    Username: Catch22
    Name: Cory
    Category: Beginner
    Model: Fw 190A-8
    Scale: 1:32
    Manufacturer: Hasegawa
    Aftermarket addons: Eagle Editions decals, and maybe some seatbelts that came with the Trumpeter Me 262.

    I'm back guys! After a substantial break from GBs due to weather, and lack of appropriate kits (saw an AM IL-2 yesterday though that I wish I had seen a few months back!), I'm back at it! This is my first, and possibly my only, entry into this build. I may enter a 1/48 D-9 with a resin engine set, but I still have to finish a couple models and I'm itching to start my F-14 so we'll see how that goes.

    The subject is a Fw 190A-8 Blue 4 from JG 5 (Eismeer). All that's said on the decal sheet is May 1945, and that it's in Herdla, Norway. No Werknummer either. I don't have any pictures, so if anyone does and can post them, that'd be great!

    I'll scan the profile sheet after.

    Good one Cory. Will look around to see what I might have on this one. I leant a book that has a lot on JG 5 in it to my Dad on Ontario and I'm going back in June but I'm sure something will crop up elswhere. A quick search on the net brough up one photo of a row of 190's with blue codes but not blue 4.

    EDIT: Found something in Squadron Walkaround no 22:

    "FW 190A-8 Blue 4 (WNr believed 350189) was assigned ot 12.IV/JG 5 in the early spring of 1945. The aircraft was slightly damaged due to pilot error on 3 March 1945...."

    Not to worry Wojtek. I'm sure we'll see our share of Messerschmitts in this GB soon enough. :)
    Nice choice Cory. Looking forward to your build.

    Yeah Andy, it's a good sheet! Bought it for Black 12 actually, and have already used those decals. The finished kit is here: http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/yo...1-32-fw-190a-8-black-12-8-jg-300-a-26064.html

    I've also always wanted to do a Blue numbered 190 (due to that being my favourite colour :lol:), and as luck would have it there's one on this sheet.

    And thanks Wayne, I figured you'd come up with something!

    Wanted to get some paint on the cockpit yesterday, but the way it worked out I didn't get to it. Maybe today, but the weather isn't that great.
