Hasegawa 1/32 Fw 190D-9 "Schwarz 14 + I" 10./JG2, April 1945
By Tristan Estoppey
Here is my latest bird. This is the well known Hasegawa Dora, here upgraded with some resin goodies.
For those interested, upper wings are RLM76/82, fuselage and upper horizontal tail 81 and 82, underside and sides are 76/ bare metal. Engine covers are 76/71. Ailerons (underside) and rudder are 65.
Paints are Gunze but I made my own mixes for 81 and 82, the rest is "out of the jar".
The spinner spiral is copied on the one shown on "Schwarz 1 + I" of the same unit.
It is a Fieseler-built machine with an unknown Werknummer, so I've opted for something plausible (600378). Markings are a mix of self-made masks (thanks to my new Silhouette cutting machine, I strongly recommend it), wet transfers and decals.
