Another 1/48 Hasegawa Fw-190A-4
Another project from the stash of the modeler's estate sale. This is what happens if you fail in your assignment to build everything in your stash: your wife puts them in the estate sale cheap and somebody like me comes along and gets to have all the fun. 🙂
Model is basically OOB. I used Eduard seat belts and Lifelike Decals "Fw-190 No.2", to do the Fw-190A-4 flown by Hauptmann Siegfried Schnell of 4./JG 2 in spring/summer 1943. Schnell eventually scored 90 victories on the Channel Front by the end of January 1944, including 12 B-17s, making him the #11 Luftwaffe experte on the Channel Front, and one of the leading bomber-killers. He scored three more in February 1944 after being transferred to the Eastern Front with JG 54, before being shot down 10 days after his arrival.
