1/32 Hasegawa –Montex Focke Wulf Fw 190Aa3 TuAF

This is 1/32 Hasegawa –Montex Fw 190Aa3 with the markings of TuAF.
Fw 190Aa3 was the export version of Fw 190 A3 and have not wing root guns.
Turkey was received 72 Fw 190Aa3 and the first flight was made on July 1943. They remained in service until the end of 1947.
Turkey used Fw 190Aa3 and Spitfire Mk.V together in the same squadron
The Turkish Aa3 armament was two units 20mm cannons and two units 7.9nmm MG17.
Also there was no FuG 25 IFF device in the radio equipment.

Enormous efforts were devoted in order to keep these aircrafts operational. Some 190s were painted in RAF colours due to stock availability during their service period. And this aircraft had a tail from another one in RAF colors. And also note that the cowling colors are different, probably from another 190 with different colors like RLM 71/02/65.

Base kit is Hasegawa Fw 190 A5. I have used Montex A3 conversion set for backdating
I have used AML resin seat and Quickboost exhaust set.
Paints are Gunze Sangyo acrylics.

Happy Modelling

  1. Tolga,

    A real treat to see your work but, it’s neat to learn a little more about Turkish history too.

    I like the staining of the exhausts and the gun ejection shoots. The weathering as always is not over stated and the photography goes along way to show the best of your work.

    Two thumbs up.

  2. Congratulations, Tolga! This is yet another one of your amazing builds!
    I love the combination of different tail and cowling: looks very realistic and reflects the effort of the personnel to keep as many of those birds as possible in flying condition.
    It is very interesting that Wurgers and Spits flew together. The last pic is fantastic.
    Well done, my friend! Your Wurger looks 1:1!

  3. Very nice build, Tolga.
    Thanks for sharing that information, I didn’t know that Turkey used those Wurgers.
    That last picture is great. A Spit and Wurger as friends.

  4. Another Tolga Topper! Beautiful work as usual.

  5. Beautiful aircraft. I’m off to see if I can find the markings in 1:48…………………………………….

  6. How interesting! I had no idea Turkey had used the FW190 for so long!

  7. Another very cool build – love the components of 3 different aircraft on one airframe! Great history – especially using Spitfires and 190’s by same user – new piece of history to me. Well done as always!

  8. Well done Tolga! I shall be checking the links given by you and Chuck to see if I should press a 190 in between my 109’s 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this very interesting plane (@tolgaul).
