Great Wall Hobby 1/48th FW-198A1 "Nachtjager" Build Pt.IV

1/48th Great Wall Hobby FW-189 A1 Build.
Part IV – Getting better every day… sealing the deal and ready to paint.

When we left the Fw 189 kit last time we had the whole major structure together and the kit was looking pretty structurally sound. Next was the masking of the glass that surrounds the cockpit and fuselage  and to go to the undercoat and painting stages - but first to seal many of the seams that are created by a twin-boom multi-engined aircraft.

1/48th Great Wall Hobby Focke Wulf Fw189A-1 “Nachtjäger” Pt III

Hey guys n’ gals – The third part of my build of the Great wall hobby Fw189A-1 “Nachtjäger” is ready.

So read on here as I show you the harder parts of this kit’s assembly and how to best these challenges so you reap the rewards later on with this lovely little “Uhu” kit.

Part III – The only easy day is yesterday…
