1/48 FW-190D-11, JV 44, “A Wulf in Parrots clothing”
This is the Hobbyboss FW-190D-11 in 1/48. Its a nice kit, with good engineering and crisp, delicate recessed detail. It requires a little modification to be an accurate D-11 (mis-located wing guns, no upper or lower wing bulges, upper gun cowl bulges needed to be reduced etc.) and a little more detailing in the gear and wheel well area's, but the fit is very nice (almost no putty was sacrificed in the making of this model), and the outline accurate.
As this D-11 had been re-manufactured from an A-8, it retained the mid-war color scheme, and the non-blown canopy.
- The photo of the real aircraft is a D-9, not this D-11, but it shows the color scheme well and is an interesting picture.
Its finished using "Experten" decals and Tamiya acrylics. Weathering is pastels, and oil paints.
