I haven't built any of Hobbyboss' Fw190 family but I'm interested in this one....although w/number 220014 should be <61 I think!

The jury is still out on that one. Eagle Cals sheet #19 gives you both options.

Looks pretty interesting and I see Hannants are listing it as a future release at £14.99 so not a bad price. I haven't built many Hobby Boss kits but I've got on well with the few that I have. This will be going on the list.

Hi Andy,

Jerry Crandell and the Japo books give some pretty clear pics of the side profile of the aircraft and it certainly looks like <61 to me.

I know Jerry says that it may have originally been 81 and re-painted but I'm not so sure.

regards

Having looked at pics last night in the "Yellow Ten" book it looks like "81" to me...oh dear! Haven't checked Japo book, is it in volume one or two?

Andy

It's in Japo Vol1 Andy.

It's certainly clearer in Crandells Vol2 to be honest. Heres a couple of shots just from my phone:

And I just finished Eduards D-11 kit as this very plane. Again phone shot, sorry

No worries mate ;)

And yes you do haha! Although I must be honest & say I prefer Japo's colour call outs, the pictures in Crandells books are wonderfully printed!
