Gallery Article by Tolga Ulgur on Dec 9 2013



This is my 1/32 Hasegawa Focke Wulf 190A-5 with the markings of 5.JG 54 flown by Lt Emil Lang on Eastern front during the summer of 1943. Lt. Emil Lang accumulated 173 aerial victories, 144 of which were gained on the Eastern Front.

The cockpit was painted with RLM 66 using Tamiya acrylics. The cockpit area was modified with Eduard seatbelts and Airscale instrument dial decals.  The exhaust was replaced with “Quickboost Fw190A exhausts #QB32020” and the wheels are from “Eagle part EP 53-32 Main tire and Wheel set for A1-A6”.

My 190 was then finished off with decals from “Data decals #32005”.

The camouflage scheme is as it appeared during the summer of 1943, when sand tone patterns were sprayed over the original two tone green. Painting done with Gunze acrylics. Lower surfaces painted to RLM 76, Upper surfaces to RLM70/71 and sand color. In accordance with orders from higher up hierarchy, unit markings were oversprayed. Nevertheless the green heart shape was still recognizable on the aircraft of JG54. 

Happy modelling.
