Hans Gunther von Kornatzki's Fw 190A-6/R2


Recommended Posts

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 gives me new problems.

Hi,

your 190 does look the part. Well done!

I am surprised that Hasegawa kits put up a fight on a regular basis, but Murphy's Law rules our known universe!

Mind you, I get nasty surprises from Tamiya kits... everybody else builds without the slightest care in the world... No comments required.

 

Looking forward to your next 190!

Happy Holidays!!!

True, I haven't experienced the wondeful fit these models are said to have for some time, the latest three needing sprues to eliminate steps/gaps on the wing/fuselage join, and this one had the cowling issue.

Happy Holidays to you too!
