Focke-Wulf Fw 189A-1

by Hubert Ortinger


Focke-Wulf Fw 189A-1


MPM's 1/48 scale Fw 189A is available online from Squadron.com




Here is a vignette based around my MPM 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 189A-1 as used in Finland during1943.

The kit is a typical short-run affair, with thick styrene castings and rough surface texture, but of a rare and interesting subject!

If you are not afraid of a challenge, this kit will form the foundation for a great model.



However, I did have to do a lot of scratchbuilding and correction for better an acceptable result.  I also used two MG 15 machine guns from Aires with ammunition boxes.

Finally, I summoned all of my courage and cut open the canopy with a small saw: The cap covers a little crack in the "glass".

The figures are from Hecker & Goros; the van from Gasoline. And look - it is terribly cold, isnīt it!
