Nice clean fun.

 

Could you tell me what the green and yellow templates are and who makes them.  I groove on those scissors, too.  Who makes them?

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Hi Marc,

 

the scissors are japanese scissors, a large Nigiri bought here: https://www.fine-tools.com/schere.html

I also use these japanese micro saws a lot: https://www.fine-too...micro-saws.html

And – guess – japanese blades: https://www.fine-too...om/messer1.html

 

Circle Templates: The green template (roth DIN 520) is almost 30 years old. The orange template (Aristo AR5020) is brand new and bought via amazon.

 

HTH! :-)

I am very honest when I say there are very few things I find more boring than a FW190 (maybe a 109 or Mustang :D), except when it's scratchbuilt and in 1/12th scale - and so well done! Can't wait to see more of this!

 

:D Your last words saved you! :fight: :innocent:

Intrigued by this kind of scratch-building...you're off to a great start!

How do cut the MDF formers to shape? Whatever the technique, you've achieved nice clean edges.

There is something about this build that i really like here......Focus....

And the steps...as things have to come in builders "right" order....and study the Blueprints, gather info....Reading...


I like this very much, and im shure this is going to be damn cool and awesome, as the start shows it....

Hi,

 

after several hours of sanding a Fw190 emerged out of the dust :)  Believe it or not, but 95% of the sanding was done on a glass plate. Only fuselage spine and parts of the bottom needed a sanding block.
