III/JG2 'Richthofen' Luftwaffe Fighters (2)





I have gathered together all the bits for the Fw190 A4 project including the four original Museum Miniatures models that I prepared last year, the eight unmodified ones that I didn't start on, a single Museum Miniatures Ju88 A4 bomber to convert into a Ju88 D reconnaissance aircraft and the last of my Raiden Miniatures resin flight bases and metal stands. This lot doesn't look like much but it will take me some time to convert the Fw190 A8 models into A4's, by removing the cannon blisters without damaging the detail around the cockpit and engine cowling, as you can see from the photos. I meant to start on this today but got diverted by other things, so will get up early tomorrow and get cracking.

  1. Converting something so small is the way to madness. Go for it

  2. Looking good man. I wish I'd have done WWII in 1/300, but I've got too much 1/600 now so it'll have to do!

    V/R,
