My first finished model! (Revell 03926, Focke Wulf Fw190A-8, A-8/R11 Nightfighter 1/32)

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!

Groetjes,

Dan

    1. 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!

  1. 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?

    1. 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!

    1. 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!
