1/32 Hasegawa Fw-190A8 8/JG300
Posted by Hasenpfeffer on Thursday, September 8, 2022 3:03 PM

So, here was my 1st attempt at an aircraft in many years. It's Hasegawa's 1:32 scale offering. I know there is a laundry list of things that either didn't go right, or I just plain out didn't do right. I had a heck of a time with the nose/cowling join to the fuselage where Hasegawa decided it was a good idea to have 5 parts all come together. I can see that I forgot to finish trying to fix that... I painted it primarily with MRP, including the markings minus the stencils. I had originall ordered the Eagle Editions decals, but the registration was so poor that I decided to forge ahead in making my own masks. I also added Eduard PE flaps. As much of a pain as it was (for me) it was good soldering practice and is quite a nice upgrade over the kit in the end. I believe I added HGW harnesses. There is basically no weathering.

I'm always surprised I don't see more A8's with this paint scheme.

Thanks for looking, and let me know what you think - good or bad. I'm always up for improving.

I think that you did an awesome job on this FW-190!  The camo scheme looks spot on and I really like the markings' scheme with the serpent going down the side.  A job well done!
