Focke Wulf Fw 190 V-1 Prototype
This is the 1/48 Classic Airframes kit which comprises of resin main parts, metal landing gear legs and tail wheel, 2 well molded very clear vac canopies and decals. The kit was built OOB and painted using Vallejo Metal Colors. The kit is a straight forward assembly and I used 2 part epoxy as an adhesive for the main assembly, cyano for the smaller parts. The kit decals are well done and very thin but they have a tendency to curl. I suggest spraying a thin coat of Future over the sheet to help mitigate this. Also I’d advise against using any setting solutions as they’re not needed. I used plain water with a brush lightly dipped in dish washing liquid to wet the decal placement area. The dish liquid stops the waters surface tension and provides a slippery finish to help with decal positioning. The clear decal film is virtually invisible when dry. This could be a good candidate for a first resin kit to those that haven’t tried one.
