Almost completed: Butcher over the Steppes

This article is part of a series:
  1.   Almost completed: Butcher over the Steppes
  2. Now completed: Butcher bird over the Steppes

Inspired by a recent Iron Works from @lgardner, the thought of painting free hand one of those green/brown schemes the german fighters used on the east front during the warm months made me get the brand new 190 A-5 from Eduard.
The review Tom Cleaver made of this kit is spot on because having built Tamiya, Hasegawa and DML kits none offers the simplicity, accuracy and ease of build all in the same box…furthermore i find the profipack less expensive than all the aforementioned kits in my domestic market.

The model is almost completed, but because having no Superglue available (last tube was completely dry) the seat belts positioning refrain the completion of the model. sINCE i’ll be away for a short holidays I won’t be completing it until then.

Markings on the wings are painted, and fuselage codes and crosses are decal from a Kagero book. Hope you enjoy!

  1. A paint scheme not often seen…..I like it.

  2. Beautiful work, Pedro. It’s a fantastic kit for sure.

  3. Now that’s an attractive model! Well done, Pedro.

  4. Great work, Pedro! VERY nice.

  5. Very interesting. Nice job build and paint job.

  6. Pedro, Very nice, I like it a lot. I need to get this kit, or a few !

  7. I agree Pedro ……….. This is a very good looking FW. It reminds me of a plane very similar to one flown by Emil Lang from JG 54…………… You captured the look very well, and it’s one of the paint schemes I plan on eventually building when I get an A-5 back in the stash. The A-8 version I built as an “Otto Kittel” plane doesn’t have the tan color in the paint which is what sets these Birds apart from the others………………….

    I still don’t have very easy access to Eduard kits from our somewhat “Local” hobby store, so I may have to break down and order one online. These new Eduard kits look to be very promising.

    I am pleased that one of my “Iron Werks” builds inspired you to build this one. Hearing that really made my day. Thank you very much !!!!! Now I need to get the rest of the builds posted from that “Iron Werks” episode…………… You may have just inspired me to do that. Thank you my friend.

    I like this one a LOT !!!! Well done.

    Enjoy your holidays, and safe travels.

  8. Thank you all for the comments, glad you like it

  9. Excellent build! I really like that scheme – have never seen it before that I remember on a 190.

  10. That is one of the nicest looking 190’s I have come across in a while. Love the Camo.

  11. Great scheme, difficult to do, brilliantly done.
