Hi guy's,

 

This one's been sitting on the bench for a while now so I thought I'd continue on and finish it. So many great schemes for these birds it makes it very difficult to choose one so I haven't yet, though have a couple in mind. An out of the box build aside from being fully riveted lead foil seat harness and brass tubing gun barrels.

Kit instrument decal was cut and each gauge added separately using micro scale set and sol. No problems.

Paints used so far are all Gunze thinned with gp thinner. Washes are oils. Chips are sharp Derwent pencils and xf16 flat aluminium enamel toned down with white oil paint and 2b grey lead. Seat harness made from lead foil with buckles from fuse wire. the were painted Tamiya buff, washed with oils and the edges painted with lightened buff for some high lights. Final flat coat is Testors Dull Coat. Straps added to the rudder pedals with masking tape.

I added some extra pipe work to the engine plug as I thought it looked a little sparse taking this idea from a mag article I read years ago. Not sure of the silver I used but more than likely xf flat aluminium acylic washed with black and burnt umber oils and dabbed off with a rolled up piece of rag. The numbers are black prismacolour pencil

A 50/50 mix of Tamiya xf22 grey and Gunze H70 RLM02 was used for all these parts. High lights are straight H70.Flat coat here is also Dull Coat.

 

Cheers and thanks for looking Bevan.

OOH! I am getting the itch to pull one of these out of my stash. Built my last one in the 80's SOB for a friend. Recently heard from his son that it was totaled by a California earthquake. This time I will have HGW seatbelts, a resin cockpit and Master barrels!

The supercharger intake isn't a one piece unit so I added some stretched sprue and stabbed at it with a number 11 blade to simulate a weld line. then I sanded it down a little to look like it was ground back a little.

I normally use Gunze acrylics but a little Tamiya was used as well, the photos are a little fuzzy I must need glasses.

 

Thanks for looking, cheers Bevan

What a fascinating color scheme.  Is that RLM81 on the undersurfaces of the wings?   Never seen that before.  Also, what color is used on the uppersurfaces of the wings - RLM76 or RLM77?

 

Any links to pics of the real thing?  I'd love to get more info on this aircraft.

Nice, was the green-blue RLM 76 out of the bottle or a custom mix?

Hey Mike, the green/blue 76 is a custom mix.

 

Gunze H74 sky (duck egg green) 1ml

 

Tamiya XF2 flat white 12 drops

 

Tamiya XF12 jn grey 2 drops.

 

Thats the basic colour, I also used the h74 in random spots as well as the xf 12 all well thinned.

 

Hope this helps

 

Cheers Bevan

Hi John, going off assumptions out of Japo's Vol 2 Focke-Wulf Fw 190D camouflage and markings, I could of used RLM 83 instead of the 81 but chose not to. Japo also allude to a lot of d9's having a high contrast upper wing scheme of 76 and one of the darker camo colours in this case the 81 but yes its 76 on top.

 

Sadly I dont have any links

 

Cheers Bevan

Hi Guy's. I've moved on to the weathering stage now, starting with the sooty exhaust stains. Tamiya xf85 rubber black and xf9 hull red were used being well thinned. I usually go overboard with the staining so I tried to keep it restrained by my standards.

A coat of clear sealed it all in. Next I used oils, black and burnt umber mixed fairly thin. Photos show a build up of gunk and stuff around the stiffeners and rivet lines, so this is what I concentrated on darkening it up closer to the exhausts.
