Hasegawa 1/32 FW-190D-9 "Schwarz 14 + I" 10./JG2, April 1945

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Here is my latest bird. This is the well known Hasegawa Dora, here upgraded with some resin goodies.
For those interested, upper wings are RLM76/82, fuselage and upper horizontal tail 81 and 82, underside and sides are 76/ bare metal.
Engine covers are 76/71. Ailerons (underside) and rudder are 65.
Paints are Gunze but I made my own mixes for 81 and 82, the rest is "out of the jar".

The spinner spiral is copied on the one shown on "Schwarz 1 + I" of the same unit.

 

It is a Fieseler built machine with an unknown Werknummer, so I've opted for something plausible (600378).
Markings are a mix of self-made masks (thanks to my new Silhouette cuting machine, I strongly recommend it), wet transfers and decals.

You may click on the photos to enlarge them.

 

Cheers

 

Tristan

Impressive 190, lovely work on the painting and weathering. Must have taken a while to rivet her.

What kind of silhouette cutter do you have?

Thank you all for your kind messages!

 

Tbolt, It took only a little less than forever to rivet her.

 

Jens, I own a Silouhette Cameo 3. I think any Silouhette cutting machine will do the job.

 

Cheers

I'm certainly not a 190/109 type of guy but I like a model when I see a good one and that fits the bill. The weathering looks spot on. Not too much and not too little, just right.

 

A nice Dora indeed.

Not many models could stand scrutiny to such close up photography. That is a deeply impressive build and paint job!

That is a work of art -  very impressive finish. I've yet to work out how do to Luftwaffe mottle, my current effort I ended up with too tight line, I need to build a few quick kits to practice more.
