1/48th Focke wulf 190D-9
The counterpart of the British Tempest not only in performance, but also with a resolute stance which is well retained in the 1/48th model. Yet, maximum effect is achieved if the radiator flaps are in the open position.
I present here four Doras of which three are Eduard's and one of Dragon. The more the finished model looks like the real aircraft I may find myself repeating the topic. Already, some twenty Doras accummulated in my collection. Interestingly, the 1/72nd and 1/32nd scale models of the kind do not trigger the same realism effect on me.
Here is a tip to deal with your aging models that may have yellowing decals. I use oil paints with fine brush over the yellow decals. The texture of oil paints is sublime because it allows gradual transition of color hues with no brush traces left. Mistakes can be wiped out with any blunt tool and no solvent is required.
