Stunning Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-9 Dora in 1/5 scale
May 2, 2015 in Aviation
While my extensive coverage of the Moson Model Show is over, I couldn’t resist sharing this one more thing. Besides all the variety of modeling on display, the proverbial show-stopper of the event was this 1/5 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-9 built by Austrian modeler Klaus Herold. Not obvious at the first sight, not only is this a stunning replica of Kurt Tank’s classic fighter (it would seem accurate down to every rivet), but also a flyable one – the only giveaway being a discrete cutout for the actual engine in the lower cowling.
Note the difference in size between this model and its 1/32 sibling displayed on the same table… both “small scale” models have been completed by the same builder, who’s interests extend also to plastic modeling.
