Yellow 10 is now complete. This is by far the biggest modeling project I've undertaken, and though it was much more work than I anticipated, I'm happy with the outcome.
To summarize, I used the base Eduard FW 190D-13 Profipak kit with the following additions: Quickboost supercharger intake and exhaust, Master cannons and pitot, Eduard detail kit, Eduard wooden landing flaps, Montex masks for main markings, Eagle decals, AK Real Color paints for RLM 02, 66, 70, 75, 76, 81, and 82. Model Master paint for RLM 25 (spinner).
Since the last update, I did a Flory panel line wash and picked out some of the rivet detail. Then I oversprayed the entire plane with a thinned buff-gray mix to tone down the solid white and black areas. The exhaust and gun smoke was a combination of thinned black-brown paint plus some pastels. The spinner was weathered to reflect oil leaks in the hub. I gave it two coats of Model Master Flat Clear Lacquer for the final finish. The antenna was stretched sprue to get the right sag.
This was a very challenging build for me but I think it looks good in the end. I probably went overboard with the aftermarket add-ons (this was my first time using them). I would recommend the cannons, intake, exhaust and actually the cowl flaps. Maybe the landing flaps. The extras in the wheel bay don't add much value.
I really enjoyed the paint challenge. I'll be using AK Real Color paints more in the future for sure.
Thanks for following along and enjoy the photos.
