    Looking at the instruktions for this kit and the kit itself, makes me wonder, can you build both a "normal" A-8 AND an A-8/R2?

    If I were you I would assemble both variants.Of course if there would be possibility of making other nice replics but of much different types I would follow that as well. It would depend on markings and camo schemes only.

    The answer is yes.


    But most importantly, did you get your bit of real Fw 190 with the kit? :D


    There's a lovely model of an Eduard Fw 190 "Blue 13" in a magazine that Wojtek sent me, a super detailed wonder. If I had a scanner I'd show you it but it might put you off. :D

    Can't remember Brother. I bought it when it just came out, when it was cheaper....

    I'm looking to do a "normal" or standard A-8 and an A-8/R2, both "13's" of course! :oops: Just looking through my "13" list in my thread to figure out which one to do....

    I sure did get a piece of R-E-A-L Fw 190! 8)

    Have a few that I'd like to do. Looking at those on the MIA/KIA list put together here with "13's". Just a question to find profiles to work from "13's" or not, just to get an idea of the camouflage and the style on the "13". I'm sure that it's plenty other floating around that would be interesting....8)

    Trying to put me off already old chap? :lol:
