Focke-Wulf FW-190 Radio Controlled Gasoline Powered 55cc Giant Scale Almost-Ready-to-Fly Warbird Airplane

 

Brief History: The Fw 190 is widely regarded as Germany’s best fighter aircraft of World War II. Its appearance in the skies over France in early 1941 was a rude shock to the Allies, as it was clearly superior to any other plane. For nearly a year, until the debut of the Spitfire IX, the Fw 190 was the unmatched champion of the air war.

 

                                         

 

As the war progressed, the Fw 190 was developed into many variants as a pure fighter, a ground-attack fighter/bomber, and as a close-support aircraft. No fewer than 40 different versions were produced, with different combinations of engines, armament, wings, systems, and roles.

 

                                                                                                     

 

First flown on 1 June 1939, the Fw 190 served for the duration of the war, largely replacing several other aircraft types in the process, including the Junker Ju 87 Stuka dive bomber. Allied bombers dreaded the sight of these potent aircraft, as did the fighters who provided cover for them. Arguably, the Fw 190’s greatest impact on the Allied war effort was to spur ever-greater advances in technology and aircraft design to counter its threat.

(Shown with an optional 3-blade spinner [TOPA1882]).                                                                                                                                                  Plenty of extraordinary details can be found within the Focke-Wulf’s cockpit, including recessed gauges, a pilot’s seat and side panels.
