1/32 Focke Wulf FW190D-13 "Yellow 10"

Recommended Posts

Even though we've all seen this plane done dozens of times, it's always been one of my favorites, so here's mine all finished up.

Details:

Hasegawa ST19 kit

Eagle Editions "Yellow 10" decals for specific markings and swastikas

HGW wet transfers for national insignia and most stencils

HGW seatbelts

HGW wood decals for flaps

Aires wheel bays and cockpit

Airscale instruments and placards (thanks, Peter!)

Grey Matter Figures (Rutman) D-13 conversion set 

S.O.W. main landing gear legs (thanks Damian!!)

Eduard exterior PE bits and canopy masks

Barracuda wheels

Moskit exhausts (thanks WilliamJ!)

Wire antennae, brake lines, brass tube gun barrels

Homebrew washes and chalk weathering

 

Thanks for looking!

Tim

Mmmm, that's a pretty D9! Lovely paint finish.

 

Just for your information, inside the canopy is a spring loaded pulley which would keep the antenna wire under tension at all times, even with the canopy opened.

You're right, I totally forgot about that!!! I'll have to revise that.

What astunning representation of "Yellow 10", you hit the nail just right on the head with the paintwork

and weathering, that's a cracker for sure  :bow:

Interesting. I thought exactly as Wouter did, but it's been so long since I did a 190, that I forgot. I guess sometimes senility plays in my favor.

Beautiful Dora, Tim!  This will be a reference build for sure when I eventually start my D-13 so thanks for paving the way with such a wonderful build.  X2 on the slack aerial being correct on the D-9 with bulged canopy.
