The last of radial-engined 190s

October 14, 2019 · in Aviation · 14 · 1.4K

Hello guys!

The Fw190 has long been one of my favorites. It had a vast range of variations, just like its counterpart with a liquid-cooled engine, Bf109. The model I built this time is of A-9, the last of A series. Although it is virtually impossible to discriminate A-9s from A-8s by outer appearances, the W.Nr.750114I shows it was one from a small batch of A-9s produced by the factory Mimetall. An interesting feature of this particular aircraft is that it was attached with counterweights on the root of propeller blades.

I built this Eduard kit OOB, including the decals of 13./JG54; the counterweights of propellers were also included in PE parts! The colors of upper surfaces, grey 74 and green 82, are purely based on my speculation to evoke the “atmosphere” of a late-war radial engined 190. I hope you like it.

Thank you for watching.

  2. Thank you Craig!

    A great rendition of a FW-190 A-9, Shun.
    Nice application of a subtle weathering, and good paint work.

    • Thank you DE4EVER for comments on paint work. Late war German camo's are rather chaotic, but the chaos itself is one a source of attraction, I think.

  4. I like this a lot - you made the most of an excellent kit to start with

  5. Very nice Wurger of the seldom seen last of the Anton series. It also happens to be the last of the “old” Eduard moulds for the Focke-Wulf, and I can honestly say you did a great job getting it all closed up without flaws.

  6. Thank you Pedro. I did'nt know Eduard had issued a new line of 190. I hope to build it in the near future.

  7. That is a very fine looking aircraft with different camo...I like it a lot

  8. Looks excellent - well done!
