1/48 Eduard Fw190A-6/R11 Neptun "Red 21"


Recommended Posts

Another one I recently wrapped up. The antenna were made from scratch because the only aftermarket options were 2D photoetch, unacceptable.

Wow! First one of this variant I have seen built, and I think you have set the standard for it! Nice touches all around that show your attention to detail- the sooty exhaust, red-painted trim tabs and step, and the fuel stains on the drop tank. That's one nasty Wurger! 👌

My favorite Fw-190 NF is the A-6/R11 or A-8/R11 with the J3 Neptune 'antler' antennas.

That’s really nice. Love the weathering and the antennas. I bet you had to be careful handling that one near the end with all that lot?

That's a really nice-looking model. Is it the more recent 'retooled' Eduard Fw 190 kit or the older one released a few years ago?

 

The retool, I wouldn't dare build the old tool. Too complex and less accurate

Actually, everything else on this model will break before the antennae do - but yes still handle with care so I don't get stabbed! Haha

An excellent model, finished beautifully. I really enjoyed seeing your workmanship. Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to share it with us.

A lovely model, your painting skills make me jealous. Looking at all those antennas I do wonder just what sort of RF radiation the pilot was exposed to.
