Hi folks,

After my recent Tempest build, I decided to set myself a target as to how fast I could build a model. I chose the Tamiya FW190 as an easy build, and set to work. Suffice it to say that by the same time the next evening I'd got the thing assembled, painted, Kleared and ready to decal. It was at that point that I realised half the kit decals were missing... so much for the record.

As luck would have it, my good friend Karl came to the rescue the next day with a selection of decals, and I was on the way again. I didn't get the record I should have, but it's still my fastest ever 'serious' build, taking only 17 hours work to complete. I'm quite pleased that all the painting was done freehand with the airbrush - the only masking on the whole thing was for the yellow rudder and nose.

I did it OOB, with many glaring errors which I'm not at all bothered about. It was meant to be a fun build, and so it turned out to be.

So for the second time in a week (!) here's the RFI:

Walkround first:














Then some flyaround shots:








And a couple of closer shots:






Is it me, or does my recently finished Tempest make the Butcher Bird look dainty by comparison?


Hope you like it,
Dean

...for so easily showing up blokes like me who spend months/years on a build and make it look less than that

What a nice clean butcher bird, I love it.

Well done and thanks for sharing.





Cheers,

Ben Hietbrink

Really well done superb paint work too. I nice pics, not really dainty, in fact the 190 was much smaller than the Tempest.

17 hours seems about right for total build time, we just never jam it all in one day!! looks great thinking of a 1/48 P-51 and see if i could do it over a weekend.....very motivating idea!!!

I love the turn around time. I just burned a cockpit out for a 1/72nd Meteor. Blazed her out in ....2....weeks! .. for an out of the box build! Geesh! I'm not good ... but I'm slow.
