Revell Germany 1/72 FW 190 F8/R14
Just finished past week, an old mold that required some care to improve it. As you can see I made use of several resin additions and a vacuum-formed canopy that required a lot of adjustment to make it fit, I scratch built several details not included in the kit to make the model conform to the F8/R14 prototype, markings and colors are a best guess taking into account the information provided in the Valiant Wings book and the Revell instructions and I used Wet Transfers for most of them. Unfortunately Revell molded the undercarriage legs without the proper leaning inwards but I can live with them since this is a very unusual configuration of the famous Butcher Bird that I´m adding to my collection. And it waited for many years in the stash to finally see the light, some of you may have built this kit before and might notice the changes and additions done.
