EDK11131 1/48 Focke-Wulf Fw-190A JaBo
- Customer Reviews
The Fw190 first went into service in the summer of 1941. It proved to be much better than the RAF's Spitfire Mk V and soon became known as the Butcher Bird. Early versions suffered from overheating problems, which weren't completely rectified until later models. The Jabo versions were fitted as fighter bombers and could carry 250kg or 500kg bombs under the fuselage. The A-5 was the last of the shorter fuselage A series Fw190's.
Eduard are a Czech based manufacturer famed for the model accessories. They have in the last few years released a successful range of kits. The Profipacks contain a kit with several marking options, along with a Colour Zoom etch set, Canopy Mask and a full colour instruction booklet. This is an all new tool kit that isn't based on the previous Fw190A kits by Eduard. This kit is more conventional and doesn't have all the engine, nose MG interior compartments or wing root cannon compartments. This means it will be simpler and more enjoyable to build and better suited for most modellers. It is still a highly detailed model kit, to Eduard's usual high standards and comes with decals for 5 different aircraft.
This kit as a bonus, also contains resin parts for the engine cowling with tropical filter, as well as wing racks and drop tanks.
