Trimaster / DML 1/48 scale
Focke-Wulf Fw 190 D-9

by Christian Lehmann

Focke-Wulf Fw 190 D-9

 


Eduard's 1/48 scale Fw 190 D-9 is available online from Squadron

 

Construction

 

Type: Focke-Wulf Fw 190  D-9

Scale: 1/48

Producer: Trimaster / DML

 

 

Modifications / Additions:

  • The kit has been bought from an other member of model club in which I am member. It is a mix of the Trimaster kit (photo etched parts, white metal parts for ETC, Trimaster  instruction) and the DML Kit (plastic landing gear) 

  • Use of Model Design Constructions correction set for wheel well including the rear part of the engine .

 

 

  • MDC resin cockpit to replace the original photo etched and flat original cockpit

  • Spinner and propeller blades from MDC

  • Flaps from Qickboost

  • Tubes for brakes added by means of brass wire

  • Pushing rods for motor cowling flaps added.

 

 

Painting and Markings

 

Finishing started with pre shading with Tamiya's black acrylic paint. For the camouflage scheme RLM76, RLM75, RLM81 and RLM83 of X-Tra colors have been used.

 

 

Markings have been taken from Kommandeur Decals. For stenceling the original kit decals have been used because their print is more clear and readable .  The model displays FW 190 D-9, SerialNo. 211934 allocated to the technical officer of II. JG6. This plane has been landed by an unknown pilot on may, 8th 1945 on Fürth ( Bay.) Airfield to surrender.

 

 

Conclusion

 

Although designed for other basic kits (MDC for Tamiya and Quickboost for Eduard) the used upgrade / correction sets can be used without any problems to upgrade the old Trimaster / DML kit of the FW 190 D-9.
