Product Description

LW028Focke-Wulf Fw190”

Professor Kurt Tank’s most famous design… the Focke-Wulf 190 caused shock and consternation when it first appeared in the skies over Northern France in 1941… Its speed, agility and powerful punch took the Allies completely by surprise.

For 12 whole months there was nothing either the British or the Americans (or the Russians) could successfully put up against it. A simple, straight forward design the “190” easily outclassed and outflew its opponents.

By 1944 however even the “190” was having problems with the hordes of new Allied fighters and the vast aerial armadas the British and the Americans were unleashing upon Germany.

Our K&C model is in the “personal” markings of one of the Third Reich’s top fighter “aces”Major Heinz Bär. This particular “190” has the typical late war two-tone camouflage and the red Defence of the Reich”, band on its fuselage.

On the tail can be seen Bär’s tally of “kills” on the white section, Bär himself can be seen in the cockpit underneath the sliding canopy. Underneath the aircraft’s belly is the special extra fuel, centre-line, drop-tank.

As an added bonus a full set of fuel drums and jerricans is included with the aircraft. Each complete aircraft and fuel drums comes in its own specially-designed presentation box.

 

About Heinz Bär

 

Bär joined the Luftwaffe in 1935, flew over 1,000 combat missions and shot down 220 British, American and Russian aircraft by the end of the war.

 

Tragically he was killed flying a light civilian airplane in 1957.
