Posted by Wolfman_63 on Saturday, April 07, 2018 8:56 AM

Working on a 1/48 FW-190A-8 from Eduard. I will be using Cartigraf's Top Color # 38 decal set. Started on the main cockpit last night. Mostly assembled, just need to do some weathering/highlighting. More build photo's at https://davidsscalemodels.com/build-log/fw-190a-8/

 

 

Scheme I am going to use:

The snake 190.... very nice. I look forward to your progress. Just curious, why the lighter colored seat?

The seat is a lighter color based on historical photo's for the FW-190's that flew in the same group (3./JGr 10) around Parchim Germany in 1945.

I now have the fuselage together. I would like to state a word of caution. Do not assemble the firewall/gun bay per the instructions. You need to put the fuselage together then assemble the gun bay in pieces to get it to fit. You will need to tape the lower wing so you can align the dump chute from the ammo boxes to the ports on the lower wing. I had to cut the back wall off and do some trimming to fit it properly. Still need to do some sanding and paint touch up. While I was letting the fuselage set I started on the lower wing. It does have some nice details so far.

Interesting.....I'll have to remember that for future 190s.

The fit issues just keep coming with this kit. I attached the wings and there were many gaps to the rear wing root. Lots if filling and sanding. The engine is now together and installed. This is turning into a good/bad. Fit issues but the detail of things appears good.  Working on the cowl now. Doing a dry fit of the cowl has revealed that the cowl guns are 1.5mm too high. Need to do some trimming and adjustments to get the cowling to fit properly. More photo's at https://davidsscalemodels.com/build-log/fw-190a-8/

This one is quite tricky indeed.  That engine looks great!

Well I must say this kit has been a challenge but it came out pretty good. The Cartigraf decals are awesome. Here are the final photo's. You can see the entire build at https://davidsscalemodels.com/build-log/fw-190a-8/
