Focke Wulf Fw190 A-8 “Winter Camouflage”, 1/72 Academy
Good morning colleagues
Well, this is my first time built aircraft model with using airbrush. this brand new toy is really magical thing to me and I’m hanging all of my after work time with it until late.
So, I passed last 3 years of my short modelling experience with out airbrush. Now having this tool, I’m doing to try every color scheme which never applicable (or very hard to) without using airbrush. first of that list, here’s the winter camo of Fw190
It was hard to choose 1/72 of Fw190 between Academy’s and Airfix’s new tool. Academy’s one was only 5 dollars (vantage from origin country) and quality is not bad at all. Airfix’s new one has best quality and It’s box art of Hungarian Winter Camouflage was really awesome! So, I picked chipper one and made with Winter Scheme 😀
First I painted the common two-tone german camo scheme with tamiya’s acrylics, and I washed and weathered. after semigloss coat I painted white camo lines by freehand with enamel colors. because it’s easy to remove partially with cotton swab.
I put some dirts over landing gear thinking of runway in late winter condition.
Thanks for following!
