  1. Hello everyone I hope you are having a safe Christmas. My recent build of the Fw190 D9 from my favourite Jagdgeschvader. This is Black 4 Chevron, minus the 4. Scratch built brake lines and anchor points for the drop tank, strangely Eduard do not include these parts in the kit they just show it glued to the ventral gondola. Painted with Mr Hobby Aqueus, I hope you like it, any comments on the build or depiction of the actual aircraft are very welcome. I'm trying to take better photo's too! Thanks for looking.
  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 when I took the model to the photo shoot. (The loop was discovered after the pictures had been taken and added to the model.) I know you've all seen plenty of Eduard Fw-190s on these pages already, so thanks for your interest!
  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 Brian
  4. With never ending discussions on the best 109's available, what becomes of the old ones in the stash that don't quite make the cut anymore with today's requirements? Simply a bit of fun and, well, maybe just a little bit of upgrading.. So, I wanted to see what I could make from Academy's 109G. Fin and rudder came as spares from an AZ Models kit, and the spinner came from the ancient Airfix plane, as did the yellow 4. Luckily, yellowing wasn't an issue here. The full build report can be viewed here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOazMtaOmWw Cheers, Luka
  5. 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!
  6. Hello and thanks for your interest. This is the new Eduard 1/72 Focke-Wulf Fw190 kit, released a couiple of weeks ago. The box contains two grey runners, a clear sprue, photo-etch parts and masks for painting. All parts are sharp and very clean, this is not an average short-run kit, it’s on the highest technical standard possible. Eduard did not repeat Airfix’ mistake – the access door on the tail fin is on the left side only: Two different propellers are included, a standard one and the broader one also found on the A-9/F-9 or D-9. You can’t replicate a textbook A-9 though, as the later 14-blade fan is not included. Radar antennas for the A-8/R11 conversion (night fighter) indicate another possible variant: Undercarriage doors come in two styles as well – one for the A-8, another for an earlier version (a-5/A-6). These parts are a little overscale in thickness and I plan to exchange them for phot-etch parts from Brengun. You get two different types of wheels, with or without tread, and different hubs too: There’s a variety of gun cowlings as well. Clear parts come in variations for open or closed canopy. Both styles of canopies are included, as well as ‘blinkers’ that indicate a ‘Sturmbock’ is likely to follow this release. If you decide to use Eduard’s pre-painted photo etch parts, you don’t have to grind down the structure of the plastic parts – there’s a part without structure as well if you go for the photo-etch. Fine rivets are represented on the skin, the best I’ve seen on a 1/72 Fw-190 kit so far. Strangely, Eduard have molded the pitot tube on the wing. I doubt this is a good idea as it will inevitable break during construction and painting. Five attractive decal options are supplied in the ‘Profi-Pack’ box. I chose "White 6" of JG300. So, how does the kit go together? As ususal, we start with the cockpit. And of course I threw in all the nice colored phot-etch parts. Looks great in that scale, doesn’t it? Well, the problem is, all of the beautiful assembly will not fit into the fuselage! It’s too broad on the front end and needs to be reduced significantly. Sadly, also the photo etch parts are oversized and need trimming. The wheel bay assembly is a very complex affair, made up from 12 parts. There’s little tolerance in Eduard’s kit – if you don’t work super precise you will face major problems later on. If you have ever built a 1/48 Fw-190 from Eduard you’ll recognize similarities between those kits. The inner guns have to be mounted before gluing the wings together. While this makes sure they are in the correct position, they will be in the way when you clean up the mating joint on the front of the wings. There are locating aids on the inside of the fuselage for the positioning of the cockpit; nonethelss, it takes some time and patience to get a good fit here. The front part of the cockpit is a very delicate assembly with some leeway; Correct positioning is mandatory to make the clear parts fit later on! A dry run reveals some tension on the wing/fuselage joint. Wheel boxes must be sanded down. A little pressure helps to align the wings: Another fit issue appears on the fuselage side where the wing meets. Filled it with water-based Vallejo putty. Now the front clear part can be glued on. A gap appears on the motor cowling ring. I know that this is present on real Fw-190s but it looks odd on the model, so it was closed with Vallejo putty. Next up is ‘Primer Time’! I use Tamyia Grey Primer, decanted into the airbrush. The coat helps to detect irregularities, dust and scratches. Let’s do some pre-shading, that gives the finished model a more realistic look and adds depth to the surface structure. As I chose “White 6” from JG300 out of Eduard’s marking options, first comes the Blue/White RV band. I start with the White color. With the places to remain White masked, next comes the Blue color. The underside color RLM76 is applied. After about 7-8 runs of highly diluted paint, the density of color builds up. Upper colors are RLM75/RLM83. We start with the lightest color, RLM75. I always add a drop of pure white for scale effect. Blu Tac sausages are draped over the wing to replicate the camo pattern. Paper masks keep paint away from Grey areas. Some more pre-shading before we go along with RLM83 Dark green. Looks alright, doesn’t it? Painting instructions show a rather dense mottling on the front of the fuselage. See if we can replicate this in small scale.... Ouch! The RV Band didn’t turn out as expected. Color looks iffy, too. Let’s do it again! Second attempt looks more convincing: Now it’s time to put decals on. These are of highest quality, like you expect from good aftermarket manufacturers. Decals are very thin but tough and can be moved on the surface for some time. They do tend to fold up when slid off the backing paper, though. That's been two weeks on my workbench; more updates to follow next week. Cheers! Roman
  7. Hello, here's my Eduard Fw-190 A8 finished.
