The third entry in my parallel Fw build. Tamiya's Fw190F-8. 🙂
Good progress already Björn! 👍
Very nice work thus far 👍 Following
Thanks! You are welcome, mates! 🙂
I have also worked on the F8 this week. Assembly of fuselage/wings and pre-shading in the form of black base and marbling.
Another update for the F8. I've completed the base camoflage, so next step is to apply a gloss coat and decals.
Very nice camo
Thank you Spanjaard! I really like these mediterranian and north african paint schemes. 🙂
Welcome back Björn..following !
Another update. The decals are on and a protective clear layer before the weathering begins.

Finally a new project after a while of inactivity. This is the first of three Fw's that I'm building simultaneously. 🙂
Welcome back Björn! Good luck with your trio 👍. This is a nice kit with good fit.
Yes, really good fit on this kit. I'm happy to be back! Needed some time to get my model building mojo back. 🙂
Anything wurger related i'm into. so watching this build (and the others).
If you manage to build all three without mixing the parts, you get to wear a sash: "Three in one go"! 😉
You are welcome Alan and bughunter! 🙂
I've actually already mixed the parts up a couple of times (in pic 7 you can see the wing-assembly for the Dora.), but nothing glued to the wrong model yet.. (I think..) 😉
A little more progress on the Ta-152. Fuselage and wings are assembled. Canopy masked and painted with interion color and the whole outside masked and preshaded with a black base.
Another progress update of the Ta 152. Main camo is finished along with the insignias.
Loving it Bjorn
Very nice work so far Björn 👍
Thank you Alan and Sebastian! 🙂

Second Fw build in my parallell build. This time the Dora. 🙂
This one is a bit more challenging then the HobbyBoss Ta-152 I think! Good luck mate 👍
You are so right, Erik! Lots of details and also some fit issues with this one. Thanks!
After assembly, the Dora is now in the same state as the other two fw's. The marbling is quite a taxing job, and to do three planes in a row is taking its toll. I'm glad it's over 🙂.
Some more progress on the 190D. Main camoflage and markings are finished. I chose to mask and paint the markings instead of using the decals.
Looking great Bjorn
Do you make your own masks for the numbers?
Looking good 👍
Thanks Alan and James! 🙂
@Alan, I scanned the decal sheet and created a vector drawing from it that i cut out in my Cameo cutting machine.
Ah ok thanks. I've thought about getting a Silhouette Cameo myself

I've stared building the 112 sqn shark mouth Mustang Mk. IV.
Nice start. Following 👍
Thank you very much James, you are always welcome 🙂.
Another update. I had to add some support for the wing root, so I created a lip using a bit of plastic card to keep it in place.
I've also finished all of the small bits and pieces.
Another update. I have done most of the painting and applied the decals. Although, as always with shark mouths, I'm going to have to do some corrective work to fix the shark's teeth.😉
The 112 squadron sharkmouth Mustang IV is finished. A really nicely detailed model from Italeri.

Another addition to the Hurricane project. I have said it before, but I really like the 1:48-scale figures from ICM. Great detail and molding. It is a lot of fun painting them! 🙂
Next will be painting the various equipment that were also in the box.
Excellent figure painting. 👍
Thank you Rui! 🙂
It is nice to put a finish to this project, so I can go on to the next one.😉
Added a couple of images of the finished equipment and a mock up of all the parts. Cheers!

I've started work on the Kübelwagen that will go with the Bf 109G-2 Trop.
Everything is assembled and waiting for the first layer of paint.
Some more progress on the Kübelwagen. Everything is painted and the decals are on. Next step is weathering.
The little Kübelwagen is finished. Next will be finishing the figures and adding some dust and oil to the little car.
Thanks Laurent! 🙂
I have assembled and painted the figures and consider this project finished. On to the next one!😉
Good work! Now is time to put these beautiful builds on a common base!
Looking great 👍 I agree with Neuling😎

I'm continuing the Hurricane Mk.1 project with the build of the Austin"Tilly". I really like this kit, it has really nice details and separate wheel axels so you can have rolling wheels on the chassis.
Everything is ready for a first paint layer.
The Austin "TIlly" is progressing fine. Painted and decals are on. Next step is weathering.
Nice work. I loved doing that kit.
Thank you gorbygould! 🙂
It is a really nice little kit to build.
I finished the car. Next will be the painting of the little figure, and perhaps some more weathering. Dust/oil and stuff.😉

Fantastic looking build and very impressive paintwork!👍
Excellent build Björn!
Thank you my friends for all your nice comments! 🙂
It was a great initiative by @Jos Jansen to start this group build! 👍
Otherwise this kit would probably have stayed in the stash for a while😉, but it was a really nice experience to build another Eduard kit.
Wow! Such a great finish!
Absolutely stunning work...👍

Thank you James, Nathan and Palo. I really enjoyed building this kit. 🙂
I've never built a Hurricane before 🙂
Thanks, Sergej! 🙂
This was the first one for me, also. As it's such an iconic airplane, I felt that I had to have one.
Very beautiful sir! Thumbs up!
Thank you Giannis! 🙂

Excellent work, again!!
I remember this back in the day. It did not survive my parents cleaning when I went to college
Thank you Hans, Spanjaard, Micky and Dave! 🙂
It was alot of work to finish this, so it will probably take some time until I tackle such a project again.😉
Lovely details, especially the interior and doors. Admiration for your painted markings !
Hank you Hanno! 🙂
Fully agree with Neuling..
Especially the Figures looking awesome 👍
But they are all missing the eyes..
Thank you very much, mates! You all inspire me to become a better modeler! And the feedback is very much appreciated. 🙂
@Daniel, Thank you, and yes, painting eyes in this scale is something I haven't mastered yet. I promise you that they would look far more creepy if I had tried that.😉
The group of pilots is absolutely impressive, very lifelike! Not just the painting, but also the postures and last but not least the photography! Awesome!
Hello Björn, a very good result for someone who started modeling in 2017 👍
Thank you bughunter and berni! 🙂
