In honor of D-Day: Priller’s Wurger

This is the 1/32 Hasegawa Fw-190A-8, done in the markings of Josef Priller, Kommodore of JG 26, the airplane in which he made his famous “strafing run” over Juno, Gold and Sword beaches on D-Day, the only appearance of the Luftwaffe that day.

The kit was modified by making the lightweight drop tank rack favored by JG 26.
