Fw 190 F-8/R-3 (Tamiya 1:48 scale)

Here are a few photos of the early stages of a Fw 190 F-8/R-3, being built using the Tamiya kit, Eduard’s p.e. fret, Master cannons/pitot and the MK103 cannons from an old Verlinden set.




I hope to post more soon.

Looking good so far Marco, like the extra detail you’ve added, I’m along for the ride.

Looks great so far Marco :smile:

Very clean and sharp work Marco. Hope to see more soon.

Nice work Marco!

What did you use for the seatbelts? They look perfect!

Thank you for your kind comments.

The seatbelts are Eduard’s prepainted photoetched parts (from their set for the Tamiya 190 F-8 kit). They were carefully bent and glued in place. They looked to “clean” and an oil wash/filter (using a few shades of brown and red brown) was used to integrate them with the rest of the cockpit.

Cheers
