Hasegawa 1:32 Focke Wulf Fw 190 D9 Jagdverband 44-Red 1

Recommended Posts

It seems I'm stuck with props. I liked it much better this time, though.  Masking and painting the underside was a bit exhausting but it came out better than I expected...

Famous (or notorious?) Dora here, in 32nd scale from Hasegawa. The kit needs no introduction but the aircraft does I think. The entire squadron JV44 have their aircraft painted red with white stripes underside, and it is really amazing to have spared the time and effort for that in 1944-45. This is Red 1 flown by Leutnant Heinz "Heino" Sachsenberg in 1945. "Verkauft's mei Gwand, I fahr in Himmel" reads on the fuselage, which is a part of lyrics wrtitten to a Johann Strauss melody. All-black Luftwaffe crosses underside are also of note...

 

Thanks for looking. I will return to my jets now   :pilot:

Very nice.  The effort spent on masking and painting paid off big time.

Just WOW! Such masking and paint job would make me feel I'm the king modeller, which is nowhere near the truth :) Great model indeed.
