Hobbyboss Fw 190 V18 - first look, in box build review






Hobbyboss Fw 190 V18...and foil baking tray! Once again I've been taken in by the nice box and a machine I've always wanted to build but for some reason there's a major omission - a total lack of fuselage fairings for the turbocharger pipework which are quite clearly evident on the box art. I'm thinking I can 'scratch' something with the tin foil tray perhaps..

  1. Would a baking tray tin foil be too thick, though?

  2. hmm..maybe. But I'm thinking I'll need something fairly rigid to hold its shape, something that can be riveted too. We'll see soon enough I guess..
