Egon Mayer´s Focke Wulf Fw 190A-5.
Egon Mayer was a World War Two German fighter pilot born in 1917 in Konstanz, Germany.
He enlisted in the Luftwaffe in 1937, being sent to JG 2 “Richtofen” in 1939, just in time for the Battle of France, and flew until his death in 1944, when he was leading an attack formation against USAAF B-17 bombers.
At the time of his death, he had a tally of 102 victories, for which he was posthumously awarded the Knight´s Cross with the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords.
Another Hasegawa 1:48 Fw 190. I followed Eduard´s painting instructions for this kit.
The kit was going to originally be painted as Walter Nowotny´s Fw 190A-5, but after much back and forth and a badly masked yellow Eastern Front band, I decided to start over (with aftermarket decals for the upper crosses).
