The wings doesn't fit well against the root. I test fitted the wings and it looks like this.

It's a little better on the underside.

I tried to push wings and root together, and sure it closed the gap, but it also tilted the body and made it near impossible to close the gap on the other side.

So I took some plastic sheet and inserted, and then glued and pushed both sides together. 

It became better, but I think some more plastic shims might be needed.

I'll do that next and then shape them right and fill the rest with putty.

Thank you Nick! :)

 

At that time I mostly built cars and Tamiya tanks and figures! :)

Not even sure if those kits were available here at that time.

Back then I only built one kit at the time! :)

Nice effort so far :goodjob:

 

This is the really old FW-190 kit. They missed the exhausts on the belly... :shrug: I've tried to correct this (have this kit on the shelf of doom) but this is a major effort. In hindsight: go with this kit as is, it is not that noticable with the bird resting on is legs. Same with the rivets: If you lose some of them, just scrap off the same rivets at the other side of the aircraft to get a symmetrical look, and everything is fine. If you sand down all the rivets a bit and add a dark latewar camouflage it will have the right look and feel of a Fw-190 and everything will be fine :)

Thank you Dutik and Gaz! :)

 

Yes, I also think it's the same molds. I have a Frog A8 kit, also same kit but horrible green plastic! :)

 

After some glueing and holding. puttying and sanding, the wings looks a lot better! :)

Hard place to sand and some rivets lost, but I'm not gonna bother very much.

I added a pair of plastic rods in the wheel wells.

With some colour and some imagination it can be mistaken for gun barrels! :)

 

Soon time to mask the canopy and check which other parts that needs to go on before primer and paint.
