Tamiya 1/72 FW 190
I very much enjoy building Tamiya kits. Their ease of construction allows me to get to the part of modeling I enjoy most: painting and weathering. In this case I share my build of Tamiya’s 1/72 Focke Wulf Fw-190 A3.
The kit went together so well I needed no putty and very little sanding to smooth seams. I used Model Master paints for the RLM 74, 75, 76 camo scheme, adding about 15% white to each color for scale effect. I airbrushed the camo freehand with my Sotar 20/20. This was the first time I used my new Sotar and it worked like a charm. Pastel chalk powder was used to add some exhaust stains.
I found this to be a very satisfying build.
