Hasegawa FW-190D-9 1/32

My latest build, after seven months of work, Hasegawa’s FW-190D-9 in 1/32. This build represents well known machine W.Nr. 210003, flown by Oblt. Hans Dortenmann.

This was my first build in 1/32, so I had to put maximum effort into detailing because there is so much space to do that, and after working mainly on 1/48 kits I had no excuse.

I have used several upgrade sets from Aires, Eduard, HGW, MDC… Of course, lots of scratchbuilding has been done also (radio, fuel tank, compass, engine wiring, riveting..,)

Hope you like it!

  20. As previously said it is simply marvelous! You are true master. As I see I have to learn a lot about making photos too 🙂 excellent WIP, thank You!

    • Thank you Gabor! It is even greater compliment when it comes from master like you 🙂 I really appreciate it.
      Regarding photos, biggest trick is to use proper lighting, when you have that, you can have good photos even with your mobile phone – like those ones above 😀

  21. Great built, really !

  22. Milan,
    I know modelers that even riding in a simple way are exceptional in painting, making their models magnificent … Others mount magnificently with many additions and even with a simpler paint achieve excellent results. From what I have seen in this DORA, you have both abilities: you are a Master in the assembly and a Master in Painting!
    You have my admiration!
