Fw 190A-8/R11 Neptune of Ofw. Günther Migge
This is the Fw 190A-8/R11 Neptune of Ofw. Günther Migge, 1./NJGr. 10, Werneuchen Germany 1944. Migge ended the war with eight victories, all at night. The kit is Eduard’s Fw 190A-8 in 1/72 scale, with the Eduard resin engine and gun bay detail set. The radar arrays are Hasegawa supports with Albion tube and Nitenol aerials.
Eduard’s Fw 190s are the best 72nd scale 190s on the market today. They are well researched and molded. Eduard has gone to great lengths to provide the proper parts to accurately model each variant and to account for the differences in bulges and equipment. Detail is unsurpassed. Decals are the equal of anything on the aftermarket and the schemes are interesting. These kits are a bit fiddly to assemble, and will punish modelers who skimp on test fitting or parts clean up. There are specific areas which other manufactures have done better but in all, Eduard’s 190s are excellent offerings and the best place to start if you’re building an Fw 190.
