Hobby boss FW190-A8
Hi All, me again, well i dug the little camera out and did some snaps they are not all as clear as i would like them to be and some are clearer than i would like you know what they say about the camera it never lies well actually it can but thats a whole different story,
anyway here is my Hobby Boss 1/72 snap together FW190-A8 pretty much the same as the Corsair built in no time at all, the odd bit of Mr Surfacer here and there job done bring on the paint usual paints of choice Mr Aqueous Colour completely painted by free hand no masking at all ( im getting brave now iv got away with it a few times ) except the canopy which was done quite badly the rear of the canopy masking is a bit ehm wonky and the only other little faux pas was that for some reason the decal forming the red band near the tail wasn’t quite long enough so i thought no probs ill just infill with a bit of red paint so next job was to line up both sides of the red band so they matched, then sod’s law stepped up i could not get the decal to budge so if you look on the underside photo you can easily make out the miss alignment but hay ho its underneath so who cares,
This was done as one of my eBay sale aircraft but i didn’t have the heart to sell it i thoroughly enjoyed doing this one and it kinda looked at home in the display cabinet and i really liked it
hope you like it more to follow
