Description

 

Here is my Trimaster 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8/Neptun.

I finished this model in the markings of an aircraft, "White 14", glimpsed in a photo behind the famous radar-equipped Wurger of Gunter Migge. This photo appears in "Luftwaffe At War 2 -  Nightfighters over the Reich" by Manfred Griehl (Greenhill).

"White 14" features a personal marking under the cockpit, but it is not legible in this photo. I have therefore made the decision to add the word "Valhalla". I was inspired to use the word "Valhalla" by the lyrics of Robert Plant!
