Achtung DORA!

February 12, 2019 · in Aviation · · 31 ≡


First of all I want to thank You guys for such a warm welcome and kind words! I'm honoured and very flattered.

So, here's another thing from me. 's 1:48 Fw-190D. The prettier sister of first Focke-Wulf. Well, she's got that something for sure. The kit was weekend edition, I've added HGW seat belts and made cannons from injection needles. Aerial was made out of silicon string for making bracelets - its fibres can be separated to very single cable (?) and its very stretchy. CA glued, marker painted. Tamiya and Gunze made the colours, oil paints and some pigments made weathering. Kit was designed to build it with every possible thing opened, so the fit of closed panels was problematic - file and sanding paper helped. I hope you like the outcome.

Warmest greetings!

    Nicely built and weathered, great job, man!

  5. Hi Dominik. I also adore a Dora. To me she’s far prettier than nasty looking butcher birds; elegant and beautiful. Great job - nice finish, realistic weathering, and lovely detail work.


  6. REALLY well done, Dominik. Your Dora is an elegant beauty. Bravo !

    I LIKE the Butcher Birds, David ... but Dora IS prettier.

  7. Knowing just how problematic this kit is to finish, you've accomplished a great result. Very nice and I like the paint and weathering.

  8. A great model of a beautiful airplane! Nicely done.
