The second set designed for Tamiya’s Fw190D-9 from Model Design Construction corrects and refines exterior detail.

Included are a totally new upper cowling incorporating the corrected profile of the upper gun hood, a set of VS111 prop blades which have trailing edges so wafer thin you could cut paper with them supported by separate hubs and spinner and a set of corrected diameter wheels.

Easily matching the quality and finesse of the previous set, the masters are this time by Robert Stephenson, who to anyone with a 190 addiction will be know as ‘The Wurger mechanic’. Roberts resin reputation precedes him and has been reviewed by Brett here on Hyperscale many times. Coupling Robert’s pattern making skills with MDC’s superb resin casting has produced resin details other manufacturers can only dream about.

The wheels are supplied with tread and as smooth tyres but have one set of common inserts, these fit so well that you don’t need adhesive, likewise the upper cowling fits the kit component perfectly.

As on all of MDC’s 190 sets there is little or no flash and minimal casting stubs which makes cleaning up and assembly a breeze.

Again, the images really speak for themselves.
