This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The Fw-190 was intended to replace the Bf-109 and is considered to be the most advanced combat machine to go into action in quantity during the war. Its original charge was air combat, but the Fw-190 eventually became the Luftwaffe's standard tactical attack and close-support aircraft. The plane's superior handling and faster roll gate allowed even inexperienced pilots to enjoy success in the skies.
The Fw-190A8, nicknamed "Butcher Bird", was the last production version of the 190 series with a BMW-801 radial engine, and more "Butcher Birds" were built than any of the series. Wide stance retractable landing gear and flaps made it highly stable on the ground. Standard armament included two MG151 cannons in each wing and two MG131 cannons in the fuselage. A common addition was a WB 151 20mm gun pack mounted under each wing. Planes with this additional armament were redesignated Fw-190 A8/R1.
MRC/Academy's "Heinz Bar" is the latest addition to the Fw190 run. The fuselage measures 4.5" with a 6" wingspan. It's loaded with standard MG151 and M131 cannons and one 500 kg bomb. You'll notice the wide stance landing gear and wheel pants. The kit comes with two decal schemes true to the birds the German ace pilot flew himself. Also included is a Kubelwagen useful for dioramas.
