Revell 1:32 Focke Wulf 190 F-8 - 1./SG4 Piacenza Italy, June 1944


Recommended Posts

From the web:

 

Schlachtgeschwader 4 was formed 18.10.43 in Piacenza Italy from Stab/Sch.G. 2.

 

When I purchased the new Revell kit I thought that my model needed to be somehow Italian so, as the Fw 190 was never used by Italians in WW2, I looked for a subject at least linked to Italy and I found that SG4 in 1944 operated from three Italian airports: Piacenza, Viterbo and Airasca and fought actively in the battle for Rome.

 

As mentioned already in a different session of this forum, my goal was to replicate this "White 11"

In addition to the Revell kit I used the following integrations:

 

Eduard Brassin cockpit ref. 632056 and bronze undercarriage legs, ref. 632057

Wooden propeller blades and spinner from Eagle Parts

Decals, where used, from Eagle Cals

Home made masks for insigna.

 

So, here following some pictures of the bird.

Great camo finish - the Italians & Germans both had some very cool schemes, usually more interesting than Allied efforts.

 

Can we have some more close-ups please?

Many thanks for all nice comments.

About details shots, I have some taken during the assembly process and a few taken at the finished model.

Here they are

 

Engine first, assembled, no weathering and no details added because I knew that much will not be visible at the end.
