Today, when people talk about a 1/72 Fw 190, most of them think of the Eduard kit. But 17 years ago, Tamiya released a model that is, especially when you think about its age, not inferior.
So I thought, after sittings years on my stash, it was time to built this model and see if it can still compete with the modern kits.
I added a Eduard Cockpit Set, Eduard flaps, Master brass MG's and pitot tube and did some riveting
Paintjob was done with Gunze Aqueos and weathering with oilpaints and Tamiya weathering Sets
