  1. An amazing Wurger, Reinhard, beautiful camo!

  2. Great scheme and weathering, Reinhard.

  3. Another one of my favorite schemes on my favorite Luftwaffe plane.

  4. Another great work by one of our resident master modelers. All good.

  5. I love JG 54 airplanes, there were so many cool schemes to do. No two really alike. Beautiful work on this, especially since it's the 'difficult" Eduard Fw-190.

  6. Another gorgeous LW bird in green and sand!

  7. Splendid 190 Reini, in a very striking paint job too! Congratulations to you and your dad! 🙂

  8. Great work. I did an Eduard JG 54 190 several years back and enjoyed the build
