Weekend Fw 190 A-4 crisscross camouflage completed

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With the exception of the inner gear door swing arms, I call this one finished.

Kit is Eduard’s weekend box OOB with the seat belts exception and the swastika decal that came from spares. Hope you enjoy

Wow, that's fantastic! I've got the kit in the stash but I must admit I'm somewhat scared off by the camouflage scheme. If mine turns out half as good as yours I'll be happy! Nice work! :)

That is stunning. I'd live to do a Fw 190 with the Tatzelwurm emblem on it but I think I might look for one in a simpler scheme. :)

I would love know what methods you used to get the straight lines and symmetry. I have this kit but have no idea how I would airbrush the zig zags to the standard you have.

Dave, that’s a fair question but to be honest there is no special method, just a steady hand, the right dilution ration (MRP 74 was a 60% paint-40% thinner), patient work always looking to see if all is heading the right direction and some inevitable retouches along the way. I didn’t use (but initially thought about using) pencil draw lines upon witch to paint over, or some sort of masks, since I did all freehand.

One thing I can advise, try on paper and/or some plastic first. Good luck!

That's unusual – a 190 pretending to be a garden fence…

 

Superb build, really.

 

Kind regards,

looking great. fine work with that AB... 

 

maybe one remark, continue the weathering on the yellow decals, for some reason only the 6 got some partly wash, but on the wurm and yellow bar nothing is visible... you have a nice weathered flying machine (that has done a few hours in the sky) with some very shiny markings... (doesn't add up IMHO)

Yeah, all markings has wash, but some are more visible than others, perhaps those needed a second wash
