Here’s my second entry here, this time a combo build using one source of decals, Exito sheet# 48004 – “Luftwaffe ground attackers vol.1”
– The first is a semi started Henschel 129 B-2 using the Revell box of the best 1/48 model for this plane, the Hasegawa mould
It’s option #2 of the decal sheet I’ll be using, because it features some artwork and victory marks that are rather unique. Other than that it’s a pretty standard camouflaged Henschel
I’m using a few AM goodies, like PE, turned brass gun and resin radio compartment.
-the second Schlact plane is the brand new Eduard FW.190 F-8
Got the kit just now and can’t help but praise the quality of the box artwork and new frame, it just oozes a premium feel to the kit, well done Eduard!!
It’s true that the price tag increasead in excess of 10% over their last Spitfire kit (profipack boxes), some 4 euros higher, but I still think it’s well worth what you pay. If you read one of my past builds of these new FW190s you’ll understand why.
The option #3 in Exito decal sheet is the one I’ll use on her
I have the highest regard for Exito research of the subject, top tier stuff, but I think they got some color details wrong on this one. As a disclaimer this is my personal opinion based on the single B&W photo I know of this particular plane, and so the finished model will reflect my interpretation as such.
