Zvezda 1:72 Fw-190 a-4
This is Zvezda's "Snap-fit" 1:72 Fw190 a-4 done in the markings of W.Nr.0601 of 1./JG 1
Amsterdam-Schipol, June 1943.
a good kit in outline and fit. a few minor detail errors (wrong engine cooling vents, late model wheels), but overall a nice kit. i Used BarracudeCast wheels and Quickboost cannon barrels.
Paints were a combination of Gunze and Mr.Color rlm 74/75/76. The Mr. color 74 is decidedly very green, i don't know if this is the correct shade, but i liked the looks of it. i didn't go too crazy on the weathering, some post shading, panel line wash, and silver pencil chipping. i used the profile and pictures on page 471 of Classic Publication's Fw190 Vol. Two 1943-1944. Markings were sourced from different sheets, checkered nose was painted
