Just arrived. Tore into it like a ravening wolf.
A more detailed review will be up at M2 next week. But right off, the surface detail is amazing, more petite even than the recent Fw-190 and Tempest, if such is possible. For those who say "yeah,[...]
the Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat came on the scene too late to serve the U.S. Navy in WW11.. they were on the carriers halfway across the Pacific when the war with Japan ended...it was the fastest thing Grumman ever came up with to that point and pil[...]
Greeting, iModelers. A week ago I road tripped down to McMinnville, Oregon with some friends to see the air and space museum. There is a modest but nevertheless impressive collection there of aircraft across the history of flight, from a 1:1 mod[...]
Yet another oldie!
This is Otaki's 1/48 FW-190A-8 that I originally started as just a 'paint mule' to try out a paint mix. One thing lead to another and, well, here you are.
I added details to the cockpit, belts from aluminum tape and solde[...]
Eduard 1/48 Fw 190 A-8 (old mold).
I first saw “The Longest Day” as a 14-year-old airplane nut when the movie first came out in 1962. The scene showing Pips Priller’s D-Day strafing run on SWORD Beach has stayed with me since. In honor of the 75[...]
I wanted to do something relaxing, so I grabbed this old Monogram FW-190 from the stash in my garage. It also fits my keep-it-simple modeling philosophy. My plan is to build it mostly out-of-the-box and just concentrate on a decent build and [...]
Hampden TB.1 (AD852) UB-N - of 455 Squadron, RAAF Leuchars, Scotland, 2nd June 1943. Great angle to see that distinctive Hampden shape.
And above, same aircraft and day, in flight.
On June 2nd, 1943, one of the mos[...]
Fw-190Aa-3 of Turkish Air Force (additional "a" means ausländisch). Turkey received up to 100 airplanes in 1942-43 as a result of a barter deal. Fw-190 were in service till the 1950, being the last German fighter used by TAF.
It's a Zvezda "ea[...]
Hi everybody, After a long abstinence I am back today with the type model, which I think I know best. I have dedicated myself to the "weekend kit" of the FW-190 A5 from Eduard in 1/72 and added a set of etched parts to it.
I have used the relati[...]
Hello, guys! The "Dora", or Fw-190 D-9, has been one of my favorite aircrafts. This particular machine ("brown 4") is a bit unusual, but famous, in that it was one of few Doras that were attached with the vertical stabilizer designed for Ta152. [...]
