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:

- Well done, it could be interesting to see it in real natural light photos to really appreciate the extent of the work done ...

Thanks. Probably could have been interesting and even better under natural light as you suggested, but the model's already gone as it was a long-promised gift.
