This is a plastic 1/48 Focke-Wulf Fw-190 A3 Airplane from Tamiya. When the first Fw190's appeared in 1941 they were a serious threat to RAF air superiority in the skies over occupied France. Their 1700HP BMW801 radial engine and superb maneuverability gave them a performance edge that was not challenged until the RAF started receiving the improved Spitfire Mk IX. The Tamiya Fw190 A-3 builds up into a highly detailed 1/48th scale replica and includes high-quality water-activated decals for three aircraft.
Highly detailed 1/48th scale plastic kit for static display. Approximately 50 parts in medium grey and clear with fine recessed panel lines. Detailed engine and wheel well. Multi-part canopy may be posed open or closed. Rotating propellor: the propellor plugs into a polythene bushing which allows adding it late in assembly so there is less chance of breakage. Highly detailed cockpit with accurate instrument panel, seat, control stick and rudder pedals, bulkheads, and sculpted pilot figure. Detailed pictorial instructions with a separate sheet for color details.
