Good Morning ! Here it is, my little 190
More of this build can be found in the “Work in Progress – Aircraft ” section.
It was a very relaxed build, without problems, this exclude my self made ones:-)
The kit itself is not perfect, some details are crude and the panel lines are a bit heavy, they can take a good load of primer.
The gun barrels are replaced with Master gun barrels, as well the pitot tube, i was amazed, how fine they are. Selfmade seatbelts and a new gunsight were added.
The fan behind the propeller, the loop antenna and the ladder comes from an Italeri 190.
The kit decals are very nice, stencils can be read ! The walkways silvered a bit, after the
The aircraft with the snake motive, is from the “Jagdgruppe 10” based at Parchim, Germany
Autumn 1944, i did not found much of this unit, that belongs to the test centre at Rechlin.
It can be true, that these aircraft carry rocket launchers under the Wings.
I hope you like it
