    Username: Ozhawk40
    First name: Peter
    Category: Advanced
    Scale: 1:48
    Manufacturer: Tamiya
    Model Type: Focke-Wulf Fw190 A-3
    Details: 8./JG2 "Black 13" France 1942
    Aircraft Assignment: Unkown
    Accessories: True Details Wheels, Eduard Etch
    Decals: Superscale or Tamiya decals​


    Okay, I'm in for this one too. This is unfinished business. I started this Tamiya 190 about three years ago and made a start on the etch cockpit tub and flaps. I stuffed the flaps up big time - threw it all back in the box and it's been there ever since. I hope I haven't done too much to exclude me from the build - pics show progress so far.

    I bought this one on evil bay as a package deal and it includes a set of after market decals with the same "Black 13" as in the box. The eagles are both very different styles. I've never found a picture of this beast to confirm the style, so help appreciated here with the right reference for this bird.

    I'll make a start soon, if the judges are all agreed.

    Cheers

    Peter

    Good choice Peter. If that's all you've done on the kit, I don't see a problem with entering it. Here are a couple of pics, sourced off the net.

    Good one Jan - I just had a look at yours in the start to finish section, and you did an excellent job on the Hasegawa version of this one. Builds to a really fine looking model doesn't she!

    Appears Wayne Little was able to add some info on this one so I'll quote Wayne as:-

    Bit of a history to this one then.

    Thanks Jan

    Cheers

    It's been a couple of weeks, I know, but I've finally made a start on this one.

    Started with the prop and engine. Like everyone else, no good going overboard on the engine, as it will stay under cover.

    More soon.8)

    Cheers

    Peter
