  1. This was my last model of 2019, finished right before Christmas. Eduard’s latest 190, the A-8 version, vastly superior to the “old” moulds from 2010 or so, is a pleasure to build and should provide a rewarding experience to all kind of modelers. the model tries to depict Rudy Artner JG.5 plane. It’s my own interpretation from the few B&W photos coupled with some educated guessing. Painted with Mr. Hobby 74/75/76, MRP 04
  2. Not all wingy things but most of them are but here is an overview of my most productive year of modelling in a very looooooooooong time. Some of them have been posted here some not. Overview 2019 From Left to right : Junkers 88 Mistel 1:48, Volkswagen Samba Bus 1;24 , Ki61 Hien 1:48, Fw190 A3 1:48, Austin MkIV armoured car 1:72, F100F 1:72, Hawker Sea Fury 1;48 and last but not least a scratch- built fantasy Sci-fi thingy called the "Commissar of Grievance' And in the close but no cigar category are Mirage F1A
  3. BODENPLATTE Fw 190D-9 & Bf 109G-6/14 1:48 Eduard Limited Edition For this limited edition boxing the kits are focused on German aircraft that participated in the Operation Bodenplatte on January 1, 1945. This was an attempt by the Luftwaffe to gain air superiority over the stalled Ardennes battlefield. The operation achieved surprise and initial success, however it ultimately failed. While many allied aircraft were destroyed on the ground actual aircrew casualties were light and most of the losses of aircraft were easily replaced. This would be the last strateg

    Turkish Fw 190 A-3a

    I'm looking information about camo of Fw 190 in Turkish A.F. Some sources claim that were standard LW camo RLM 74/75/76 but according to others (for example Tiger Head Decals) RLM71/02/65. In in the end od service 190 received own camo - by RAF Dark Earth/Dark Green/Azure or all green (US Olive Drab?). Every helps are welcome - eduards kits is waiting.
  5. Hello again, I sincerely hope you don't mind me asking two consecutive questions about similar subject but I am planing a multi build of Eduard's Fw 190 A-3 and would like to find a proper references for the decal sheets I have! This time I am looking for a photo reference (or any secondary source of info) regarding Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-3 featured on Cutting Edge Decal sheet CED48196 "Fw 190 Reich Defenders Pt2" (can be seen here: http://fineartofdecals.com/goodies/148-treasures-axis/ second decal described on the page) Decal sheet instructions are mentioning the photo but
  6. Fw 190A-5 Light Fighter (7439) 1:72 Eduard Weekend Edition The Focke-Wulf Fw190 was designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s. His aim was to create a fighter that was not only fast and agile, but also reliable. It had a wide track undercarriage to improve ground handling and also utilised electric rather than hydraulic controls to reduce the risk of system loss in combat. The Fw190 also marked a departure from aircraft like the Bf109 and Spitfire as it combined a 14 cylinder radial engine with a development of the NACA cowling system. This choice was crucial as i
  7. Hi folks, almost completing my third model model in this year, the weekend box of Eduards 190 A-4, a fast build but a not so fast paintwork
  8. Focke-Wulf Fw.190A-8/R2 ProfiPACK (82145) 1:48 Eduard The Fw 190 was a shock to the Allies when it arrived, and was a trigger for evolution of the Spitfire once it became known. It was designed to be small, consisting of little more than a radial engine and space for the pilot, but its diminutive size belied its offensive power that was concentrated around the centre line of the aircraft with guns installed in the engine cowling and wing-root that fired through the propeller. The A-8 was a late war variant, but was still the most produced of the A series aircraft,
  9. Pegasus Hobbies Fw 190A-3. I had bought this kit with all the pieces out of their sprues (but with all the pieces being present) and without the original decals (it came with two sets of badly stored ones). I used Eaglecals decals for the Fw 190A-2/A-3 in 1:48 to represent a plane used by Schlg 1 in the Eastern Front. You can look this plane up on Google as "Fw 190A-3 jagdbomber a." I used a Hasegawa 190 bomb rack, and a Bf 109 bomb.
  10. Please read the rules on blogs, web channels etc here; Thx the Mod Team.
  11. This build is complete! Very enjoyable, nothing to complain about but my very own lack of some skills. Several mistakes were made, but this is what learning is all about. Anyway I want to thank Eduard for improving their already very good kit. Next time I'll stick to a new one, probably with some resin pats thrown into the mix. And thanks for all encouraging comments that helped me along the way! MFG Kibar
  12. Built a couple of years ago and a foray into 1/32 scale, here is my Revell Fw 190 F-8. I used an Eduard cockpit picked up cheap at a show, Eduard wheels and HGW belts. The kit was a bit of a disappointment after all the excitement of a new large scale Wurger - details are a bit heavy handed and the fit around the cowl was difficult. All in all though, an enjoyable kit. I preferred not to show the engine which, although quite well detailed, was a little heavy handed. The aircraft modelled was found abandoned in Southern Germany at the end of the war. It had originally been built as an A-8 but c
