1/48 Tamiya Focke Wulf Fw-190 A8R8
This is an old built, but with new taken pictures. The kit was finished with the markings of JG3. This A8R8 flown by Wilhelm Montz in the summer of 1944. The construction of the kit is very easy. Though it has some accuracy problems (like the diameter of the main wheels and the shortness of the main wheel leg) I tried to built it mostly out of the box. Wheels replaced with Eagle Part (EP#6-48) set .
Painting was done with Gunze Sangyo acrylics. Upper surfaces painted to RLM75/74 and underside to RLM76. Mottles on the fuselage sides by free hand airbrushing.
