    Well I am a WWII enthusiast axis preference but It's all interesting.
    I build model kits 48th 32nd and a couple 24th scale.
    WWII 70% axis modern about 50% US and 50% Russian with a few special interest thrown in, I posted one below.

    I also enjoy radio controlled aircraft don't own one yet but hope for the summer.

    Well anything else I'm sure will find it somewhere on the board.

    Anyone with modeling interests pm me love to talk shop.

    Great Dora but... are you sure that the engine covers are hinged that way?
    I remember in the 190A were swinging below the engine and used as platform by the maintenence crew.
    Maybe they changed it in the Dora, or maybe the instructions of the kit were not accurate.

    The kit was done with added resin and etch that included the covers from Aires and I checked the kit and it has them as on the model, also a pic off the web.

    Definitely they changed the cowlings from Anton to Dora, I had never noticed it...

    But in the last picture (same 190D13 #10 plane from a different angle) it seems that the upper swinging cowls stops at the exhaust tubes, and that maybe there were 2 half cowls to cover the section below the exhausts.

    It just looks 'illogical' to have designed full size cowlings swinging upwards, maybe some 190 expert can clarify it.

    below a couple of 190A for comparison, the 190D13 is of course the last

    Welcome Adolf!

    That's a nice Fw 190D-13, is it OOb, or a converted Trumpeter D-9 kit?
    (I'm guessing it's 1:32 scale)

    And Parmigiano, technically the Ta 152H series would be the last, although there was a D-14 I think(?)
