This was a co-build with a fellow Tulsa Modelers Forum member Paul W. He built the Fw-190 which I promptly took apart by removing all flying surfaces, wings and engine. The Trumpeter low sided rail car was the basis of this topic. While touring the USAF Museum, I saw a picture on the wall depicting 190’s in low sided rail cars in a rail yard in Austria that inspired this build.

After building a fixture to hold the 190 in the railcar, I fabricated the tarp from a Kleenex then airbrushed.
I had a lot of fun with this build. Thanks to Paul W. for his donor ‘bird’.

  1. Outstanding work, Kurt!

  2. Very imaginative! Looks great. Trains and planes nice combo.

  3. Now that’s something you don’t see evry day. Nicely done Kurt. I noticed the rail car is 1/35, so what scale did you use for the FW-190?

  4. Looks just as good on iModeler as it did at the TMF meeting! You have a knack for coming up with creative project ideas. Well done!

  5. Nicely done Kurt. Looks like it was a fun project.

  6. Glad to see you sharing your top notch work on iModeler. Seems like you’ve got an Arado they’d love to see…

  7. Awesome build, the tarp looks legit. Well done Kurt, love it!
