It is well worth your time to watch the following 12 minutes of video. You will be amazed at the level of detail you never thought possible on a plastic 1:48 scale model of the Focke-Wulf Fw-190
This was all done by Czech modler David Damek, actually, you should watch some of his other videos to get some more look at the crazy skillz he has. He spends nearly a half hour making an F-35A in these two videos.
I think the most impressive part of this is how he uses paint to distress the model and give it a weathered look. That combined with putting in the lines of rivets, it’s all cool. The level of detail on the inside of the plane, something that’s only visible through a small hatch is crazy. It’s really cool.
I remember building these plastic models with my dad when I was a kid. I never got this detailed. Heck, I don’t think I even spent as much time trying to get the decals lined up. David really knows how to use a Q-tip for it’s true intended purpose.
