Hasegawa 1/32nd Fw190A-6
December 9, 2012 in Aviation
Here is Oblt. Georg Schott’s “Weise 11”, Staffelkapitaen of 1./JG-1 while based at Deelen, Holland in the autumn of 1943. This one also has the Eagle Editions propeller & spinner, cowl gun cover, and wheels. I also used the RB Productions pilot harness. Flight control surfaces were cut with a Tiger Saw, repositioned, and the stick and rudder pedals adjusted accordingly. Gun barrels and exhausts drilled out; brake lines and wheels down indicators added from .012 brass wire. Decals for the general markings were from Eagle Strike, the aircraft-specific markings including the black nose checkers were custom made by a friend using the now-OOP Cutting Edge set and an excellent profile from Tom Tullis as a reference.
