Under New Management...1/48 Focke-Wulf Fw190A-4 Soviet Airforce

January 13, 2021 · in Aviation · · 6 · 1.7K

Built in 2017.

On January 13th 1943, Unteroffizier Helmut Brandt of 2./JG54 was forced down by fighters and he made a crash landing on the frozen Lake Ladoga where he became a POW. The Soviets restored the aircraft to airworthy condition, tested and evaluated it.

Until now my dad has built a bunch of 190ies and fit and quality was always good. This time he used the limited Graf A-4 edition but this kit couldn´t keep up to Hasegawa´s usual standard. Nevertheless my dad finished it. JG54 decals and Russian stars from the sparebox, EZ Line for aerials, plastic rods and lead wire for brake lines, painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics.
