This is something that I have been meaning to do for a while... I'm finally posting the last FW 190 from the series of four planes that I built for the Kasserine Pass Group Build. Thanks again Dave Thomas, @davidathomas

Staying hot on the heels of these FW-190 postings, I'll add another one of my recent builds... lets keep it rolling!

I like dioramas that tell a story, catch an important snapshot of time, or freeze the possibilities of our futures in one fleeting moment.
I started this build as something of an answer to a challenge to build some armour, and that grew into[...]
This is the second or third Academy kit I've built, and I have to say, I really like the detail and engraved panel lines on them. I did no scratch building on this - the only add was the resin tropical filter. I did drill out the gun barrels a[...]
