Hi all ,
here some images of my Focke Wulf FW189 B-1 (ex V5), belonging to an unknown Fliegerführerschule,
seen probably at Brandenburg-Briest air base at the beginning of 1940.
The kit is not too bad, but requires some additions and modifications, particularly in the cockpit, engines and landing gear areas.
The model is totally handbrushed.
Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking

That's a version of the Fw189 I'd never seen before--that would be a fun airplane to own and fly the family around in today.

Splendid work again Giampiero

Especially the fit of the clear parts is superior, looks like a vac canopy

And your hand brush skills can rival with the best airbrush work

Thanks for the WIP pictures on the interior - it seems this kit needs a little bit more work then I imagined, I have one too and I always thought of doing it as a quick build... guess I can shelf that idea now

What a great looking interior. Both detailing and painting.

Cheers, Vic
