yes It is an older kit I think from the 70s when such things were tolerated.

As usual,the 3M Automotive Spot Putty dealt with the Seams after wet sanding with 320 grit wet/Dry sandpaper.

Decided to go with the black 5 paint scheme.Painted the airframe light blue ,although it was not really necessary to paint the upper wing surfaces,which will receive the dark green/black  green cammo   .

Yeah, that's looking really good! Sad to say, but I remember seeing that box on the store shelves! I could never buy it though, it was worth a couple weeks allowance.

The FW-190 is looking great!  Old kit but in the hands of a master modeler it's turning into a real gem.

Nearing completion but the canopy sections were missing from the kit ,so it will be delayed if I can even find a replacement canopy.

It looks great. Good luck with the canopy. Id like to see this one finished. Ever since I started building Ive been a dedicated 1/48 builder... now Im older and my eyesights taking a dump so I may be switching to 1/32 soon...  If I ever manage to get my current stash done that is.
