El Focke-Wulf Fw 190, nicknamed Shrike ('Shrike' in German), was a German fighter plane of World War II designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930. This single-seat aircraft powered by a radial engine fighter was the last German piston mass produced into action in war. It replaced the partially successful Messerschmitt Bf 109 from 1941. Since production began in 1941 was continuously improved to the end of the war, during that time were made over 20.000 copies. In 1945, Fw 190 operating effectively in all fronts.
The Fw 190 was highly appreciated by its pilots, and since his first bout in 1941, quickly proved superior in all aspects, except turning radius, the main fighter of the Royal Air Force, el Supermarine Spitfire Mk. V. It was not until the introduction of vastly improved Spitfire Mk. IX in autumn 1942 when equality is restored qualitative. In their latest versions maintained a qualitative parity with Allied fighters last.
Motor BMW 801D. Additionally also mounts a fuel tank 95 fuselage liters. Its armament consists of two machine guns MG 131 de 13 mm on the hood, two guns MG 151 20mm near the root wing cannons and two optional MG 151 de 20 mm or two guns Mk 108 30mm in them designed to support the wing, beyond the undercarriage. It began manufacturing in December 1943 and was made in a number of 1334 appliances. Incorporated the GM-1 enhancer based power nitrous oxide. Some were modified as S-8, i.e., seater coaches. It was the last sub-variant occurred.
Installation and coloring kit:We started with the kit, anchors of it are something bad and you have to use some sandpaper and putty although the absence of excess plastic makes shorter working with the cutter, but with patience you will come to fruition. Once we mounted the painting process, the colors used in this plane are the RLM 74,75,76 corresponding to the color chart Model Air (Vallejo) 71054(RLM 74), 71128 (RLM 75) may be substituted by 71052 and 71046 (RLM 76).Apply the primer in this case I used spray primer gray finish Vallejo, although there is for airbrush, This is quick looks good and dry in minutes.I start protecting the glass cockpit for the painting process with Mascol, then apply black XF-1 Tamiya paneling lines to highlight them once applied based color.
Gris claro for low and half the side of the device, XF-80.
Medium gray to the base of the side and frontal plane, XF-54.
Dark gray for mimicked, XF- 24.
Apply light gray with the airbrush for the bottom and sides of decreasing the amount Focker lines paneling not completely eliminate the black.
The next step is to create the mapping for this camouflage and dark gray add freehand airbrush. I follow the same process as before to highlight the dark gray paneling on adding some white base color in proportion to 90/10.Add all the missing piece by pasting, wheels and propeller, paint tubes and machine guns black.
I leave several days to dry the glossy varnish and proceed to paneling, for this I use a black liquid that can be left to dry in the recesses ideal to highlight the lines layer, remove the excess with a cloth or cotton pad dampened, in other models I used oils that give the same result, but models with some supermarkets and letting work with materials more manageable use this type of washing.
