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 D series were interim fighters used as a stop gap measure while the superior Ta152 was being developed. The main difference was that they were powered by a Jumo inverted V-12 engine with annular radiator, instead of the BMW 801 Radial. Performance was greatly enhanced and they were able (with a good pilot) hold their own against the likes of the Mustang and Spitfire XIV. The Fw190D-12 was similar to the more well known D-9 but had a 30mm cannon mounted in the engine block, in place of the nose machine guns.

Hobby Boss are a Chinese company and are often affiliated with Trumpeter. Hobby Boss kits are generally well engineered with a high standard of detail. The Fw190D-12 is no exception, is also comes with a small etch fret which includes the seatbelts and a few other parts, as well as a sprue with optional bombs.  

There are markings for the prototype Fw190D-12.
