Hello my Friends.

This is my latest.

 

Uffz. Julius Handel, IV,/JG 54, Poland, August/September, 1944.

 

I enjoyed building and painting this kit.

One thing thing about the kit...The pilots seat did not fit in the cockpit very well and had to be cut down a lot to fit.

All the best.

Ralph.

Very nice Ralph.  I like how the yellow color extends past the spinner and onto the prop blades.  The complex “mottle” scheme looks great as well.  All in all, just superb!!!!!! :clap2:

I'm working on a similar model now.  For me the pilot seat fitted okay but I struggled to get the wheel well inserts to sit properly.  It is the second time i've fought an Eduard Fw190 in 1/72 on this one horrid problem.

Maybe it's me?  Probably is.

 

And you have come up with a really great bit of modelling

Da iawn Ralph.

I also struggled to get the fuselage halves to fit ,had to clamp them under a lot of pressure but in the end it was ok.

Sorry to hear about the seat fitment, seems most unlike Eduard.

 

Model turned out beautifully, you're a mottling ninja.

Cheers Jackson.😀

Hi Ralph,

 

that's really great. Very good paintjob! The yellow on the prop looks perfect!

 

I have one of this kits in my stash but can't decide to built eduard or Airfix. The only thing which I have decided is that it should carry a Hagelkorn under the belly (provided by the Revell kit). But too many projects on the bench to finish first...

 

Best wishes Boelki

Brilliant work, Ralph -

 

You really got the look of the faded mottle camo effect spot on

 

Regards

 

Dave

This is a very impressive rendition of a beautiful aircraft, there's something about the 190. Karl May would have liked the decal under the cockpit as much as i do. It makes as much sense as Hans Joachim Marseilles love for jazz and he could get away with it, of course.  Excellent,

Cheers,

Ernst.

That's terrific looking!  The mottling is superb and I really like the yellow on the prop -- that's very unusual.  I had to go back and check the scale, because I could've sworn this was 1/48!  Great job!
