Focke Wulf 190 F-8 Yugoslav partisan 1/72 Eduard

December 27, 2020 · in Aviation · · 8 · 2K

Hi all

probably the last model finished in this year, Focke-Wulf 190 F-8 airplane captured by Yugoslav forces (Yugoslavia 1945).

The only remaining examples of the Fw190-F-8 of the two preserved, one is located in the Smithsonian Museum in the USA, and the other in the Depot of the Aviation Museum in Belgrade. The plane was captured at the Kovin airport (Serbia). The plane was transferred to the Zemun airport and included in the "Liaison Squadron". The aircraft was used during 1945 and 1946. In 1946 it was withdrawn from use. The model corresponds to the FW F-8 aircraft, factory number 930838, previously part of the Luftwaffe SG-2. It had the old type of cabin cover (flattened), as well as on the A-8.

For me few "first time" things are related to this build: first Eduard model i finished, first time mottling with could be better but i am satisfied with result. Eduard model is beautiful but need a lot attention during build. Decals are from LiftHere, colors Gunze...

I hope you like it.

Best regards and i hope that next year will be better for all of us. Happy modeling

  1. Very nice build, Djordje!
    Could easily pass for 1/48.
    Well done on your first mottling!
    I liked the specific plane's camo, as well as its story.

  2. Great build, Djordje.
    That mottling results is well done.
    Nice story combined with a nice Yugoslavian scheme.

  3. Overall, wonderfully done.
    Mottling not a science...just go for it Nice job on yours.

  4. Airbrush work of this quality, freehand on a 1/72 model is nothing to put down - this is excellent work and a great result, Djordje.

  5. Nicely done Djordje, looks good.

  6. Excellent mottling in 1/72, Djordje! Great subject too!

  7. Those markings really stand out on it, and beautifully painted, especially for the scale.
