I would like to enter with a new tool Airfix Fw 190, sporting one of the markings shown on this set of decals:-
Would this meet with the rules of the GB?
Martay, I am going to go for the yellow and red one, number 4, rather than the blue one (number 1), because the yellow and red one is an F-8. Vinny, unfortunately the blue one is an A-5, and the Airfix kit in 1:72 only offers an A-8/F-8. (I have already the all red A-8 in the "partly done" box. ) As this will be an OOB build, I don't want to be making changes.
I'll go and buy the Airfix kit at the weekend and make a start next week.
As you can see, the decals have suffered some water damage (I purchased the kit some years back at the Telford Kitswop, where this kind of thing can happen).
So using the Karaya decals for Captured Butcherbirds, as previously mentioned, is a good way to make sure that the kit will be built (and it allows the stash to get a teeny bit smaller......)
These are the decals I will be using, with a view on the right of the yellow, black and red "camo" that I intend to portray:-
And here are some shots of the sprues:-
As I have just tonight finished my group build project over on the IPMS Ireland forum, of the monolith from 2001:A Space Odyssey, I can make a start on this Fw 190 tomorrow evening.
Thanks for looking,

What is the issue with the wheel wells? Is it that they are too shallow (and therefore need replacement with aftermarket), or something else that is easier to fix?
and a start was made on painting the cockpit RLM 66 (Tamiya Nato Black). A second coat will be needed. Also the engine and props have got a first black coat, preparatory to some dry-brushing etc.
More next week....
