I have to be honest: the closer I got to the finish line, the more I started thinking about the next build. The kit itself has been excellent, but with all the things I have learned during this project I have some less than perfect results. In itself I am fine with that: I made it through even though I knew the result would not be perfect, which is a huge thing for me. I accepted that this was a learning project and kept my head down.
That said, the final days I kind of rushed it. I want to try and apply the things I’ve learned on a new project! But rushing is an especially bad combination when working on a model full of fragile parts, some of which have been broken off earlier.
Before starting on the next project I will however first be making a blog about the things I like and don’t like about my version of this, and the lessons I have learned so far!
Without further ado, the pictures of the end result!
Oh, and don’t mind the makeshift ‘studio’ I improvised for the photos..
As always, I am thankful for feedback!

It’s good to have one done, and it looks pretty good.
Thank you Dave, and also for your feedback during this build! I am not overly excited about the result, but this was always going to be a learning experience I guess. Better luck next time!
Well done, Dan. First one complete and after following your progress on this kit on your blog, it sounds like you have learned a lot in the process.
So, what’s next?
Thank you Brett and for your feedback as well during this build! I’m planning on continuing on the Boeing 747-8F Cargolux freighter I’ve started, and then I want to build the A6M5 kit I got from my dad. I need new decals for that so I’m going to look if I can find anything else in terms of aftermarket parts for this type. And even further in the future I still have the rest of the pile I got from my dad, I want to do my first armor kit and I would love the build a formula 1 car, the Mclaren MCL32 to be exact but it still has to be released at this point! So, plenty of plans for the future I would say!
… And it looks good Dan. Also it seems to me that this is not a bad 1/32 FW190 kit to have. Thanks for sharing the build
Thank you! I don’t have enough comparison to say but it would be great if you and others can get an impression by looking at my build that makes me pretty happy!
Well done! I look forward to watching the next one.
Thank you! Already started!
Good effort Dan! I like it!
Thank you! Really looking forward to my next warplane!
