Eduard 1:48 Fw190 A-3


Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

 

This has been on the bench, albeit stalled, for a few months now which is a shame as its a really nice kit. Decided to dust it down and try and get it finished. 

 

As its semi completed, I've added a few photos to give a flavour of progress to date.

 

Cockpit parts painted and weathered:

 

FW190

It's being built as a captured RAF machine using decals from Karaya. It therefore needs yellow undersides (since over-painted in a slightly richer yellow shade):

 

FW02

 

 

The upper camo has been started, although you'll have to trust me because RAF Ocean Grey from AK Real Colors is the same shade as the plastic!

Finally, I decided to use AM wheels, also from Eduard, and here's a comparison with the kit part:

More intermittent progress to follow!

Finally a bit of progress. I hate painting camo freehand so can only face doing it a bit at a time,hence the other wing still being bare plastic. 

 

First time using AK Real Colors too.

A lot of tidying up still to do, and I'm yet to mask the yellow undersides so the boundaries are quite messy.

Hiw did you find the AK Real Colours. I’ve not tried them yet but am tempted. 
 

Thanks

Hi James,

 

If you've used Tamiya or Mr Hobby acrylics, you'll have no issues with them.

 

The colours do look a lot "brighter" in the pots than the other two brands though (this is RAF green).

Thats quite a difference in shades between all three brands! 

 

Sure is! RLM02 is a similar story.

 

Nice paint to use though, thins nicely with Mr Levelling Thinner.
