Tamiya 1/72 Fw 190

Apparently this never posted, but hey, stuff happens.

This is my Fw 190 that I completed about a month ago. I had gotten this as an early christmas gift from my mom, who knew I wouldnt be at her house for christmas, so I tried my best to make this look right. I built it immediately, as there were few parts, but it was very detailed. I am beginning to have a new favorite scale here, lol. The paint job and weathering were off and on over the following months, as other projects, school, and personal things got in the way. But when I finished it, i had never been prouder of a build. I had my first successful clear varnish, my first successful wash, and even my first successful chips. Alot happened with it. At the moment, my mojo is at an all time low, and that’s why I’ve been somewhat inactive here. But after looking at this build again, I’m starting to feel better.

The Focke Wolf 190 is a German single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s and widely used during World War II. Along with its well-known counterpart, the Messerschmitt Bf 109, the Fw 190 became the backbone of the Luftwaffe’s Jagdwaffe (Fighter Force). The twin-row BMW 801 radial engine that powered most operational versions enabled the Fw 190 to lift larger loads than the Bf 109, allowing its use as a day fighter, fighter-bomber, ground-attack aircraft and, to a lesser degree, night fighter. It was a pretty successful aircraft all around.

Thank you for reading, have a nice day!

Ps, if these pics are pixelated, I’m sorry. I have no idea why they keep doing that.

    This happens to be my very favorite WW2 German Fighter, and yours looks good……..I especially enjoyed reading the history behind the type.

    You are definitely making improvements on each one of your builds. Keep it up my friend. The pictures look fine to me, and I didn’t notice any pixelating problems.

    Jordyn … that is one nice looking build, you are showing vast improvements in every model you make. Hopefully you can see it. SLOW and being patient is a virtue in this hobby … having FUN with it … is golden.

  10. Hi, Jordyn,
    I was about youre age when i started modelling. At that time we could afford only for some bare models (without paints and other staff). I had 16 years brake when I took the hobby again. I also tried to inject that to my younger brother (now he is 17 – the age gap between us is 16 years). Now I am finished Mous tank which I’ve got from him (it was partialy glued). You never know when modeling could save youre life.
    BTW nice pice of work you have done. Keep youre spirit and we will support youre effort 🙂
    All Best man.
