselage guns, resin wingroot gunbays, resin propeller and PE upgrade set. Master Models gun barrels, HGW Models fabric German fighter seatbelts and decals, Quinta Studio 3D decals cockpit set, and Aires resin inspection panel on the vertical stabilizer. For the colour scheme I wanted to do something different to the usual ones that we see in the Fw190 so I've opted for this
  2. Good morning everyone, hope you are all doing well! Rather than waffling on too much about what went well and what didn't with this model I will just post a few photos and a rundown of the build. So, this is another one of those kits that i've had for a few years now. Im pretty sure alongside Eduard's 1/48th Spitfire Mk.IX this was one of the first kits I build and used an airbrush on when I was around 16; I actually had this model built somewhat broken in a box so dug it out to compare as im 21 now so its been 5 years. I have to say, even though this kit can be a bit tricky
  3. Here is a 1;72 scale Eduard Fw190A8/R2 Yellow 12 Werknummer 682958 Unteroffizier Paul Lixfeld, from 6.(Sturm)/ JG 300 at Löbnitz airfield , in December 1944. Beautiful kit let down by a weak undercarriage so I decided to stick it on a pole because why not? The heay weathering is authentic for this particular a/c . It features prominetly in 'Jagdgeschwader 300 Wilde Sau - A Chronicle of a Fighter Geschwader in the Battle for Germany. Volume Two September 1944-May 1945. reagrds
  4. Another of the £4 Aldi starter kits I did a couple of years ago.. I rather liked this kit very tricky to get the spiral white line on the spinner. Anyway hope you all like this one too!
  5. Build #6 since February rolls off the bench. After finishing 0 models last year thanks to a pinched nerve, and several years of barely finishing 2 models a year, 2020 has been a very productive year for me thus far. I've had a closet full of new-tool Eduard Fw190's for a while and finally got around to building one - and there are plenty more to come! Fw190A-8 "White 6" Lt. Gustl Stalffner, Staffelkapitan 7./JG 300 Lobnitz, Germany, March 1945 - BarracudaCast snapshot cockpit upgrade - BarracudaCast exhaust - BarracudaCast wheels - Ultrac
  6. Hi folks, I have been lurking around these forums for quite some time now and very much enjoyed it, especially the work in progress and ready for inspection sections. I finally summoned my courage to present some of my own models to the community hoping to receive some honest feedback which will ideally permit me to improve my skills or to question my techniques. This is the recently released Fw190F-8 by Revell, built OOB. Just some minor adaptations like drilled out guns, braking wires and antenna cable (stretched sprue). I use a mixture of Mr Hobby and AK acrylic colours. Although the
  7. Giddey to all! Here some pic`s of my FW 190 A 8, all comments welcome as usual, especially if you can suggest something I can do better! Hope you like it! Cheers Andreas
  8. Here's my recent completion(s): half of an Eduard 1/72 Fw 190A-8 Royal Class. I thought building all four in parallel would be a bit of a strain, but doing 1/72 warbirds in pairs is just perfect! You'll forgive me for picking somehwat hackneyed schemes when the Royal Class box offers so much more, but these are only the second and third Antons in my collection so I wanted the iconic and garish ones first the other two will be more interesting. There's still plenty of room to improve my overall finish, but I'm chuffed with these builds as they are the first time I have managed a c
  9. Hi all, When I've built my Fw 190A-5 1/72 from Eduard, there was on the spare parts the second wings and fuselage for the remaining version for the A5. This parts came on the box, so you can also buy the "small parts Overtrees" on the Eduard e-shop to complete a second model, also with the remaining decals. So, I decided to sacrifice an old and dusted Academy Fw A8 to use the missing parts of the plane. Also I added some spare parts of an A8 from Eduard. I've made it "in flight", to break the monotony of my static or stationary builds. So I added a pilot, I think from an Airfix
  10. Hello everyone... Ive been wanting to do this for a number of years. I have a few favorite pilots from WW2 and other era's as I'm sure we all do. My favorite Luftwaffe pilot was Josef "Pip's" Priller, not because he was German or serving the Nazi's. However he was a good pilot that seemed to care more about his men, than politics and the General's in Luftwaffe high-command. Much the same reason i admire Gregory Boyington. Recently i was helping a couple of members including @Valkyrie, who were building Prillers D-Day Focke-Wulf. I was inspired to start a thread and ask questions
  11. Hi this is my first post here as I start my return to Modeling. I have been accumulating a number of kits of the early Fw190A Jabo's and was wondering if anyone knows of any aftermarket availability of the ER4 adaptor that was used to carry 4 SC50 bombs. I think it was most often used by the A-3 but have seen it on other marks. My searches have come up with nothing but as is often the case I am probably looking for the wrong thing.
