· FOCKE WULF FW-190F-8
Revell - 1:72 - Sergio Bellomo

The represented plane is a Fw-190F-8 captured at the end of the WWII. The very interesting scheme of painting, it's a sample of the difficult conditions in which was operating the Luftwaffe in 1945. The lowest part of the wings presents zones in natural metal and others in RLM 76 Hellgrau. This color spreads to the fuselage sides, which top part was painted in RLM81 Braunviolet and RLM82 Grun. The top part of the wings also was painted with these three colors, in very irregular contour areas.
For the construction of the model, I began for cutting the back of the fuselage (to be able to do the opened cabin), the door of lateral access, and the panels that cover the engine, to place there the beautiful BMW801 from Aires. Also added both machine guns MG131 on the fuselage, and I scracht build the chutes of ammunition, the bench of the engine and the exhaust pipes.
