  5. Enjoyed the extra photos - very lovely build!

  6. This model is really nicely done, and your skill is obviously first-class, but allow me give you some useful information for future 190 projects.

    Only the early Fw-190A-1 and A-2 were all painted RLM 71/02/65. Early production Fw-190A-3s were also painted with these colors. Once production went beyond the original Focke-Wulf factory, all Fw-190As from the mid/late production A-3 came from the factory in RLM 74/75/76.

    • Thanks for that Tom
      I'm no aficionado when it comes to WWII Luftwaffe stuff. When this model was painted, several years ago, I only had black and white photos for reference and a profile in an old Squadron "In action" book. I also think that the yellow and red colours on the prop spinner may be incorrect. Anyway, what's done is done, as they say.
