Tamiya 1/48 FW190 A8

July 7, 2024 · in Aviation · · 6 · 218

This was a nice easy kit with good fit and few issues. Cockpit is not very detailed so I built it closed.

After some searching I built approximating a plane from II/jg 1 “Oseau” as it was in late 1943 with red rudder, numerals, under engine cowl and red and white spinner.

All paint was Vallejo Air. I free handed the camo instead of masking sharp lines as I read that many were sprayed in the field. I think I like the sharp lines better. Colors were common RLM 75, 76, 77.

As always please overlook my photography lack of skills.

    The red accents over the camouflage are really nice.

  3. Looks great. Good decision to go with JG1 scheme.

  4. I searching in books and online the variety of German color and camo schemes seems almost endless. I thought this one somewhat unique.
