Eduard Fw 190 A-8: An Arctic Wurger
My last build of 2019 is the excellent 190A-8 in 1/48 scale from Eduard, released sometime this year.
I had been waiting for this kit ever since the first A-4 version was launched, for so far (and probably for a long time) no other late version radial 190 will be as good as this kit is.
Built OOB with 3 exceptions (guns from Aber; Decals from Sky Decals and Xtradecals and wheels from Bregun) used very little PE since I prefer the basic plastic to enhance with careful painting.
Plane representes Rudy Artner’s Weiss 10 from the Eismeer Geschwader, the JG 5, and is my own interpretation from the BW photos available online. 74/75 over 76 from Gunze, 81 (late version) streaks from real colors, and the yellow 04 from MRP.
Still need to add the aerials but no time left until January 2nd, and I really wanted it to be complete still this year.
Hope you like it, wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
