    Fw 190A-8 "Red 19" of 5./JG300 Ernst Schröder Gruppe Build

    Gruppe Build
    "Mr. Ernst Schröder was born in May 1922 in Köln (Cologne) and developed at an early age, a liking for the aircraft that he could watch not far from his home at the airport Köln-Butzweilerhof. He started to carve models of the aircraft out of wood. He still has some of these models today!.

    In 1941 he volunteered to the Luftwaffe and was trained as a mechanic on the He-111. His wish to become a pilot started to become a reality when he was transferred to Kaufbeuren to the pilot school A23 on May 13. 1943. Here he flew Bu-181, Bu-131 Kl-35 and Go-145. After receiving his pilot licence he was transferred in January 1944 to JG.101 in Pau/Lourdes in the south of France for fighter pilot training. He trained on Ar 96, Fw 56, Ar 68, D.520, Me 108, Me 109G-10, Me 109E, Me 109G-2 and Me 109G-6. One of his commanding officers there was Major Walter Nowotny.

    In June 1944 he was transferred to the Jagdergänzungsgruppe West were he was introduced to the Fw 190. By this time he had made 449 flights.

    On August 6th, 1944 he was posted to 5.JG.300. Lt. Bretschneider lead the Staffel. In the next five weeks he made another twelve flights, totalling 8 hours and 50 minutes, in Fw 190’s, making test flights, and transferring aircraft to and from maintenance depots. His first combat flight was on August 6. 1944. He flew 19 of his 41 combat flights with Fw 190A-8/R8 Red 19. His last flight in this aircraft was on October 10th, 1944 when he belly-landed Red 19 after a fight with a P-51 Mustang.

    At war’s end he escaped becoming a prisoner of war by writing himself dismissal papers in an abandoned Luftwaffe office truck!"




    I found this nice kit by Hasegawa in 1/48 scale.


    It came with a good decal set. It looks historic and correct.


    and the directions seem detailed and easy to read. I am an inexperienced modeller and do not have an airbrush so I will be hand brushing everything.

    Ah! If it is enamel, then they definitely WON'T mix with water! You need to wipe your brush as previously described, and clean it with either enamel thinners or White Spirit. Enamel paints are oil-based, and behave in a totally different manner to acrylics, which are basically either water-based, or water soluble, with an alchohol (or similar) base.
    With enamels, do not overload the brush, and it is better to put a small amount of paint, ready to use, in some form of pallet - a jar lid or similar is ideal. Ensure that the paint, in the tin/bottle, is stirred THOROUGHLY before use, every time, in order to mix-in the pigments with the oil-based 'carrier'. Even when you have transferred a little to your pallet, give it another stir/mix, especially with matt paints, otherwise the matting agent in the latter will not mix-in properly, and you could end up with a patchy/streaky effect, and it may take longer to dry. You might find that enamel paints, especially if slightly thinned (with enamel thinners or White Spirit), will 'go further' than acrylics which, by their very nature, want to dry almost as soon as they are applied. This means that you have to 'lay off' the paint more - brush it out on the surface being painted, until it is apparent that more paint is needed on the brush. This will avoid a build-up of paint in any one area, and ensure even, smooth application and drying.
    Brushes should be cleaned with either brush cleaner or, as I do, with White Spirit. Wipe off as much paint as possible, using a clean tissue or similar, then dip in White Spirit. Wipe again, to remove the bulk of the paint then, if neccessary, leave in white spirit for a minute or two, and repeat until clean. Dry the brush on tissue to remove any excess spirit, then store as normal, preferably vertical, tip up.
    Hopefully, this will have helped. Sorry I can't be more specific at this stage, but I haven't used Model Master paints which are, as far as I have seen, enamels.

    Hello,
    my first post on this great forum
    Will try to help a little - below 2 more photos of Schröder's mount, published last year on hyperscale.com.
    Moreover, I've read on TOCH last year, that II./JG 300 had 5 EZ 40s installed in their Fw 190s during mid-August 1944. Lt. Bretschneider, SK of 5./JG 300; and Uffz. Schröder of 5./JG 300 had two of these.


    Regards,
    Maciej
