Hi All!

Here is my recently completed 190 A-5 from Eduard. This is the new mould kit, but I chose my own decal stash to replicate a less ordinary FW when it came to camouflage.

Hope you like it!

























Cheers,
Pedro

I love it Pedro! This was one of the SchlachtFleiger birds yes? And with the yellow ident bands it would have to have been Russian front. I think I've seen this camo scheme in a couple of publications, any history on the unit and who flew her?

Hey Pedro

Lovely build and finish. The subtle weathering really ads life to the look. Congratulations on a great piece of work.

What's next?

With warm wishes,

Steve.

@ Joe- thanks for the comments! I used free hand everywhere except yellow 04 areas


@ Steve- thanks for the comments also, appreciate a lot. My next project is a Zvezda 109 G-6 that is almost completed. After that one will be Dragons Ju188 for the Bombers campaign and a CASA 212 bimotor (this one 1/72).

Cheers,
Pedro
