Got the Viggen decalled and flat-coated. The Flying Colors decals are beautifully printed, but are thin and brittle. It's a good thing they supply some duplicate markings, because I managed to ruin a few. God, I hate decal problems.
We're going through a very cold weather snap at the moment, so that means no serious airbrushing until I can open windows to vent fumes. In the meantime I've gone to town on this old thing. Otaki '190 and a Falcon vac fuselage and canopy.
Two-seat Fw.190s have to be the least documented version of that airplane ever built. I've found two pictures online of two different airplanes showing two different open canopy arrangements. Is either of them "standard?" I dunno. Maybe I'll just leave it closed. Being Falcon, it's certainly as thin and clear as one is going to find.
I've shaved the square gun bulges off the tops of the wings. I don't know if that's accurate, but allegedly the two-seaters carried no weapons. Did they use "standard" A-8 wings only minus the cannons? Was it easier and faster to just leave the square bulges in place? I have no hope of ever finding a look-down shot of one for the answer. So I guess it's a matter of prove me wrong, experts.
