Very nice paintwork in the cockpit and wheel wells :thumbsup: That is cool to see four of them going together at the same time! I look forward to seeing these completed.

Thank you Kirk, these will keep me busy for a while but when these are finished I have even more of them from last year to finish.

That cockpit detail is amazing.
the detail in the wheelwell's is downright shocking.
it is fantastic to see a group being assembled like this.
Great Work.

You're getting good at this (he said ironically).

Thanks guys!

I should have some new update pics by Sunday but I have found a problem with the leading edge of the 1/32 scale Fw 190 and need to fix it before I can proceed with my builds.
BTW, the three models that you see in this thread are a 1/48 Dragon Fw 190D-9, 1/48 scale Tamiya Fw 190D-9, and 1/32 scale Hasegawa Fw 190A-8 converted to an ultra rare big tail Fw 190A (yes there were some of these built).

Looks excellent! I wish someone would come up with the Romanian I.A.R 80/81's in styrene. I'd build a bunch of them just like you are with the 190's.

I have a 1/48 kit by one of those limited run Czech companies. Styrene parts, resin cockpit, vac canopy. Keep meaning to get to it, it's a darn pretty airplane.

Thanks MadCap!

I started doing the mottling on the Tamiya Fw 190 D-9, the aircraft I am doing is of a Fieseler built Dora and am trying to copy the Fieseler factory style of mottling.




Next I will add the RLM 74 color to the fuselage.

Here is another in-progress pic, as you can see I have painted on the JG 2 RVD band and have also started putting on the decals.
Later today all the decals should be on the model and will post another pic today.

Thanks Mike!

Now the fun part can begin...the weathering, this is the part of making models that I enjoy the most (besides painting).

Thanks MP!

The pics below don't show the weathering very well but its there, on this model I will keep the weathering very subtle and to scale. Since these pics were taken I airbrushed more exhaust stains on the model.



I also added some weathering to the landing gear doors of my 1/32 scale Fw 190A-10, there will be more weathering later on these parts.
