Focke Wulf - V-18

Here are some images of Dave Porter's 1/48 scale Planet Models Focke Wulf V-18.
This is one of the experimental high altitude FW-190’s complete with supercharging, pressurization, and a four blade paddle propeller. This aircraft was a very good performer but was expensive to build. It turned out to be a better choice to produce the “Dora” model of the FW-190. Dave built this model to represent the V-18 as if entered regular service with the Luftwaffe. The decals are from Aeromaster as well as the paint. The kit did not fit very well and it requires a lot of filling, sanding, and shims to get the desired result. The level of detail is very good for a resin kit.

I make this model of MPM and is one of the most beautiful FW of the family.
Good work and very difficult.

Thanks. I agree. This is one of the nicest of the FW-190 series.
