Airfix 1/72 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8

By Walt Fink
Published: November 1, 2013

Airfix’s all-new Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8 plastic scale model kit has beautiful recessed panel lines, excellent detail, options for a posable rudder, open or closed canopy, and retracted or extended landing gear. Add-on parts indicate other variants of Germany’s frontline World War II fighter may also be forthcoming from Airfix. Two canopies are supplied, the “blown” one not used on this particular aircraft. A nice cockpit tub with raised details is provided, plus a separate seat, rudder pedals, stick, and decals for the instrument panel.
