Focke Wulf Fw-190D-9: Eduard Aviation
Focke Wulf Fw-190D-9: Weekend Edition: 1:48 scale
The Fw 190 D (nicknamed the Dora; or Long-Nose Dora, “Langnasen-Dora”) was intended to improve on the high-altitude performance of the A-series enough to make it useful against the American heavy bombers of the era. In the event, the D series was rarely used against the heavy-bomber raids, as the circumstances of the war in late 1944 meant that fighter-versus-fighter combat and ground attack missions took priority. A total of 1,805 D-9s were produced. Production started in August 1944.
With the D version the power plant was changed from the radial engine of earlier models to an in-line 12-cylinder inverted-Vee liquid-cooled engine. The Jumo 213A generated 1,750 PS (1,726 hp, 1,287 kW), and could produce 2,100 PS (2,071 hp, 1,545 kW) of emergency power with MW 50 injection, improving performance to 426 mph (686 km/h) at 21,650 ft (6,600 m). In order to fit the new engine in the Fw 190 fuselage while maintaining proper balance, both the nose and the tail of the aircraft were lengthened, adding nearly 1.52 m (4.99 ft) to the fuselage, bringing the overall length to 10.192 m (33.438 ft) versus the 9.10 m (29.9 ft) of the late war A-9 series. The lengthened tail required a straight-sided bay, 30 cm (12 in) long, spliced in forward of the rear angled joint and tail assembly of the fuselage. To further aid balance, the pilot’s oxygen bottles were moved aft and located in the new bay. This gave the rear fuselage a “stretched” appearance.
As it was used in the anti-fighter role, armament in the “D” was generally lighter compared to that of the earlier aircraft—usually the outer wing cannon were dropped so that the armament consisted of two 13 mm (.51 in) MG 131, with 400 rounds per gun, and two 20 mm MG 151/20E cannon with 250 rounds per gun; all four weapons were synchronized to fire through the propeller arc. The wings of the D-9 still had the electrical circuits and attachment points for the underwing WGr 21 rocket propelled mortar, although none appeared to have used these operationally. While inferior to the A-series in roll rate, the “D” was superior in turn rate, climb, dive and horizontal speed. The Dora still featured the same wing as the A-8, however, and was capable of carrying outer wing cannon as well, as demonstrated by the D-11 variant, with a three-stage supercharger and four wing cannon (two MG 151s and two MK 108s). The first Fw 190 D-9s started entering service in September 1944, with III./JG 54. It was quickly followed by other units including I./JG 26 which flew its last operations on the A-8s on 19 November 1944.

Focke Wulf Fw-190 A-5: Hasegawa
Focke Wulf Fw-190A-5: 1:72 scale
The Fw-190 was the backbone of the German Luftwaffe during WWII. It was a single-seat, radial engine aircraft. Like its stablemate the Messerschmitt Bf 109, the Fw 190 was employed as a Luftwaffe “workhorse” and proved suitable for a wide variety of roles, including air superiority, strike fighter, ground-attack and to a lesser degree a night fighter.

Focke Wulf Fw-190 A-3: Tamiya
Focke Wulf Fw-190 A-3: 1:48 scale
Development of the FW190 series began in the Autumn of 1937, under a contract issued by the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Air Ministry) for a single seat fighter to supplement the Messerschmitt Bf109. Two proposals were submitted by Kurt Tank, the technical director of the Focke-Wulf Flugzeugbau (aircraft factory). The proposal using the then new BMW 801 aircooled radial engine was chosen. This tough and powerful engine was placed in a robust airframe and provided superb handling, well balanced control, and brisk acceleration.
It entered service in 1941, flying alongside the Bf 109 and it soon took control of air superiority over the English Channel. Establishing itself as a mainstay fighter of the Luftwaffe, it outperformed the contemporary Spitfire Mk. V’s in almost every respect and maintained this advantage until the arrival of the Spitfire IX in July 1942. The FW 190 fighter underwent constant improvement throughout its life. The A-3 version used the improved BMW 801Dg engine that produced 1,700hp. Armament was increased from four to six guns, consisting of two rapid firing MG 151’s in the wing roots; two MG FF’s outboard of the landing gear and two fuselage mounted MG 17 machine guns.
Throughout WW2, many Luftwaffe squadrons allowed personal pilot markings and distinctive squadron insignia to be used, plus lower cowl, wing tip and rudder color additions to the original paint schemes.

Focke Wulf Fw-190 A-4: “JG1 Oesau”: Hasegawa
Focke Wulf Fw-190 A-4: “JG1 Oesau”: 1:48 scale
Detailed 1/48 scale model kit of the Focke-Wulf Fw190, a World War II single-seat, single-engine fighter of the German Luftwaffe. The Fw190 is generally considered by historians as one of the best fighters of its generation. Often called the “Butcher-bird” by Allied pilots, the 190 was a fighter aircraft that inspired both fear and respect by those who encountered it in combat. Originally developed by Kurt Tank to serve as backup for the highly successful Messerschmitt Bf109, the Focke-Wulf 190 quickly proved itself as a highly capable frontline fighter aircraft, and before long, thousands of Fw190s were fighting alongside Messerschmitt 109s over skies of Europe. Over 20,000 Focke-Wulf 190 of all variants were produced by Germany in the Second World War, and some of the Luftwaffe’s most successful fighter aces in World War II flew the Fw190. The A Series Fw190 was the original short-nose design, and the type was fitted with a variety of BMW radial engines and armed with four machine guns (two fuselage-mounted & two wing-root mounted) and two wing-mounted 20 mm cannons. The A-4 model Fw190 was equipped with the same engine (BMW 801 D-2 radial) and basic armament as the A-3, but with updated radio gear and under-wing bomb racks, which could be fitted with a variety of bombs, heavy cannons, and cameras for reconnaissance missions. This model kit features decal markings for Luftwaffe I./JG1 “OESAU” Maj. Hans Ehlers.

Focke Wulf Fw-190 D-9: Tamiya
Focke Wulf Fw-190 D-9: 1:48 scale
Following the successful entry of the Focke-Wulf Fw190A series of fighter aircraft over the English channel during the autumn of 1941, the German RLM requested high altitude version to complement the fighter fleet, and three projects were started. The Fw 190B used the B.M.W. 801 turbosupercharged radial engine and a pressurized cockpit, but very few of these were built.
The Fw190C was powered by a 1,750hp Daimler Benz DB603A in-line engine, of which three prototypes were built. The third high altitude project was based on the Focke Wulf Fw190A airframe and powered by a Junkers engine. The fuselage was lengthened to accommodate the V-12 cylinder, liquid cooled, 1,750hp Jumo 213 engine, and made its initial flight during the winter of 1941 – 42. Five further prototypes were produced, plus small batch of Fw-190 D-Os were completed from standard production Fw 190A-7 airframes. These pre-production aircraft were followed by the Fw190 D-2 through D-8 designations.
The Fw 190D-9 began production in June 1944, with early versions having the flat topped canopy, and from W. Nr. 210002 onwards having the Galland hood (blown canopy). It went into combat with the III/JG 54 “Grunherz” (Green Hearts) in September 1944, at Achmer, Germany, as top cover for the new Messerschmitt Me262 Jet fighters then entering service. This FW190D-9 1:48 scale model kit by Tamiya is a very affordable and authentic example of this iconic WWII German Luftwaffe single engine fighter.
