Eduard 1/48 Focke Wulf Fw190A-8

Remarkably the model is built and didn’t end up as landfill so apart from the canopy and windscreen needing masking, it is up to the painting stage;

It will definitely not be a competition winner but at least it is done. I haven’t gone berserk on detailing it either, preferring to use what was supplied in the box as for me it’s good enough these days. As for the remaining Eduard Fw190’s I have in the stash (apart from the later re-tooled A-8), these will probably be going onto Ebay as I really can’t face battling them anymore. Shame really as I wanted a couple more Fw190 A’s and D’s for the collection but there ya go, until somebody brings out a new tool range of Fw190’s in 1/48 with the level of Eduard detail and Tamiya fit of parts it’s not going to happen.

The plan for next week then is to get both the Fw190A-8 and D-9 painted plus get the decals on the Airfix 1/48 Spitfire XIVc. The two Fw190’s share the same underside colour (RLM 76) so it makes sense to spray them at the same time while the colour is in the airbrush.

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.

  1. Andy, thank you. Thank you for sharing your struggles along with your successes. So many times I’ve seen others post model after model, breezing through them as if there was nothing to it. Seeing that over and over is very discouraging for me. But you bring honesty and reality to your site. It is refreshing and I for one really appreciate it. Thank you.

    1. Many thanks and I am very glad you like my blog. The main reason for posting my work is hopefully to help others who are building or planning to build the kits I do and avoid the pitfalls.
