 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 Fw190 to have the MG FF cannons.

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 kit has highly detailed and not for beginners. It is made from injection moulded plastic but is very complex with full engine and cockpit detail. In this kit you get an optional drop tank, bomb and granaten werfers. This sort of kit would really suit an advanced modeller, especially those who want to show off their skills in modelling competitions. 

There are markings for 4 planes:
1/JG54 'Grunherz', flown by Hpt Walther Nowotny, Orel, Autumn 1943;
3/JG2 'Richthofen', flown by Hpt Egon Mayer, France, Spring 1943;
1/JG1, flown by Walther Kohne (A-5/R6 with Wgr 21 fitted), Deelen, Holland, July 1943 and
Stab 1/JG1, flown by Oblt Rolf Strohal, Deelen, Holland, April 1943
