1/48 Trimaster Focke-Wulf Fw-190D-12

'Torpedoflugzeug'

This is my 1/48 Trimaster Focke-Wulf Fw-190D-12 'Torpedoflugzeug'.  These Trimaster kits contain white metal, etch, small brass tubes etc. and I was lucky enough to pick one up cheap about a year ago at a regional show.  The fit around the wheel bay & wing roots is a little poor in places, but nothing a little test fitting and filler can't cure.

The paint is all Xtracolour enamels. Weathering was kept fairly restrained, with exhaust stains and some paint chipping around access panels etc.  The D-12 was a proposed variant of the Fw 190D-9 'Langnasen Dora', which, as far as I can discover, was never put into production.

I picked up the cloudy background from my local model train store, and I'm experimenting with a new imaging programme...
