Notes on the new Eduard Fw-190s
First off: the kit lives up to the hype. Eduard has now done for the Fw-190 what they did for the Spitfire Merlin-60 series and the Bf-109G.
Interesting note: all the parts to do all the versions are there on the sprues. If you get the Fw-190A-5 kit, you can do an Fw-190A-5, A-6, A-7, A-8, A-8 night fighter with radar, F-3 and F-8.
One detail to watch for: as with most kit manufacturers, they includ the hatch for the GM2 tank on the lower rear fuselage in the lower wing part. If you’re doing anything before an A-8, you need to fill that in.
The landing gear (where many modelers come a cropper trying to get the angles right) is fool proof (it may not be i***t-proof, so do still take a bit of care).
It fits together better and easier than any other Fw-190 kit. If you can touch your nose three times in succession with your forefinger, you will have no difficulty whatsoever with this kit.
That’s all for now.
