Fw190F-8 – Revell 1/32 old kit.

For the groupbuild on LSP, I choosed this kit for the eastern front. The kit is pretty old, but I think some parts are newer. I’ve bought the kit 2nd hand and have no box other than the one it was sent in.

I haven’t decided yet if I’ll do SG 4 or SG 10. It depends a bit if I feel confident enough to try paint the mottle pattern with airbrush.
Anyway, I’ve started slightly by cleaning up and assembling the cockpit parts and the fuselage halves, as they’re needed as soon as I get the cockpit done.

As usual in these old kits the pilot and cockpit isn’t the very best and I haven’t decided if I’ll use the pilot or not, yet. Maybe I’ll do to cover the lack of detail in the cockpit.

As the plane will be sitting on the ground, the rear wheel will be down, and after testing I figured it could be inserted afterwards.

Next I’ll start painting the cockpit and the pilot, and other areas that needs paint before assembly.

I’ve also started to clean up the engine parts, but no pics yet as there was quite a bit of flash.
