Tamiya 1/48 Focke-Wulf FW-190F-8

Recommended Posts

Finished this one up this a.m. Painted with Tamiya acrylics, as well.Excuse the spurious smoke rings, I claim artistic license and fun.

Some things I added were:

PE seat harness.
Drilled out the cowling guns.
Replaced wing cannons with blunt-tipped syringe needles.
Added gun camera lens and wingtip nav lights from PVA glue.
"Invisible Thread" antennae wires.
Added brake lines from small gauge wire.
Replaced pitot tube with Albion Alloys tubing.
The bomb is from the bottom of the spares drawer.
Oleo struts covered with Bare Metal Foil.

Great looking Butcher Bird James! As for the camo, I used to have a similar scheme built from the old Otaki kit, so I don't think you're far off. Congrats!

That's highly reminiscient of the Monogram desert option I built back in the day; the Farbton Polizei would approve! Got to try the oleo treatment on my next build...
