A pair of 1/48 Focke-Wulfs

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Continuing the Luftwaffe fighters theme I've been building recently.
Firstly the Revell boxing of the Fw-190D-11 which I believe is the old Dragon kit. Reasonable kit with only a few problems. Finished in Vallejo arcrylics as a JV44 example from 1945.

Next is the Dragon Ta-152H. Similar to the Fw190D kit this goes together fairly easily with only the landing gear posing any problems. Again finished in Vallejo paint with Model Alliance decals.

As far as I know the colours were designed to stop friendly being directed at them.

The red and white striped Fw190 was operated by JV44 (Jagdverband 44), this unit was commanded by Adolf Galland. The aircraft were painted with striped under surfaces so as to identify them against friendly fire from the flak crews as they were used as top cover for the Me262 jets when taking off and landing. The unit was nicknamed the papagei staffel (parrot squadron).
