Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8/R11

Focke Wulf Fw 190 A-8/R11

 


Dragons 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8 is available online from Squadron.com

 

Introduction

 

Here is my 1/48 scale Dragon/Trimaster Focke Wulf 190 A-8/R-11 "White 9", flown by Ofw. GŁnther Migge, 1./NJGr 10, Werneuchen in early 1944.

The plane is equipped with the radar system FuG 218 Neptun J3, and was further modified with a pair of flame damper fins over the exhaust stacks and a landing light in the left wing.

 

 

The "Kognakpumpe" inscription under the wild boar's head is probably a reference to the nerve shredding effect of flying a single engine fighter at night.
