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.
