1/32 Hasegawa FW190 was created by Grant
I've changed my mind. I've got one of the 1970s Hasegawa 1/32 Fw-190s in the stash, so I'll be building that.

Time for some crappy kit building. Here she is, the 1/32 Hasegawa FW-190 F8. It's definitely an older style kit, just how crappy remains to be discovered. :)

Crappy kit ahoy! Lots of progress today.

Box contents:




Cockpit is rather minimal and took about thirty minutes to complete.






Engine has a bunch of (poorly fitting) pieces. All this will be hidden, so I didn't bother painting it.



Wings (complete with rivet detail) were glued together. The wheel legs have an interesting attachment arrangement which means your meant to attach them at this stage. I took them off and will put them on later.




Various (poorly fitting) engine panels (with more excessive rivet detail). :lol:




Gap!!!! :pinch:





Most of it together now. I decided to build the fighter version, as all the needed parts were in the box.



First attempts to fill the gap and clean it up a bit.



All in all a fun day of modelling. I'm going to try to finish this over the long weekend. :whistle:

Yeah, really it's not that bad. In some ways the simplicity of the kit is quite refreshing. I'm going to tone down some of the surface detail though. :)

Painted and decaled. The green came out too green and not grey as I intended. Hopefully the grey oil wash will tone the colours down a bit. Predictably the decals silvered because of all the raised rivet detail even though I glossed it before application. Grrrr. The red 3 is from the spares box. I painted the camo freehand, and masked the red band. Still some further details to be painted, and then the various bits glued on. :)

Cheers. I fixed up the worst of the silvering with the airbrush + careful masking, gave it a really dirty wash and a flat coat. Now I'm painting and sticking the final bits on. The undercarriage is pretty flimsy. I'll also do some final weathering once it's all together. :)

Nice build and paint job, but hardly a crappy kit or nostalgic build.

Sorry Craig, that's the new tool Hasegawa Fw-190 and not the old kit I'm building. Thanks for the comment though. ;)

Is this the same version that was due to fly at an airshow here over Easter but had to be cancelled due to a damaged prop?

I only saw some really brief clips on the tv of the Fw190 at Omaka so didn't note the type. It was a replica was it?

Not sure I thought it was the only flying one of its type? Would look good up against an M16 halftrack!

Oops, my bad. Was not aware Hasegawa were still boxing their old kit even after the release of the new tool one. Must pay more attention to box contents (although we did not have the Hasegawa rights when that was released). Still nice work on an old kit.

Cheers. It's just the chunky surface detail that gives it away when you line it up against a recent kit.
