1/48 Revell Fw 190 A8

Gallery Article by Jens Gerber on May 20 2016



This is a Fw 190 A8 from the reissue of Revell, and a mix of Decals.  For paints I used Gunze Hobby Color RLM are 74/75/81/82/76 used as base colors.  Landing gear bay and parts of the bottom were painted with Alclad Alu Matt, the bomb has Gunze Hobby Color H79.

Although the old Trimaster molds reflect no exact Fw 190 A8, so they are still as a very pretty base.  However, where I like to plunder at Tamiya, these are the pulpit roofs of Late versions, something no manufacturer can better.

The kit is complemented with seatbelts from Eduard and channels for gun barrels.

Otherwise just a fun model.  What is impressive hopefully.
