That's looking awesome Joe.  Beautiful work, as usual.  Love the painted cowl stripes.

Cheers,
Mark

Looks awesome Joe, I stopped using Montex after the second set of canopy masks I tried did'nt fit well.

 

Thanks Trey. I see that Maktar has sheets of just insignias,I’ve seen British and US sheets. I’m gonna switch to those I think. They have the consistency of Tamiya tape.

Yes, gorgeous indeed!  I haven’t had much luck with Montex lately myself.  

 

Thanks Mopar. Glad it’s not just me.

Thats the problem!  I have so many other ideas and projects that I dont know when I would even do this! It would be a dual build with my Revell Messerschmit that I have, and I would need to pick up a pair of Luftwaffe pilots....Stick out tongueStick out tongue

I finished this turkey last night.  To recap, It's the new tooled Eduard Fw 190 A-4 in the JG 1 markings of Eberhard Burath in the Spring of 1943.  Burath was not an experten uber ace, but he did manage to shoot down 6 B-17 bombers.  

Other than a few hicupps, this was an enjoyable build.  It's a 1000 times better than their old Anton series. I went completely out of the box, except for the Montex masks.  I used the AK Real Colors set which I'm really starting to love. I think they nailed the RLM colors.  I intend to get more of these sets.  

I hope to try Eduard's A-8 soon.  I even have the markings in mind.

Joe - I take the magazine and go to the forums daily, to gain insight, the chance to learn from others and see excellent models. You and the other advanced modelers that share your knowledge, build information and photos are just the best guys.

This latest 190 is another really well done example of super skills, thanks for the great post and photos. Some good things happen when you get turned loose in your shop.

Another museum quality build. Really like how the weathered yellow turned out. Yours looks just like I’d imagine it to be. Also noticed the missing white stripes on the side insiginia To me what sets your work apart is the consistency of excellence and your willingness to share your techniques which I feel I have greatly benefited from. Thanks for sharing my friend!

Thanks Robert. It’s just a drop or two of red added to the yellow. You noticed the painted over white part of the fusel cross. Nice eye! Note the pic at beginning of the thread, it’s missing or painted over.

Well;

     So Far so Good.You caught my interest. I don't build planes often But BubbleTop Jugs and FW 190 Butcherbirds are my faves. In prop planes the only other one is a P-51. this is as far as Fighters are concerned. Oops! I forgot one, the Supermarine SeaFire! Tanker-Builder
