The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger (English: Shrike) is a German single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s and widely used during World War II. Along with its well-known counterpart, the Messerschmitt Bf 109, the Fw 190 became the backbone of the Luftwaffe’s Jagdwaffe (Fighter Force). The twin-row BMW 801 radial engine that powered most operational versions enabled the Fw 190 to lift larger loads than the Bf 109, allowing its use as a day fighter, fighter-bomber, ground-attack aircraft and, to a lesser degree, night fighter.
I finally got some time to finish the one up. I pretty much patterned the scheme with Brett Green’s build because I really liked it. All paints were Tamiya and the Camel Yellow was from a Tamiya rattle can because I think it captures the yellow quite well. I used EagleCal decal set EC#91 and they went down flawlessly. I had absolutely no fit issues on this kit and am very pleased at the quality and detail RoG is putting out…the price was exceptionally affordable…got it on sale for under $30 U.S.
Immediately after applying decals to the right landing gear, I noticed the gear needed adjusted…so, what did I do? I handled the decal area and crumbled them…sheesh. Also, on the left side of the fuselage I accidentally got a drop of Tamiya thin cement on the edge of the BalkanKreuz and it ran some of black, but not too badly.
