1/72 Airfix Focke-Wulf Fw 190 F-8

Gallery Article by Gerd Wilcken on Nov 27 2014



As I described in my Gallery Article from January 22 2014, I think the Airfix 1/72 Fw-190 seems to be a very good model. 

So good that I was tempted to build another aircraft with the existing decal sheet No. 72-27 from Authentic Decals. I was looking for an exceptional camouflage again and chose a gray-gray-green Fw-190 F-8 from III. / SG 3 Sweden in May 1945.

The camouflage pattern seems to be a little bit similar to the later used camouflage by the Swedish Air Force Saab Viggen and was probably very suitable for the Swedish countryside. 

The model was built OOB again, only some fabric-seat belts from Eduard were used. All details about the model can be found in my above mentioned article.

After an internet research, I now believe, that I am coming too much in a shade of green. But who can say how it really looks…

In any case, again I had a lot of fun to build the Airfix model and hope the viewers have enjoyed it also.
