Eduard 1/48 Focke Wulf Fw190D-9

That’s the interior bits painted and the fuselage glued together;

Although I fitted the two machine guns on top, I actually read the instructions and the bit that says;

“Don’t install parts W12, W20,W3 and W27 if you are building the model with the closed fuselage MG hood”

The machine guns (parts W12 and W20) were then removed this morning prior to closing up the fuselage, however parts W3 and W27 stayed as these have the spent cartridge chutes which (should) line up with the two rectangular holes in the lower wing. For that reason the interior parts were not glued into place so that when it comes to fitting the wings I’ll have some wiggle room (and judging by a test-fit of the lower wing I’m going to need it).

I have read some horror stories regarding the fit of parts with this kit but I have to say the fuselage and interior has gone together pretty well so far. Next job will be to paint the wheel bays so I can glue the wings together then join them to the fuselage so we’ll see what the fit of parts is like then.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
