FW 190 V32-U1

Recommended Posts

Now it was time for the Frankenwulfer to visit a beautyfarm to get some makeup in form of a thick coat of primer.

All in all it dosen't look to bad. Hours of filling and sanding have paid off.

During drying times I did the engine cowl minus the flaps.

The underside looks ready too.

Back on the road.

Three months ago my V32 had an accident. I tumbled over a carelessly layed about cable and smashed the bird on the edge of my desk. 80% write off! The cowl and parts from the tail were the only things I could save.

I was really pissed off and wanted to give up the V32. At least after much grumble I started from zero once more and the bird is back on my desk augmented with a four blade prop, exhausts and cowlflaps. Have to watch the floor carefully in future.

Looking good, Michael! I had that happen to me and a nearly-finished Manchester conversion I was doing (in 1/72nd scale). The Manchester still hasn't completely recovered. It's nice to see that your FW-190 has.

 

Regards,

Micheal,

I feel your pain Brother,I crushed a project of mine after nearly 6 months of work.I'm more than happy you were able to save this awesome project. I'm looking forward to seeing more. It's a very fitting example of the highest standards of skill and craftsmanship my friend.

Highest Regards,

Gregory Jouette
