Kitty Hawk has announced an Fw 190A-5

Recommended Posts

I am happy to see some new large FW-190’s coming out.  I might get a KH 190.  I have never like the Hasegawa kits as I looked at them and felt they were more like a 1/48 scale kit in detail. Years ago I built their D-9 but never a have built any of the A series although I considered it.  I am very interested in the SWS 190 series.  Looks like nice choices are coming in any event.

At least it's not Daimler Chrysler.

 

I have the joy of seeing that under the hood of my 2003 SL500. The upside is they had such quality problems during that period the resurrected MB give (original) owners from that era 20% off parts and labor to get things fixed right and use authentic MB parts.

Wait...  Milton Bradley makes parts for the SL500??

I take a couple days off and now we have 10 pages of wonderful LSP Fw-190 banter.  Amazing.   It’s summer time for you northern hemisphere types.  Shouldn’t you guys be outside working on a kit right now?  Sporting some epic sunglasses, a cold sweating beverage of choice next to you, perhaps a little music going on?  

 

You guys and gals should be enjoying yourselves outside and give the poor HK FW a rest.  A rainy fall and miserably cold winter is almost around the corner!   

 

Just kindly saying.

It's too hot to do much at the moment: like 1976 but with a sixty year old's body and not the svelte nautical 18 yr old who was full of energy. I like the idea of the cold beverage; that bit works, like my drinking arm.

It was 104 F today, not exactly modeling weather.  My garage is an oven!

I'm with the Mikester; I have to open my garage to ventilate when painting and the heat and threatening rain have the humidity a bit high. That and the freaking mosquitoes put me off modeling during the day.

 

Also a bit too sad to model today after the Dragon DS plastic discussion at armorama.com, where many of us are discovering the disintegration of that crap is Italeri rubber tires all over again. The wheel well inserts to my Dragon Bf 109-E4B have become brittle and broke into pieces. Can't even think about all the track I have to eventually replace. I bet all the bobbleheads they make are perfect, though. Priorities and all.

Are you saying that Dragon's plastic has a poor "shelf life", and disintegrates like the cheap foreign car plastic trim parts do?

I had he exact same issues with the DS on my own '109E, emailed Dragon and they sent replacements at no charge, and fast too.

Just the DS stuff they replaced the track links with, and a few other random pieces. It's a soft plastic, sort of like they make action figures out of.

Was that recently? A lot of people were complaining that Dragon has opted out of customer service for the most part, and have been sending equally bad replacements or accusing people of trying to scam free parts.

It was a few month back, I guess, when I was plugging away on my E-4.
