Hi All,

   Been wondering about this one for a while.  Anyone know?  I'm thinking it's an FW190A1, so maybe Channel Coast.

Thanks your thoughts,

Is that Atlas who dropped the earth from his shoulders on the cowling or just some random dude with a ball?

The artwork is actually a monkey in a Brit hat getting cut in his behind by a saw blade. :D

 

HTH,

I'm sorry I couldn't be more useful :/ Glad, someone else figured it out, though! Guess I assumed a little too much philosophical depth in the artwork... :D

I really considered a number of possibilities.  Only recently did the proportions strike me as somewhat ape-ish.  But the British hat was invisible to my eyes until it was pointed out.  And I had thought perhaps the symbol was one single color.  But now I'm glad to see what it was.  I now have an excuse to build an FW190.

 

Who makes the best 1/32 A4?

 

Thanks,

 

Gaz

I am curious about the mind that came up with the nose art...

The only early Fw-190 in 1/32 scale is the PCM one.

Oh, I think most nose art artists have pretty vivid imaginations....

We had lunch together a few years ago, but we haven't been in contact since.

Montex makes a nice, no-cut conversion set for the Hasegawa '190 kits with full fuselage halves.
