1/32 Hasegawa Fw-190D9 "Blue 4" from JG26
Posted by Hasenpfeffer on Wednesday, August 24, 2022 3:15 PM

Hi everyone! It's been almost 10 years since I last posted anything in these FSM forums... yeah, I know. Anyway, I have mostly built armor in the past, but have done a few wingy things in the last couple years. Back in March 2021 I built this Dora that could be considered plasticjunkie's Blue 2 twin. IIRC, it was built straight from the box. I used AK Real Colors on this one for the main RLM76/75/81 (?) scheme. I'm thinking now I should have kept a few notes... Anyway, it is a made-up, probably was aircraft. WNr is also obviously not legit. So, enjoy, critique, whatever.

Thanks, LD. I appreciate the comment. Been lurking around over the years, just never had time to post anything. I have a Fw-190A8 that I built before this one to post and also a 1:48 Bf-109E3. So, stay tuned.

For some reason the pictures were blank for a while but can see them now. Beautiful paint and subtle weathering.

Too many models to build, not enough time in a lifetime!!

Gotta love a Dora. Looks great. How do you like the AK real colors?

Thanks, Hoss. Well, I don't have the best point of reference. I've been kind of converting to lacquer based paints lately as I like their durability, especially when endlessly masking stuff off. (I painted all of the national insignia/markings on this one - using HGW wet transfers for most of the stencils.) I'll say that I've used AK RC and MRP, both with good results. I did a Fw-190A8 prior to the D9 with MRP and I think I like the colors better from AK. It really came down to preference and thinning the AK paints correctly. AK seemed to have more variety within the RLM paint schemes with different versions representing a relative time period it was possibly in use. (e.g., I have 3 different RLM 76 versions; 1, 2 and late war.) Anybody with reasonable mixing talent wouldn't care as they can create the desired color anyway. But again, I've just started dabbling in this stuff as I've painted most of my armor models with Tamiya acrylics for-ever.

* I thinned the AK RC with Mr Leveling Thinner until I got the consistency I wanted.

** AK RC for the overall scheme, MRP for the markings

Thanks for the encouragement PJ. As of right now, I'm still too timid to venture too far into the weathering. My fear of just outright effing it up at that stage is high. LOL - thus the subtleness.