  13. A new project - FW 190 W.Nr. 431007, flown by Heinz Bär.
  14. Reichsverteidigung Fw 190A-8/R2 & Bf 109G-6/14 1:48 Eduard Limited Edition This Limited Edition kit focuses on German heavy fighter aircraft Fw 190A-8/R2, and fighter aircraft Bf 109G-6/14 flown by Defence of the Reich fighter units. The Kits We have previously reviewed the profipack boxing of the Bf 109G-14 here, so will point you to that review if you want to see whats in the box. This duel boxing contains one of each kit with the masks and photoetch you find in the profipack kits. However it would seem at some point the Eduard have re-toole
  15. Here is my Revell 1:72 Focke-Wulf Fw 190F-8 which I built back in 2013. It represents "White 11" of I./SG4, Luftwaffe, based at Picenza, Italy, in May 1944. The kit was built mostly OOB adding etched belts from Eduard and replacing the nose ring with a correct replacement part from Quickboost. The kit was painted by brush except for the mottling and varnish which were done by airbrush. The white underwing tips were made from white decal sheet. One thing of note was the lack of swastikas. Revell never includes them but in this case it was correct as, together with the
  16. Focke-Wulf Fw.190A-4 Weekend (84121) 1:48 Eduard Introduced in 1941 to combat the ever-improving Spitfire, the Fw.190 was intended to supplant the Bf.109 if it reached a plateau in development, or run alongside it as a stablemate. Its powerful twin-bank radial engine was installed with a close-fitting cowling and was initially equipped with an oversized, ducted prop-spinner to keep the engine cool, which was discarded early in development in favour of a fan that ran on the prop's drive-shaft to push air through the cylinder heads, which also facilitated oil cooli
  17. Another 190 for the collection, and I still haven´t built my Pegasus Hobbies 190A-3 with EagleCals decals. I´m also planning to buy again the Fw 190A-5/U7 Graf Special in 48 from Hasegawa, and build the high altitude U7 version with the resin parts, however, there´re many models I´d like to buy, and so little space on my hand luggage. This aircraft also gave a bit of a fight, because somehow the cowling wouldn´t fit over the engine, it would get stuck half way, so I had to force it into place and then hold it while the glue was drying. I swear each new Fw 190 in 48 I build from Hasegawa g
  18. Fw.190A-8/R2 Upgrades (for Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Eduard's newly issued early Fw.190A-8/R2 has been released in different boxings, now Eduard offer some upgrade sets for the kit. As always it's a modular approach, and you can choose what you use, with a guarantee that it'll fit your model just so, as it's by Eduard for Eduard. As usual with Eduard's resin sets, they arrive in the familiar Brassin clamshell box, with the resin parts safely cocooned on dark grey foam inserts, and the instructions sandwiched between the two halves, doubling as the header card
  19. Fw 190A-2 fighter (82146) 1:48 Eduard ProfiPACK edition. The Fw 190 came on-stream in 1941 and gave the RAF a shock with its superior performance to the older Bf.109 that it was mistaken for by many a hapless Spitfire pilot. The visionary designer Kurt Tank stripped down the aircraft as much as possible to give it the speed and manoeuvrability advantage the German Luftwaffe needed, which resulted in a small but pugnacious design with a twin-bank radial engine buried in a close-fitting nose cowling that could out-fly a Spitfire Mk.V in most respects below 20,000ft.
  20. Fw.190A-2 PE Upgrades (for Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Eduard's newly issued early Fw.190A-2 has been released in different boxings, now Eduard offer some upgrade sets for the kit. As always it's a modular approach, and you can choose what you use, with a guarantee that it'll fit your model just so, as it's by Eduard for Eduard. Update PE Set (48971) The main thrust of this set is new main landing gear doors, there are also additional parts for the main gear bays, shell chutes in the wings, brake lines for the landing gear legs, external rack braces
  21. My first attemp to an A-8 Fw 190. I think it came out pretty well. Decals were more brittle than usual, the red bars breaking a bit while I moved them into possition. They were touched up with Revell red 36, which was a surprisingly good match to the decal´s colour. Spinner spiral was hand painted. Markings are for Ernst Schröder´s Fw 190A-8.
  22. Fw 190A-3 (48956) 1:48 Eduard This set contains some small cockpit items, wheel well details, new gear doors, leg brake lines, gun panel details, and cockpit canopy details. Review sample courtesy of
  23. Hi, it´s me again. I bought this decal sheet, and because Eaglecal´s profiles don´t give me much information regarding camouflage mottling, I wanted to know if you guys had photos of: 1) Fw 190A-3 Chevron and Wavy line, attached to I/JG51, painted in the temporary white camouflage scheme (I want to know if the aircraft had the normal Fw 190 camouflage before being painted in white). 2) Fw 190A-3 Yellow 5 and horizontal bar of the same colour, attached to 6/JG1 (I want to know if the aircraft had the outer guns and the bulges under the wings, or if it was a factory release of an
  24. Having built three of them and with two more on the stash, I wanted to know if someone else has had issues fitting the gear doors to the struts because of their length, because when the time comes, I have to trim both doors to get them to fit, am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
  25. Fw 190A-5 Cockpit, Fuselage Guns, and Engine Sets 1:48 Eduard Brassin The newly improved Fw.190A kits from Eduard have been coming thick and fast, with additional detail added from the box. For those that want more, there are a range of PE and resin update parts from Eduard's own ranges that are pretty much guaranteed a good fit and have been engineered to replace parts that just can't be moulded to scale in injection plastic. These three sets cover the cockpit, fuselage guns, an the engine area, which isn't in the kit, but can either be simulated by adding a com
