Fw 190 F-8 (Revell 1/72)
Finished in SG 4 markings, Italy spring 1944.
Just finished - but the sun is so strong here today it's making the 'sandgelb' look a little 'pink'. The mottle is a bit heavy-handed (didn't turn the compressor down - I realise that now!). Exhaust staining with Windsor & Newton acrylic varnish coloured with a little 'leather brown'...note Mickey Mouse unit emblem, over-painted fuselage band and over-painted swastika, not a decal..
