Focke Wulf Fw-190 Trimaster 1/48th scale Luftwaffe WWII
May 15, 2013 in Aviation
This Butcher Bird is older than the B-26K, built around 92, it was my first attempt on building a rather complicated Trimaster kit. Reading a review in Scale Modeler pointed out some of the fussiness in the project. But in the end a satisfying one. No AM stuff needed for this kit, PE parts were supplied, white metal landing gear. The decals are from the kit itself. This was also my 2nd attempt on a Luftwaffe scheme, learning how to paint the mottling effect is much better than the previous attempt. The RLM 76 Lichtblau, RLM 75 Grau and RLM 74 Dunkel Grau scheme was applied using Aeromaster Acrylics. (excellent paint, sprayed very well out of the brush) I miss them. The formula was from Polly S. Different from today’s Polly Scale, (which is now really Testor ). Flat white for the tail and RLM 02 for the interior and wheel bays. Got this kit at an airshow at a great price. And now haven’t seen one in quite awhile, now I believe under the DML/Dragon label. Thanks for viewing.
