I’ve been jumping all over the place regarding which Fw 190 I wanted to build for the Fw 190 Group Build being hosted over on Finescale. Literally, all over the place, from 1/48 to 1/32, from Tamiya to Hobby Boss to Hasegawa to Eduard, from an A-5 to an A-7 to an A-8/R2, F-8 and D-9.
Shortly before the new year, I settled on a 1/48 Tamiya F-8, but that’s quickly gone haywire as the Eduard photo etch for it was a rare mess. So instead of throwing good money after bad on an old kit, I’m switching gears to Eduard’s F-8 kit.
The Eduard kit is far more complete than the old Tamiya boxing, with much finer details (surface rivets, PE fins for various bombs and rockets, etc), but I’ve heard some nasty horror stories about getting it all together. We’ll see I guess!
