I've searched YouTube today and found a truelly interesting video of the subject aircraft, which seems to have that World War 2 American aircraft charisma. Something from post war Cadillac - big and secure. At least seems so.
Anyway, here you go:
"There will be only one new kit in March, which will be the Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-5 in the Weekend Edition. So, nothing really new in the true sense of the word. Just a notice for the guys who love to compare prices, these WEEKEND kits bring similar box contents as the other manufacturers’ standard kits. Plastic, decals, and instructions. The photo-etch and masks are still a little bit above standard.
In April, we want to re-release the Spitfire Mk.22/24 in 1/48th scale. I forgot to let you know about this in the January newsletter, so you know it now. There will also be the I-16 type 10 in Spanish markings in a Weekend Edition offering.
"...Last week we had a tough time with the Fw 190D nose, when the final shape didn’t jive with the blueprint plan. We spent long hours analyzing the problem, and to try and figure out why it didn’t look right. Finally, we got the nose which we were happy with, but it doesn’t mean it will be accepted by all future critics. Simply put, whoever sees the result for the first time, hasn’t necessarily the experience of these hours of analysis, or the done and re-done trial shapes."One thing I haven't understood - which scale it's going to be?
"Hybrid Painting Method" for natural metal
This method is hybrid of airbrush and brush painting. First, Mr.color's Super Metallic Chrome Silver was sprayed (slightly mixed #2 black). Second, Mr.color's Chrome Silver (straight from the bottle) was drybrushed on the sprayed surface. Drybrushed silver can express hairlines on the natural matal surface. Detailed painting method is as follows.
#1000 surfacer -> #8 Silver (for the base) -> Chrome Silver + #2 Black (spraying) -> Chrome Silver (drybrushing) -> #46 Clear (spraying) -> Markings(Yellow, Olive Drab, Insignia, etc) -> #2000 sand paper polishing (only for marking portions) -> decals -> #46 Clear & #30+46 Flat Clear (only for Olive Drab portion) -> weathering
