Tamiya 1/48th Fw190 D-9 Dora, Luftwaffe WWII ETO
First completed model for the new year. Tamiya’s D-9 is an excellent kit. Straight forward build. Added just Eduard’s cockpit zoom set and Eagle Strike Decals for the scheme of RLM 82/83/76. Really like this late camo scheme the Germans used at this point of the war. Using Polly Scale acrylics. RLM 66 for the cockpit, and RLM 02 for the landing gear bays, struts and doors. Also a set of Moskit exhaust manifolds for the engine. As I have had this kit in the stash since the 90’s. I bought the exhausts around that time when they were available. I used Vallejo flat clear, but it leaves more of a satin finish, not quite flat as I would prefer. But it works. I did snap the step off when I had an oopsy but thank God that was the only mishap. Fumble fingers. Any way, one of the planned builds for the year on the board. Next up the F-8. Thanks for viewing.