  12. So..... I'm a serial starter. I have like 12 kits being worked on.... Send help..... I bought this kit at the 2019 RIAT, so after a short stay in my stash this kit will be replacing my shelf of doomed Airfix Fw190 A-8. Anyway, on with the build! The parts It's hard to believe how many parts there are in a kit in this scale. This is my first Eduard kit, and it looks like I'll be buying more if my mind survives this build. I also gave a Spitfire to do somewhere in the stash. Detail is insane Nice clear parts. Interestingly, they're quite di
  13. Hot on the heels of Mitsubishi Zero, another humble Lidl £5 Special. I don't mind making mistakes on these starter kits, while I rediscover a hobby I'd left behind with the 1980's. Presently I'm not a quick or prolific builder. I only get the modelling itch when the evenings draw in. Also, I'm of limited means (in ££ and space), and can't afford a stash. I have my heart set of a few 1:48 scale kits, early/prewar, like the Walrus, Spitfire and the Blenheim. I want to do these kits justice, so I'm hoping I can pick up on a few much needed new skills on these sacrificial little kits.
  14. Desperate days A 725th BS/ 45th BG B-24H, nicknamed ‘Extra Joker’ was attacked 23. August 1944 during a raid on Markersdorf airfield in Austria. Two FW190 of JG3 attacked them and in seconds a fuel tank was penetrated, almost instantly it caught fire and ‘Extra Joker’ plummeted downwards in a death dive and eventually exploded, taking all ten of her young crew with her. The kill was well documented as their photographer flew as guest on an other ship on this mission, to take photos of their plane. Shocked to see him friends fall to earth in flames, all he could do was to cover
  15. Here is a 1:48 scale Fw190 A9 that I finished quite a while ago but never posted here. It’s the old Dragon kit re-boxed by Revell. I have a few of these in the stash but had never actually built one before. Kit had the extra broad propellers and the cooling fan with extra blades as well as the A9 hood. Despite its reputation the kit went together well only the finicky fit of the nose/wings (6 parts coming together) being a bit of a challenge. Finished in the brown rather than green RLM 81 just for the pure hell of it.
  16. I decided to pick this one out of my stash to give me something small to do. Plus I haven't built a WW2 German plane before so is a first. The Kit is a few yrs old now but quality is good. Here are the start pics for you . The cockpit looks dark but it actually isn't. Chris
  17. Hello, I present you my last kit, I just love the fw190 but spetially the Dora, for some time i planned this one and it took about 8 months or so. The concept behind this one was to show the Jumo 213E engine, which characterizes the Dora series, viewed from one side and below in such manner that both technical detail and also it's distinctive nose shape could be seen. Modifications: it's the 1/48 hobbyboss offering. I used the Aires resine engine and quickboost flaps, among the many modifications where a lot of scratch building, just to mention a few, interna
  18. hi here is my fw190 F8 from tamiya kit paints are gunze acrylics
  19. Evening all, Thought I'd share my latest completion, my first for nearly two years, and it really shows! Tamiya's 1/72 FW 190 D9. Being horribly out of practice meant I made a catalogue of errors with this one, particularly around the canopy framing which frankly looks awful, and my inability to get a nice, tight line finish from the airbrush without spatter means this falls into the category of looking good from a few feet, but its nice to have got something built and regain some enthusiasm after such a long hiatus...

  20. Here is a few photos of a Revell 1:72 Fw190 A8 converted to an A7 of JG1. Not sure if it was actually a A7 as they were pretty rare but thats what the book says ........;) Decals were courtsey of Kagero's book on JG1. Finished the kit at the end of last year only getting around to making soem photos now. regards Brian
  21. I won't dwell on the kit in much detail - as most here will have read thorough reviews or seen WIPs - but it's a real treat to build. Lovely detail, and nicely engineered. My only issues was that for some reason the top of the instrument panel ended up too high, and as a result the instrument hood (?) didn't fit. Took a bit of whittling. My fault I am sure. I don't have an airbrush, which has always put me off making planes which require the typical Luftwaffe mottling along the fuselage. But I do love the FW190, so doing a desert scheme seemed a neat sidestep of the mottling fear.
  22. Hi guys! When I took pictures of a another model, I also improved photos from one of my first Eduard models. This is a Fw 190A-8 kit in 1/72 scale, which I build few months ago. I added to this kit brassin fuselage guns (fit perfectly!), brassin wheels, brassin exhaust stacks and Master armament set with pitot tube. Model was painted with Gunze and Tamiya paints. Weathering I make with oil paints for artists, dry pigments from Ammo mig and Tamiya Weathering Master sets.
  23. Hey, here I present you my last build: Fw190A-5, Eduard 1/72 ProfiPack. I had added some extras to this build, her corresponding Flaps, some more details in PE, and the engine and fuselage guns, all from the same manufacturer. This is, for now, my very most difficult build because of the tiny of this size. The engine and the guns are so small for my big rude fingers! It was a challenge.... Well, I'm happy with the result. I have had some mistakes at the time to mount the engine, it was a lot of try and failure. The upper cowling cover also is a little bit bent from th
  24. So guys and girls, Here she is. After almost seeing the darkness of the round archive (aka dustbin), she made it. The whole adventure can be followed in this WIP So I learned some stuff here. First how to prime with a spray can, secondly I will cut the decals following recesses next time and gloss coat them. Third I use an accryllic gloss and it is possible gluing parts after that coat with standard glue.I feel my painting skills have improved a bit and I like the highlighted effects like on the machinegun cover. The Revell kit is nice with good detail and looks good t
