Hasegawa 1/32 FW 190 D-9 Jabo
I have an ongoing and serious infatuation with a few different planes from the Luftwaffe 190s and 109s, He 111 and He 219 etc.etc.etc. I found this on eBay for a real nice price, almost half the retail so I jumped on it. There are few differences in the Hasegawa kits of one model of aircraft and the other but this one has a newly molded fuselage, an engine plug since there isn’t an engine in the kit, a choice between two canopies and a resin bomb.
So in order to go the route of not building OOB I chose a set of decals from Eagle Editions and attempted to replicate Hans Dortenmann’s red 1. From what I gather this plane has quite the history with Hans and had changed squadrons a few times. I suppose that this is the last 190 that he flew. I only say that because I really didn’t do too much research in his history.
Well, here it is, although I should have really paid attention to some details as I got close to completion. I hope that you like it.
