Eduard 1/48 Fw 190D-9

WIP: Eduard 1/48 Fw 190D-9, Klaus Faber’s “Rot 13”, JV44 Platzshutzstaffel. Using EagleCals#14 for markings but decided to paint the stripes instead of using the provided white stripe decals. Red tends to bleed through white decals and by then it would be too late to fix if they didn’t work. Plus, I like painting. It looks a bit bright but should tone down after washes and weathering. Stand by…

  1. Hi Tom. I am a nut about JG44. I have a 1/32 Schwalbe that I plan on building soon (ish) and adding to my ‘Red1’ that I posted last year. I’ve put a link below, mainly because there are some great suggestions regarding suggested reading, especially around Galland.

    Great to see a fellow fan of the ‘parrot’ squadron, and look forward to seeing your finished work.

  2. Lookin’ good right now, my friend.

  3. Love a good “Parrot” scheme! I’ll be watching this.

  5. Thanx for the WIP shots. It helps other modelers with their builds!

  6. Should be something really special when you’ve finished it.
