New Tool Focke Wulf Fw 190a -4

Eduard’s latest venture into the Fw 190 series has gone back to the last of the original BMW 801 engined short fuselage A sub-types, the Fw 190A-4, and in doing so has sorted out the problems we average modellers had with some of the assembly sequences of their previous Fw 190A releases.

The main issue for many with Eduard’s previous series of Fw 190A kits, which comprehensively covered the slightly longer A-5 to A-8 sub-types (longer by 15cm/6 inches to move the centre of gravity forward to allow more weight to be carried) was that the nose cowling panels, designed to be fitted around a multi part detailed engine, were separate to the main fuselage, as were the wing root cannon access panels, making for a somewhat complicated construction requiring a degree of modelling skill that sadly not all of us possessed.

What’s in the Box?

In this release, Eduard have gone back to a more simplistic approach by moulding the fuselage halves with the side cowling panels in place, there just being the upper machine gun panel and underside tray that are separate, which eases construction considerably.
