This is a great fitting kit, done as Hans "Assi" Hahn's for the 190 "Butcher Bird" GB.

Reasoned.......it looks pretty good. I know it is had to get the radio wire taught. What I try to do is play with the canopy leaving it open a small amount to mount the wire and then closing it up after.

Yeah, I'm thinking of reworking that, it's nylon line and I put some heat up to it but it didn't snap taught...... like I thought.

That's a nice 190.  Glad to see it builds up in a nice kit as I grabbed one on my last outing.  Smile

Can't advise you on the aerial wire.  I'm using some rubber line that's made for bead-stringing.  It's called "Stretch Magic" and is 0.5 mm thick.  Because it's rubber, it can be stretched a little to fit, then taped and glued into place. Seems to work well as a radio aerial.  Not sure if 0.5mm is too thick for the wire, but it looks okay.

Again, well done on the FW!

Thats a beautiful FW 190 bro and your RLM colors are spot on.  I hate those antennas wires, I'm truly loust at them.  Thats why I never add them.

Hmm

Hmm.... now that's tempting for the future.  Big Smile

Thanks again for the compliments and advice fellas.  I just want to build a good model, not event winners (since I've never even been to one) but just get better and have fun.  Now if I can get my paint to look half as good as yours Joe.

Nice work Reasoned. Nice to have you back here. You captured the nice look of the early 190A for sure. Nice paint colors and the mottle looks nice on the fuselage. There's really no right or wrong in mottling camo because no two schemes are alike. I'd say build another 190, maybe a Hasegawa one. You won't regret it.

Thanks Nathan, will do on that 190 build idea but I got my eye on the Tamiya Dora..... the fit on the A-3 was so good I figure the Dora couldn't be too bad either.
