    Kitty Hawk Fw-190 new renders

    Did you notice how the port and starboard covers are not mirror images of each other? These CADS are still early so I'm sure things will change considerably along the way. I could do without the whole engine too, just a decent looking plug is fine with me since it's virtually invisible when it's buttoned up anyway.
  2. Me too, Gaz! Just need to figure where to display when I'm done!
  3. Yeah I've pulled it out a few times over the last couple of months and I was waiting for some filler to dry on the 190 so I figured what the heck. The P-40 is almost done and that dates back to about the same time I started this one, really want to get the shelf queens off the shelf!
  4. Guess what I pulled off the shelf of doom today! All the old WIP pics were wiped out courtesy of PB a couple of years back but I took these last year. I spent a good part of the day getting the resin engine nacelles off the pour stubs and cleaned up as well as some touch up work on the wings. Still lots of little areas that need some massaging but once I get the nacelles mounted on the wings that will be a huge step forward. Will post some more pics tomorrow.

    Würger Party!

    I don't recall if Z-M's D-9 will be SWS or basic series. If the former I'll just stick with my Hasegawa Doras just because they go together beautifully and look the part when finished. Surprised no one else has done 1/32 D-9 considering how popular the aircraft is.

    Würger Party!

    The EE cockpit is beautiful, I just cringe at spending more for the cockpit than I spent on the model!

    Tamiya 1/32 ??

    I've heard that Tamiya is slowing down on 1/32 due to development costs. Expect more 1/48 aircraft in the future (ala their 1/48 Bf 109G-6).
