Revell 1/32 FW 190 A-8 / R11 Build

January 7, 2023 · in Aviation · · 16 Comments

Hi all

My first post on any modelling site, so a bit of catching up to do 🙂

I'm not a historian so my modelling will capture mistakes as well as triumphs for me, so to kick off my modelling entry into the social media world I have posted some pictures of Revells 1/32 Fw 190 A-8 / R11. I built this one last year but only now plucking up the courage to post.

I like these Revell kits, enough detail to show from the box but also a good starting block for extra detail if required. Any way fingers crossed for a good reception and to future posts 🙂

  7. That’s one eye catching Wurger! Nice paintwork overall. A splendid first post on the best modelling website @thom.
    One small detail- the size of the swastika, seems a tad under scale

    • Hi Pedro.
      Sadly I damaged the kit decals and after searching in my box of spares found a pair of swastikas. They were on a 1/32 sheet but I did think they looked a bit small at the time. 🙁

  12. Good looking 1/32 scale 190, Guy, welcome to iModeler, a few more photographs would be a nice addition, but I understand models of this size may be difficult to photograph.
