Hasegawa 1/32 Fw 190D-9 "Yellow 11"
By John Kim
Here is my recently finished Dora in 1/32 scale. Although the Hasegawa kit is excellent, I purchased quite a few aftermarket resin upgrades but I ended up not using the majority of them due to fit issues/operator error... i.e. Eagle 3-piece gun cowling, Eagle radiator cowling, and the most of the MDC cockpit. I modified the curvature of the Hasegawa gun cowling using the Eagle resin as a guide with sheet plastic and putty. A first for me: I riveted the entire surface of the aircraft using Radu's Rivet-R. Colors were primarily Tamiya acrylics with some Gunze mixed in and Alclad for the metal portions underneath. Decals are Eagle Cals.
