    The Fw-190 is from 44 from JG300 based at Finsterwalde,Germany and flown by Lt.Viktor Heimann.Aeromaster goes on to say that in many publications it's believed to be 76/81/83 but they believe through analysis it is 76/75/83 so I went with that (I like those colors :) ).The He280 is with the smaller original engines not the Jumo that sealed this planes fate I believe these are the Hs8?I lightly panel the 280 with a preshade it does not show much in the pics but trust it is there.The 190 I played some on and it's not even on the weathering all the way around but a start for some new areas of interest to me.I used the Mig's on the wheels (thks Trey)and wells.I also made up my own wash used it on the gear and panel lines along with the pre-shade.I hope you guys like and approve if not where's that bird monicure :lol:.Anyway off to that Betty 1/48 Tamiya started the RLM02 on the inside today but I got to pic up some more 02 tomorrow for I plan to presdade here and a light spray over that.Cheers

    Also did something I have not done in awhile and honest opinions here.I free handed the camo on the wings of the 190 and I usually subscribe to hard demarcation lines here in 1/72 1/48(wanted to see the new Renegade AB works) what is the opinion?

    Nice ones. Like the dio.
    The demarcation on the wing camo. looks fine. The only place where the panel ines look a bit iffy is along the top of the aieleron hinge line . The ejection ports for the spent cases could do with being darkened to give them depth and a pencil line run along the underside of the control surfaces and flap hinge lines (See Waynes PDFs in the Weathering tips section on how to do this) will also add depth.

    I think you did a great jon on the freehand camo, Kevin. The demarcation is thin enough to be convincing. The panel lines are not too overdone, which I like. Good job.

    Thks Guys appreciate the input.Lewis have to remember the pencil I used the silver pencil for some chipping here and there.I was surprised the the wing root did not show up better maybe something to do with the sunlight.I might go back after the undersides alittle see what comes about around the chutes.I am doing up the old Revell Mosquito IV that will be the quick build along side the Betty ;) Cheers

    I think you did a great jon on the freehand camo, Kevin. The demarcation is thin enough to be convincing. The panel lines are not too overdone, which I like. Good job.

    Which is something I was really trying to avoid you know how critical I can be on that myself.But I think what Lewis was pointing out around the upper aileron is a tad dark and I seem to remember thinking that as I applied the juice.

    More to come...
