This was in the JV44 FW 190 box so I thought - why not!



Absolute bare pit so added a few leftover small 72 decals, basic stick and gunsight


paint time


Finished.
Eduard shows a weight to fit, could I find it? no! so packed in some lead, how much could it need?
Answer = more than I packed in   Mad  and there isn't a lot of packing space!

Had to reluctantly pack more into the open front wheel gearbay, even now it just sits correct.

Also added loop and lower aerials and pitot tube - shown on instructions - not supplied.

Left the radio wires as I couldn't find anything that suited the scale.













It is tiny! beside the 48th 262.






and I think that will be my one and only 1/144th modelling experience !!

HaHa that is not brail scale, more like microscope scale. Good result all the same Phil but I don't see the rudder peddals!

Trust you to notice that Geoff !!!!

and just like the real thing, the front gear leg snapped, what fun repairing it, then i realized I had stuck it on back to front ( facepalm) but since I had used a 0.15 piece of wire it could be spun around so that was a bonus,,plus I painted the wrong wheel hub blue.... will fix that soon.
