Mistercraft Focke Wulf FW-190 A-8 Rammjager 1/72 “Captive Jaeger”. “Caged Birds” serie

December 22, 2017 · in Aviation · · 8 · 5.4K

Starting this new line of captured warplanes or "caged birds", I let with you my Focke Wulf FW-190 A-8 Rammjager, my Captive Jaeger. I got this design from Pinterest.

What can I say, the kit is not very recommendable, the grooves and details are very shallow and the plastic texture is not nice, like velvet. Worst, ending the project I lost the canopy, so somebody from IPMS-Chile gave me a spare Airfix canopy which didn't matched the kit but what the heck, it is what is is. I cut it, sand it, are there it is. Besides that, was a very fun project. I couldn't find any matching decal in my stash so I painted every one of them. I hope you like it. Next, a Mustang, the Tamed Horse.
