    Hi all,
     
    Just finished this, lovely kit - but the Meng additions are average - Instructions/ Decals. The wings were bent, but easily reformed.

    Has anyone ever noticed having a conversation about a product and then noticed adverts appear on your phone? I have.

    Well, the big Trumpy Avenger is done. For those that have followed this build it has been an adventure. Her she is in her glory, warts and all...

    He won't. They will not change their decals. They have traditionally been thick and that's just the way it was, is and more than likely will be. FWIW, I haev never had an issue with them conforming BUT they are thick

    Finally I have to say something after years of dealing with Tamiya decals that are thick and will not conform to panel lines and such, I mean its really bad when you can feel the ridge of the decal on your model with your finger! Paying $271 for a Mosquito and the having spend more for decent set of decals and stencils that by all rights should be included in the kit. Can't they outsource them like other companies? Or make their own with new tooling not from the 1980's which I pulled an 80's kit out and compared the decals and I swear they are of the same tooling! I hope that Mr. Tamiya will read this.
    Thanks for reading my rant

    The set I received was missing fuses, but they're the same as with OFAB-100 bombs.

    As I promised some time ago, here are some photos of new ResKit stuff. Unfortunately, ResKit doesn't show its goods in their full glory but posts just 3D renders. So...

    These nozzles measure 37.2 mm which perfectly fits Trumpeter kit.

    Many thanks Jeff, yes recovering well - hence being able to find the time to finish a model hopping around the house now on one crutch only which makes life so much easier than two crutches. Not at work till end of Oct as cannot drive to get order to post office or stand to cast resin etc. thanks for kind words and thoughts all the same

    And so my Hasegawa 1/32 Fw 190 D-9 is finished representing Red 1 of JV 44's protection flight and flown by the the Staffel Kapitan Lt. Heinz "Heino" Sachsenberg (104 victories). The models was finished in Mr Paint RLM colours which were a joy to use and the decals were by EagleCals.
    This model was supposed to be a straight from the box quick build a year ago - but instead became a money magnet!
    After market sets used were the following
    Quickboost props
    Quickboost Super-charger intake
    Quickboost exhausts
    Aires cockpit
    Aires main gear bay
    Barracuda wheels
    Eduard canopy mask
    Eduard Spiral mask
    Eduard landing flaps
    Master MG 131 and MG 151 gun barrels - and also pitot tube
    HGW seat belts and control surfaces
    EagleCals decals as mentioned above.
    Added to this list during construction were two of my own AIMS products - 32PE014 Fw 190 Hatches and Latches and 32D024 Fw 190 Oleo Leg markings (I just could not resist getting AIMS into the build somehow
    Three other after market products were bought and had to go in the bin but apart from those headaches I really enjoyed building this exotic bird of prey. The model finish was rather simple thankfully as Tamiya 2mm wide flexible tape seemed to fit the scale perfectly. And so with the Mr Paint White Primer masked off the RLM 23 was applied. Once this was masked off the RLM 76 and late war greens were applied free-hand using the many photos of Red 1 as best as possible. Hope you like the finish photos. Please note only the first two photos show the red lowered and locked landing gear indicators as I forgot all about them till after checking the photos. Best wishes and stay safe, John
