Nothing beats paint for that “painted on look”. For National markings, in larger scales, in particular a measurable benefit can be obtained from the use of painting masks.

Montex has come to the aid of anyone building the quite large 1/24 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190D from Trumpeter with two sets of unique markings, a complete set of national markings and canopy masks.

Marking Options

Two late war Fw190D-9 aircraft are depicted on the masks. These are:

  1. White 11 of the 13./JG 51 flown by Fhj. Ofw Heinz Marquardt in April 1945 out of Eggersdorf Germany. From the ref pictures I had on had this is a very dirty aircraft and indeed the real aircraft had panels replaced all over the airframe. It would appear the front engine access panels are from a different aircraft and are finished in a combination of RLM 76 and RLM 82 the fuselage is c combination of RLM 76a, 82 and 83. The underside is a combination of RLM 76a and 76 with the undercarriage doors in either primer or RLM 75.

  2. White 1 of 13./JG 51, Flown by Fhj .Ofw Kurt Tanzer in April 1945 out of Eggersdorf Germany. This aircraft is a handsome one and has a soft mottle of RLM 75 and 82 on the fuselage and this colour combination carries on the top of the wing in a soft splinter pattern. The underside sides are RLM 76. This would make a great model in my view.




This mask set is a very handy accessory for delivering a different look to your big Trumpeter Dora. The canopy masks in particular are very well done and the combination of both and inside and outside mask is a great idea…. nothing worse than shiny grey paint on the inside of German aircraft!
