Hi All, 1st time posting a kit on here.......

Here's my take on Salffner's FW190A8 he flew as CO of 7./JG300 in Germany, 1945.

It's Eduard's 190A8 boxing pretty much OOTB with the exception of the homemade loop & radio aerials & Pitot tube.

The Würger is finished in a late war RLM83 Mottle scheme over the fuselage RLM 76. The wing surfaces depict a RLM75/83 scheme. Tamiya & Gunze acrylics were used, with oils & a touch of pigments for weathering. The RLM83 is a little greener in these pics than in the flesh, with a light mottle of RLM 82 here & there. The decals used are as supplied by Eduard. One source states that the odd black drop tank was left over from JG300's "Wilde Saü" operations.

As I hadn't really tackled a 190' before, many thanks to Jamie Degenhardt & Ralph Riese for the technical advice & the lend of some decent reference material!

This is hands down one of the best Eduard 190's I've seen. Very clean assembly and a fantastic color finish.

 

May I ask you how you made the brackets for the brake lines? This detail jumped right at me. :thumbsup2:

Hi Torben, Very easy indeed, they're just formed from blobs of white canopy glue - you can manipulate the blobs while its drying to get a "bracket/P clip" shape. Add some paint, and presto.

 

 

Jeroen: Feel free to steal away! I thought it may have been a "bit over the top" myself........

 

Glad you like!

Hey Bevan, glad you like her, the green is Gunze's RLM 83 mixed with a touch of RLM 82 here & there, then weathered with Mig oil's "Olive Green" mixed with a bit of white. I try to make every panel a little different. Very handy colour to have in the stash....

 

Regards,
