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?

Hi Chris! No, this one is from IV. JG 51, but it flow in the russian front alright, those yellow ID areas donít lie

@ Russel,

Sorry, forgot to mention the scale, itís the new 1/48 edition.

Cheers,
Pedro

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
