Focke-Wulf Fw 190 F-8 (1/72, Eduard)
I have veered into something different when I have picked up Eduard’s 1/72 Fw 190 kit a couple of years back. The purpose was to join a friend’s SIG at the time. Since WW2 is not my main focus, I thought I might take it as an experiment too.
The basic Fw 190 F-8 kit sprinkled with a couple of drop-fit accessories was fun to build. I have used SBS decals and Mr. Paint colors to build (probably) W. Nr. 588412 which served in Hungary during 1944/45 winter, hence the missing wheel covers. This particular airframe was piloted by Gyula Tizekker, who called his aircraft Pöttom (The Little One). Crew chief called the aircraft Bumerang because she always came back from the battle.
The gorgeous display base was beautifully crafted by my dear friend from Minsk, Belarus.
