    Here is my first build log as I said before but in a new topic because I’ve posted it on the wrong section.
    To star off i want to share my build steps and also my comments about the build and the kit.
    As usual I’ve begin with the cockpit. Because this kit is a weekend edition from Eduard it does not comes with the pe set as you know oob. details of the kit is pretty good I can say especially with a little scratch building or a pe set you can have a decent engine oob. also if you want tho show off the engine you have to scratch some interior detail for the hatches on the cowling.
    This is my first Eduard kit and also first fw190 kit i am a huge fan of fw190 so i also have some other variants form Eduard in my stash.
    For the build cockpit is pretty straight forward, and only details I’ve add is some cushion for the seat made from tamiya two part epoxy and some seatbelts made from lead sheet and some brass wires.
    The fuselage halves are closed also the landing gear bay is assembled I want to point out something here before I start a kit that I am not familiar with i like to check some build reviews and videos of it and I’ve seen that some modelers have problems with meeting the wing halves together because of the inner structure parts. Luckily it went pretty smooth for me since I’ve given extreme care to aligning the inner structural parts. enough talk for today here are some pics goodnight modelers.

    I’m on board, Aldican – great start. And we all live double lives, my friend. Some of us just don’t know it.

    Thank you David

  • Adilcan Topgül said 9 months, 2 weeks ago:

    Nothing too fancy today. Fuselage is mainly complete and the bird is %99 ready to paint also inside the landing gear bay and inside of the landing gear doors are painted with rlm gray goodnight.

    Aldican, that was fast. Did you had any troubles getting the engine covers align, and also the wing/fuselage join? Have read several complaints about those areas.
    Yours is looking good, with a nice fit, at least no putty I can see.

  • Adilcan Topgül said 9 months, 2 weeks ago:

    Wing /fuselage joint was pretty neat you just have to take your time with it. As for the engine covers fit between the covers and the rest of the fuselage is not the smoothest ive seen and i just used a tiny tiny drop of filler here and there

  • david leigh-smith said 9 months, 2 weeks ago:

    That’s a great looking 190, Adilcan. Beautifully done soft line between the camo colours.
