Thanks Jon.

Cocktail anyone?

Undercarriage and doors are attached and today I glued on the canopies.  It's amazing how that one action changed it from looking like a partially built model to one that is nearly completed.
Just the prop, spinner and fan to add and then some touching up and very minor weathering.  Painting the prop is giving me some issues as my last remaining can of silver car touch up paint is spitting small blobs of paint.  I'll have to sand it back and go to plan C.

Looking very good - I can imagine it flying formation with my orange Jägermeister He 100... causing serious headache the next day.  ;)

FW-190A8 Martini Racing.

Following Hitler's assassination and the ensuing armistice surplus Luftwaffe aircraft were sold to the highest bidders.  Many single seat fighters ended their days on the popular international Air Racing circuit.
With nitrous oxide injection as standard from the factory the FW-190A8 proved successful in those classes where chemical supercharging was allowed.  Modifications from stock varied between racing teams but all included lightening by removing all military equipment including radios.

Very smart indeed Fred!  :thumbsup:

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Thanks folks.

I'd forgotten the old TV advertising.  Joan Collins & Leonard Rossiter?

<edit - oops, no.  That was Cinzano>
