Description

 

Here is my 1/144 scale Platz Fw 190D-9. This was my first foray into very small-scale modelling.

Like most Dora models, this model had enclosed wheel wells appropriate for the A series aircraft that I had to open up. I scratch built a rear engine plug that would be seen in the open wheel well area. I scratch built an instrument panel and added a throttle, canopy operating crank, control column, gun sight, seat belts and boarding steps.

Platz supplies extra conopies that are molded shut. I used two of the canopies and cut them in half using the front half of one and the back half of the other to give the model an opened canopy.

I added various antennas, drilled out the supercharger intake and used hypodermic needles for the gun barrels.

I used the supplied decals and Jerry Crandall's excellent Focke-Wulf 190 D-9 volume one as my references.
