Hobby Master 1:48 Air Power Series HA7424
Focke-Wulf Fw 190A Diecast Model
Luftwaffe III./JG 2 Richthofen, Egon Mayer, Cherbourg-Theville, France, February 1943

1:48 Scale   Length   Width
Focke-Wulf Fw 190A   7.25"   8.5"

Egon Mayer recorded his first victory on June 13, 1940. Victories 60, 61 and 62 came on February 14, 1943 when he shot down three RAF Typhoons. Mayer rose through the ranks very quickly becoming Leutnant, Oberleutnant, Hauptmann and Gruppenkommandeur of III./ Jagdgeschwader 2 "Richthofen". Mayer was shot down and killed on March 2, 1944 but during his short career he flew 353 combat missions and achieved 102 aerial victories and was the first German pilot to score 100 victories solely over the Western Front.

Focke-Wulf Fw 190A

Designed by Kurt Tank, the Fw-190A was first flown on June 1st, 1939. This small, yet ferociously-powered aircraft was fast and maneuverable and packed a fierce armament package earning it the nickname "Butcher Bird". The wide landing gear, excellent visibility and high-altitude paddle-bladed propeller endeared it to pilots familiar with the shortcomings of its predecessor - the Messerschmitt Bf 109. Some of the Luftwaffe's most famous fighter aces flew the Fw 190. Many variants were produced during the war, with the most notable being the inline-engine equipped and longer-nosed 190D, known as the "Dora."

Hobby Master's 1:48 scale Fw 190 is a quality model, assembled with exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail. Among this model's features are a solid metal wing with simulated fabric-stretched control surfaces, a 12-bladed cooling fan that spins in unison with the propeller, cylinder head cooling fins that are visible inside the cowling, individual exhaust stacks, removable center mounted fuel tank and a sliding canopy that reveals pad printed dials and gauges inside the cockpit. Variants in this series include the early 190A, the upgraded 190A with armor plating, and the 190F attack variant with larger canopy and removable center-mounted bombs.
