Here is a photo feature of Steffen Arndt's (alpha_tango) 1:48 scale Tamiya Fw 190 F-8. The model was finished as Gruppenkommandeur Egon Thiem's I./SG10 machine.

Nice job Steffen!

I'll remember it as inspiration for trying an 'F-8 again - my previous effort, along with Open Blitz et al was thoroughly trashed in the move away from London.

All the best

I like it--a nice, clean-looking build. The pattern of the winter camo complements the lines of the plane (as does the closed canopy). It's a shame the aerial wire mechanism on the Wurger makes it complicated to leave the canopy moveable, as I'd probably do just that on my builds.

Congrats, Steffen

Thanks Rowan and Automat!

and of course Jean-Luc for putting the things together.

I am not sure if I had a build thread or just one with the completed model. So if anyone has questions just ask here ....

all the best
