    Leave it to me to make a new entry into a Group Build which ends in about two weeks. However, I need a blitz build to renew my interest and motivation and considering the simplicity of the kit I've chosen think I'll manage to finish this on time.
    For now, here are couple of shots of the kit - simple and with very few parts as you can see. The color profile and last picture bellow show aircraft which is the subject of this build. Decal sheet doesn't include option for "Black 4", but I'll use my spares from another kit.

    Great to have a late addition to this GB. Your little Dora can join the big Dora and medium Dora.

    Thanks for your comments guys.
    Here's the first update - the model is put together and ready for painting now. (It helps to speed up the process of assembly when you have one part fuselage and one part main wing.) Anyway, here are few shots to show how she looks at the moment...

    Good choice, and good progress so far, Igor.
    I used the Hobby Boss FW190A-8 for the very first GB introduction, and not having built a 1/72nd scale kit for many years, at that time, I was impressed by the simplicity, and the fine detail, for such a small (to me) subject.
    You should get it done with time to spare I reckon !

    Yeah, I think someone was experimenting with the tags. I got an "Informative" for saying "Nice work" to someone.
