Hasegawa 1/32 Fw 190-A8 of JG5 February 1945
By Andy John
This model represents White 10 flown by Feldwebel Rudolf Artner of 9-JG5, Norway, February 1945. As usual, I use the Aires cockpit and Eduard etch to detail the open flaps. Paint is Gunze, which is my preferred brand.
Straightforward construction, the kit is fairly old now, but it still goes together nicely with no real problems.
Usual enhancements in the form of lead wire for brake pipes, weathered using an oil wash and post shading.
I toned down the mottling along the fuselage sides as photos of 190's seemed to show a variation in the sharpness of the mottling.
Hope you enjoy.
