Here is my recently completed 1/32 Hasegawa Fw 190D-9 build of the JV44 Dora flown by Heinz Sachsenberg known as "Red 1".

Thanks so much for the comments!  I appreciate it!  There is no build log of Red 1 here at LPS so I thought I'd share some highlights of the construction. 

 

I had planned on using the Quickboost resin radiator cowling and gun cowling but due to some issues of fit, I decided not to.  Instead, I re-shaped the kit radiator cowling by spinning it on a Dremel.

The exaggerated valley between the guns on the gun cowling were filled and shaped with Milliput.

I used the Aires resin cockpit with HGW harnesses on this one.

The kit wing guns and covers were replaced with Quickboost resin replacements and brass tubing for the barrels as the Quickboost barrels were warped.

All exterior surfaces were riveted using RB Production's Rivet-R tool.

Lots of wiring was added to the engine plug.

The Henri Daehne prop blades were painted as wood even though the minor chipping made this all but unnoticeable in the end.

Wow, a condensed build thread and RFI all in one! Impressive. So good I want to toss the one I have in the stash out the door as it's never going to measure up to this one. Amazing wiring detail especially.
