Built in 2018. Used a A-9 kit, besides kit markings the aircraft number and the Werknummer came from Topcolors 13 "Operation Bodenplatte".
Gunze RLM paints, Ultracast resin seat, EZ Line for the antenna, spinner spirale is painted.

The model shows the aircraft of Unteroffizier Alfred Fritzsche, 4./. He was downed on Jan 1st 1945 during Op Bodenplatte near Ghent. After a belly landing he crashed into a house, was severly wounded and became a POW.

  1. Like this one a lot, and what’s more I don’t think I’ve seen it in model form untill now. Thumbs up

  2. Interesting model. I’ve never seen this particular 190 before. Well done.

  4. Very sharp looking camo scheme.

  5. Awesome 190, Reinhard.

  6. Another beauty! Man, I've love to wander the collection one day to see them all at once...

  7. Not to confuse reality with gaming but I was in the position of Fritzsche many times playing JG-1's Bodenplatte attack in "Aces over Europe" many years ago. I rarely survived. Nice to see someone do such a nice model of a JG-1 aircraft.
