1/48 Hobby Boss FW190D-11

This was a rather quick build. It is the easiest FW-190D series model I've built. Not mistake filled like the Tamiya D-9 which requires a lot of aftermarket or mods or a complicated headache to build like the Eduard D series.

Definitely recommend the HB series for anyone who likes the long nose Wurger.

I didn't like the rather bland options that came with the kit and ordered the Eagle Cals Doras of the Galland Circus set and picked #4 which is quite a popular/common option for a D-11 Wurger. I know why as #4 is quite colorful and striking with the stripes, yellow/black spinner and RLM82/83 mottling. The white stripes were masked on as I prefer to mask than use decals for certain things. Yes, I know they're uneven, but that is part of the charm I think as the white stripes were like D-Day stripes (roughly outlined and painted.)

Only aftermarket part I used was an Ultracast seat with seatbelts. Everything else was straight from the box which is quite unusual for me, but I really wanted an easy build.

  1. That's a good-looking Dora! Well done.

  2. Excellent result. I think the HB Doras are the best out there right now.

  3. Very nicely done! Great catch about the underbody stripes. A lot of folks think they are pristine and even spaced...Not. Attached is my Rot 13, 1/48 Eduard Overtrees and EaglCals.
