Major Gerhard Barkhorn's 'Christl' of JG 6

Recommended Posts

Good evening.

 

Allow me to present 'Christl', a Fw 190D-9 flown by one Major Gerhard Barkhorn of JG 6. This is Tamiya's JV 44 boxing of their Fw 190D-9 in 1/72. Paints were Gunze Sangyo Aqueous and varnished with Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic Gloss and Matt varnish. I did give up on the spinner spiral as the decal wouldn't fit then broke up, then I forgot to paint it on.

 

Extras include:

  • Eaglecals decals
  • Eduard SUPER FABRIC seat belts
  • SAC metal undercarriage parts (as I lost one of the retraction struts)
  • Scratch-built cannon barrels, antenna and pitot tube from brass rod
  • Underside hoop from spares
  • Cockpit seat cushion moulded from Magic Sculpt (though the seat belts are obscuring it)
  • A few bits and pieces in the cockpit scratch-built from plastic
  • Wiring from EZ line

 

Weathering procedures include:

  • Chipping with acrylic paint applied with a sponge and brush, and with a silver pencil
  • Filters with Mig Ammo filter and thinned oil paint
  • Mottling on the propeller with thinned oils
  • Mud splashes with Mig Ammo Nature Effects and Splashes
  • Oil dot fading
  • Shadowy areas highlighted with thinned black oil paint
  • Panel lines with Mig Ammo Panel Line Washes
  • Streaking with AK Interactive Streaking Grime and thinned black oil paint
  • Exhaust marks with a home made stain mix and Tamiya Smoke
  • Dirt accumulation on the wheels with Mig Ammo Pigments

Very nice Dora, it looks like you have paint chippings on the prop, but the Dora's prop was fabric covered wood, doesn't spoil the model tho,

Very nice model and excellent paint job.

However I suggest you to fix a minor thing, looks like the antenna under wing is pointed backwards.

Cheers
