Product Description

Product Description

This is an Airfix 1/24 Scale assembly and painting required plastic model kit of the Fw 190A, the initial short-nose model of the venerable Focke-Wulf Fw190, a World War II single-seat, single-engine fighter of the German Luftwaffe. Model kit features: Detailed engine and cockpit. L: 368 mm x W: 437 mm. 171 parts. Skill level 4. Nicknamed the "Butcher-bird" by Allied pilots, the 190 was a fighter aircraft that inspired both fear and respect by those who encountered it in combat. Originally developed by Kurt Tank to serve as backup for the highly successful Messerschmitt Bf109, the Focke-Wulf 190 quickly proved itself as a highly capable frontline fighter aircraft, and before long, thousands of Fw190s were fighting alongside Messerschmitt 109s over skies of Europe. Over 20,000 Focke-Wulf 190 of all variants were produced by Germany in the Second World War, and some of the Luftwaffe's most successful fighter aces in World War II flew the Fw190. The A Series Fw190 was the original short-nose design, and the type was fitted with a variety of BMW radial engines and armed with four machine guns (two fuselage-mounted & two wing-root mounted) and two wing-mounted 20 mm cannons. Some 6,000 ground attack variants of the Fw190 (the F and G models) were also produced and utilized with success by the Luftwaffe, a testament to the type's versatility.

From the Manufacturer

The Focke-Wulf Fw 190, often called Butcher-bird, was a single seat, single engine fighter aircraft and one of the best fighters of its generation. Production ran from 1941 to the end of hostilities.

I give this kit from Airfix three stars because if you put the work in it can be made into a very nice 1:24th scale model of the Focke Wulf 190.

Airfix give you the choice of the A-5 or the A-6 and the decals of two aircraft and a pilot figure if you wish to use it.

I have to say I am an older modeller and have been building Airfix kits for decades and have always found them always to be of good quality and reasonably easy to build. Even the 1:24th scale P-51 Mustang was well made, and beautifully detailed. But this FW 190 has to be the worst kit I have ever seen put out by Airfix. The issues are many.

If you follow the instruction sheet, as I usually do, you end up building the engine and fitting it into the fuselage (all nicely painted and detailed), only to discover much later into the build that there is no way you can get the whole assembly to fit properly inside the cowling. It's simply too long. My urgent advice to those who come to this kit, is to omit part 36 at step 12 of the instructions.

At step 24 will have the challenge of the wheel well housings that fit in behind the engine bay, below the front of the cockpit. They will simply not fit where they are supposed to be positioned and then allow the wings to be attached to the fuselage. They have to be pared down before you try getting the wings in place at step 41. Oh and when you do you find the wings have to be weighed down to get the correct angle when attaching them to the fuselage because if you don't you're going to have large gaps at the wing root and the wings will not have the correct angle because they haven't been moulded with that correct angle. They're almost flat.
