1/72 Hasegawa FW-190 D-9
February 28, 2013 in Aviation
An end-of-February-addition from me… I got this one from a friend in unpainted condition and after languishing alone in it’s box for a few years I let it be part of my happy Ta-152-family… Big brother was finished before it’s younger siblings!
Kit is almost from the box, I used an absolute minimum (antennae and structure behind pilot’s head) amount of sheet metal from a HUGE Eduard kit that I spent a HUGE amount of money on 🙂 …
Paint is Gunze acrylics and decals are from Aeromaster. I used only the more complicated ones, everything that is single-colour and could be cut from tape was masked and painted. I liked the fact that this machine is a bit unusual in that it has the earlier flat canopy and still retains the mechanism for keeping the antenna wire tight.
(Heavily) weathered using Vallejo acrylics and oils.
