Hi mates!!!

Here comes my new Fw 190 F-8 in 1/32 scale.
The kit originally came from Hasegawa, but was also sold by Revell under its own label.
It's an oldtimer among the kits, but as you may know, I like these ancient kits.
My 190 shows the "White 11" from "I./SG4", Piacenza, Italy 1944.

Horrido....

Nice one, Stefan!
A few years ago I built also a F-8 in that camo in 1/48 from Tamiya. The missing swastika here is correct because it was overpainted or at least toned down on most aircraft of this unit. Instead of an external tank I would have used a bomb. At least it's a fighter bomber ....

Have fun!

Stefan! I just love what you do with the base plates, surrounding equipment and figures, it really adds a lot to an already very nice model! I'll have to do something about the blue undersurfaces on my own build, they turned out Blue with a big "B", your's looks a lot nicer and a lot more plausible!
