Fw-190Aa-3 in Turkish service (Zvezda 1/72)
Fw-190Aa-3 of Turkish Air Force (additional “a” means ausländisch). Turkey received up to 100 airplanes in 1942-43 as a result of a barter deal. Fw-190 were in service till the 1950, being the last German fighter used by TAF.
It’s a Zvezda “easy assembly” Fw-190A-4 snap kit converted into A-3 version. Turkish version had no 20mm MG 151/20 cannons, so I’ve removed it also. I was using custom masks for national insignia and numbers, rest of the stencils – kit decals.
Camouflage pattern painted freehand using new AK Real Colors paints. Also, I’ve tried black basing and marbling instead of pre-shading. Weathered with oils and pigments.
