If you asked me how many 1/32 190's I've owned and started over the years, I don't think I could give an accurate number, it's been so many!  And with that, I'm delighted to be able to say that I actually finished one, which also makes the first kit I have build to completion in under 2 weeks in over a decade. 

 

So here it is: Hasegawa's 190 A-5 with Eagle Editions high altitude cowl scoops. I used this as a test for the Flory Models washes as I've never tried them before. It took a total of 20 minutes to paint all the panels in the clay sludge, let it dry, and wipe it off with a damp paper towel. Definitely can't complain about the time it took to do that wash and I love the result!

Excellent build Mike, love the finished result.  I have also never finished a 190 kit in 1/32, and I have never been very happy with every 190 I built in 1/48. 

 

Well done!

You guys are far too kind, thank you! And Kev, yes, I can shoot some more pix tonight if I don't get distracted by the fact that it's a Friday :piliot:

Mike

Gorgeous finish and build. Did I understand you correctly that this build was only two weeks from start to finish?

Absolutely amazing
