Hobby Boss 1:48 Scale Focke-Wulf Fw-190D-9, Jerry Crandall GB
Hobby Boss 1:48 Scale Focke-Wulf Fw-190D-9.
Markings are those of Oblt. Hans Dortenmann, who was the highest scoring German pilot while flying the 'Dora'. He was in command of 3/JG26 and flew this aircraft from April 1944 till the war ended.
The kit itself is not a bad little kit. It went together quite well. Detail is nice and everything lined up without too much fuss.Very little seam work was needed, which made me a VERY happy boy!
I did try a few new things with this kit. The model is built straight from the box, sans decals, which are from Eagle Editions. Nothing wrong with the kit's, I just liked these aftermarket stuff and I built the model as part of the Jerry Crandall GB here. They were great and responded well with Micro Set/Sol backed up with a little Walther's Solvaset. For the weathering I used MIG weathering pencils, thinned oils, pastel chalks, and I found this stuff from the UK, Floury Washes. Stuff is fabulous!
Anyway, nice kit and a decent build, good bang for the buck, and I recommend it.
