SWAT…1/48 Focke-Wulf Fw190A-8 with Blohm&Voss BV246 Hagelkorn


And a third and last finished 190 for now.
Hasegawa kit (limited edition), Eduard seatbelts, details added like brake lines, landing gear indicators and tailwheel retraction wire. EZ Line was used for the antenna wire, AK Real Colors RLM74/75/76 for the camo.

The kit included resin pieces for the Hagelkorn but most parts were slightly warped. my dad couldn´t get it aligned correctly under the aircraft, especially the curve of the bomb wings. In the end I found out that there is still a plastic kit Hagelkorn available from Condor (missile set with Fritz X). The thing is a bit more crude than the Hasegawa resin one and slightly bigger. My dad added a spacer between rack and bomb so that the bomb wings weren´t bent downwards too much.

The model shows one of the testbeds for this weapon system.
