I've finished that model few months ago - it was first big (not 1/144) aircraft model I've finished since mid 90s (and first one painted with airbrush). It is weekend edition and I was slightly disappointed with it. It's old Eduard's Fw190, it supposed to have open engine and few other hatches. I prefer to do my models closed and it turned out that it's impossible to close engine without cutting off half of it - not a nice thing after spending a lot of time painting and weathering it. Other open hatches don't fit well as well. I've expected more from Eduard tbh. I've heard new Fw190 from Eduard are much better, maybe I'll grab one more since that my favourite German II War airplane. Painted with MiG Ammo paints.
Hello Chaps, I'd like to share with you my completed build of the Revell of Germany newly tooled (last year) 1/32 Focke Wulf Fw190F-8. I usually complete a full build series starting with an in-box-review with updates along the way until completion, but, I've been really busy with a new house my wife and I purchased in December, and so, we're going backwards and forward with contractors. Anyway, I found myself with a spare hour and thought I'd spend it on here! I have to say, this kit is another "Great Value For Money" kit from Revell of Germany; fabulous engineering, quality molded product and a complete joy to build without the need for filler and zero fit issues and looks good built straight out of the box as I did, except for the addition of antenna cables using 1.010" black EZ-Line! Based on the cost alone....I paid $23.95 for it, which is around 16.00 quid when converted, I'd give this kit 5 stars. For everything else, 4.5 stars, just because the instructions are still in black and white, they don't provide alternative paint numbers and the box isn't a sturdy lid and base design. On with the photos, I hope you like her as much as I liked building and painting her! Well, there she is....if you'd like to watch my YouTube Channel "Build Update" and "Final Reveal" videos for this build, then here are the links to those: Build Update #1 video link: https://youtu.be/hwiTyVsZXvI Build Update #2 Video link: https://youtu.be/6hugFcFgpFA Build Update #3 Video link: https://youtu.be/vdPiuCH_0qo Build Update #4 Video link: https://youtu.be/0Bpdc0JwAh4 Final Reveal Video link: https://youtu.be/eSI_qcd9s88 Thanks in advance for taking a look at this posting, watching any of the videos and for your comments, greatly appreciated!
