Hasegawa Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-9 “Brown 4” of 7./JG 26 in 1/72 Scale

Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-9 W.Nr. 500647, better known as “Brown 4” is a popular subject with modelers due to its unusual camouflage and being fitted with the tail assembly designed for the Ta 152.  The camouflage has been interpreted in a variety of ways.  The source photographs were taken at Celle in April 1945.  They are in black and white, and show Brown 4 missing her cowling panels and canopy.  My model most closely follows the profile in the JaPo Fw 190D volume, but with RLM 75 under the wings which I feel is a better match for the photograph.  This is the Hasegawa kit with a resin tail and decals from AML.
