FW-200 Condor, Revell 1/72
November 27, 2014 in Aviation
I finished her some time ago, but I was too lazy to show progress on In progress discussion group. It was relaxing project despite its size, only aftermarket used was Eduard masks for windows. Kit has a lot of fine details inside that can be shown if anyone chooses option not to glue two segments of the roof around the turrets. With several dry fitting and sanding passes large wings will join easily and almost no filler will be necessary.
I sanded the front upper turret for 1,5mm since originally it seems to sit too high. Better prepare nice references since instruction sheet has a lot of errors like some of the variants provided are not well described, deciding which windows to mask, no instructions for stencil placements etc.
Following colors were used Gunze RLM 02, RLM 66 for inside. Lower surfaces Gunze RLM 65, upper cammo Model Master authentic RLM 72 and RLM 73, propellers RLM 70 and Henschel bombs RLM 02. Finish is Tamiya gloss cote before decals, MIG Luftwaffe wash, and Gunze semi gloss finish.
Radar antennas are very fine and nicely molded, but they are still quite thick, so etched ones would be good option.
