1:32 Scale Hasegawa Focke Wulf Fw-190A-5
February 27, 2013 in Aviation
This is one of Hasegawa’s newer kits of this famous aircraft, and one of the fastest models I’ve ever built. I think it took me about a week, maybe a couple days longer from start to finish.
Model was again built OOB, with the only additions being the paper seat belts made from paper strips cut from the instruction sheet, (A little trick I learned from Rafe Morrisey) and the stretched sprue antenna.
Model is painted using Floquil Military Enamels….(Remember them?) in the standard Luftwaffe day scheme of RLM 74/75/76. I still have a bunch of them and, years later, they still rock.
This was a very enjoyable build by the way and another one of those that, if you have not built one, put it on you “to do” list.

The decals are the kit decals and weathering is through thinned oils and pastel chalks.
