Intermission – Tamiya Focke Wulf Fw 190D 9

Updated 15 August 2021

My grandson was spending the day with his grandfather yesterday so I had no time to paint anything. However Inch High Guy is starting new builds.

He got me reflecting again on my collection.

My first encounter with the Fw 190 D was in 1960 while reading Le Grand Cirque written in 1948 by Pierre Clostermann.


There was an image I still vividly recall, well almost.

I thought it was this one found on Wikipedia.


I was wrong.

Here’s what’s inside the book.




This recollection led me to buy this model kit before the pandemic.

I remember building Fujimi’s 1/48 scale Fw 190 D in the 70s.–326131

The instructions are down here…


Some reviews can be found on the Internet.

I know I should start building this model instead but I know it won’t be a piece of cake.
