    Hi again
    Another Tamiya Focke-Wulf, this time the A-3 converted to an A-4 with the simple addition of the tail mast. There's probably some other mods that someone will tell me about but it looks about right to me with my limited experience. I saw this scheme on the internet and thought I had to try it. Again brush painted and only lightly weathered with a panel line wash. Represents Yellow 4 of 3/JG 54 from 1942-43. The profile I saw was of Yellow 2 6/JG 54 flown by Obr Heinrich Sterr. However, I didn't have a yellow 2 or the 6 staffel emblem in the decal bank so opted for yellow 4 and the 3 staffel.

    Don't mind that at all good stuff, the early A-4 was very similar to the A-3...

    That has got to be one of the most interesting and complex camo scheme ever seen on a -190. Excellent job!
