Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

First flying in 1939, the Focke-Wulf Fw190 proved to be an immediate threat to RAF fighters when introduced in late 1941, being faster and more manoeuvrable than the Spitfire V then in service. The F-8 was the ground attack version and differed primarily in the removal of the outboard cannons. Various combinations founder wing weapons were fired, but the most common was one centreline bomb and 4 small bombs on the wings. The A-8 version was the most numerous and heavily armed variant and entered service in 1944 as an attempt to stop Allied daylight raids, however, by then new Allied fighters had begun to outclass it. 

Kit comes molded in grey plastic with clear parts.  Decals are also included. The two marking options are:

-Focke-Wulf Fw 190 F-8, I/Schlachtgeschwader 2 Immelmann, Hungary, 1945.
