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.

Aichi M6A1 Seiran: Tamiya
Aichi M6A1 Seiran: 1:72 scale
Soon after the advent of aircraft and submarines during World War I, the combined operation of those two weapons were considered by many countries. However, it was only the Imperial Japanese Navy that would put it to military use. At the outbreak of the Pacific War, many large-sized submarines of the Imperial Japanese Navy were equipped with catapults and small observation-type aircraft designed to attack Allied controlled harbors and to bomb the U.S. mainland. Acknowledging the success of former attacks by the Imperial Japanese Navy, it decided to plan a surprise attack mission on the Panama canal by a special submarine borne aircraft in the beginning of 1942. The aircraft chosen for this was the Aichi M6A1 Seiran. Which was designed exclusively for this one exceptional mission. In May 1942 the Aichi Aircraft Company received specifications to develop and produce a special attack bomber. At first, the use of the then new Suisei bomber with some modifications was proposed, but the conversion was found impractical because of the difficulty to have interchangeability of the major subassemblies. On November 1943, the first prototype made its maiden flight. Undergoing several improvements, the Aichi Aircraft Company received an order for limited production from the Navy in May 1944. The engine was a 12-cylinder liquid-cooled Atsuta 32, which was based on the German Daimler-Benz DB603. A 12.7mm, type-2 flexible mounted machine gun was equipped at the rear, and torpedo or a 250kg/800kg bomb could be carried. The Seiran was to be carried by the I-400 class submarine in the hanger tube of 4.2m in diameter and 30.5m in length. The hanger tube was capable of holding three Seirans. They were stored on catapult launching cars with armament for quick ejection after surfacing. To cope with the space limitation, the Seiran was designed to conserve space by folding the wings. The wings were pivoted on the main spar where it joined the fuselage. By rotating the leading edge downward, the wing could lie back flat against the fuselage. The outer portions of each stabilizer and elevator hinged at 90cm from the fuselage centerline and folded downward. Vertical clearance was obtained by folding the tip of the fin to the right. 28 Seirans including a Nanzan, its ground-take-off-and-landing equivalent, were produced by 1945, and submersible carriers for them, the I-400 and I-401, were completed almost simultaneously. The target changed from the Panama canal to the U.S. Navy aircraft carriers harbored at Ulithi Atoll due to the change in military priorities. The 1st Submarine Flotilla including the I-400 and I-401 with three Seirans each departed Japan on 23 July 1945 for their first and last mission. On 15 August, the flagship I-401 monitored a radio message from headquarters, informing them of Japan’s surrender and the flotilla was ordered to return to the nearest port in Japan. Thus the chance to prove the Seiran’s worth was missed forever. This 1:72 scale model kit by Tamiya is an authentic example of this interesting late WWII Japanese aircraft.

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.

Messerschmitt Bf109E-4/7 tropical: Tamiya
Messerschmitt Bf109E-4/7 tropical: 1:48 scale
During the first half of the WWII, the Messerschmitt Bf109 E was the mainstay fighter of the Luftwaffe. The E-4 housed a 1,100 hp Daimler Benz DB 601Aa engine and was armed with two 7.9mm machine guns on the nose, as well as a 20mm cannon in each wing. Some aircraft also had bulletproof glass used to reinforce the front of the canopy. However, with a flight range of only a few hundred miles, the E-4 planes were just limited to barely fifteen minutes of combat over British skies. Thus, the bombers were not given sufficient support and they sustained heavy damage. One result of this was that the Luftwaffe strategy to bomb England into surrender ended in failure. To deal with this tactical drawback, the E-4 planes were equipped with an additional 300L fuel tank. The improved fighters, the E-7 variant, were deployed at the end of 1940. After the Battle of Britain, the E-4/7 aircraft were sent to the front lines of the North African theatre of operations. As the Bf109 F-type production advanced, the E-4/7 was retired from the front lines. Some veteran pilots continued to use the E-4/7 mainly for ground support duty until the summer of 1942. This 1:48 scale Messerschmitt Bf-109E-4/7 model kit by Tamiya is one of the best model kits of this iconic fighter that has been produced.

Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat: Tamiya
Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat: 1:48 scale
At the onset of the Pacific War in December 1941, the Japanese Navy A6M Zero fighter was the dominant aircraft successful against the allied air forces. The Zero’s attempt at total superiority was thwarted by numerous F4F Wildcat fighters flown from U.S. aircraft carriers.
Grumman Aviation produced the G-18, the prototype XF4F-2, which first flew in September 1937. Initial evaluation revealed several performance problems, which led the U.S. Navy to reject the G-18 in favor of the Brewster’s F2A “Buffalo”. The Navy asked Grumman to continue with the project, and resulted in the G-36, which flew in February 1939. The G-36 tests exceeded the performance of the F2A, resulting in the U.S. Navy approving the design and ordering it into production as the F4F-3 Wildcat. Two years following its deployment, during the critical stages of the Pacific War in 1942, the improved F4F-4 Wildcat was introduced. It had folding wings, and three 12.7mm machine guns in each wing, plus the more powerful 1,200 P & W R-1830-86 Twin Wasp engine, giving it a speed of 512km/h. Grumman became known as the “Ironworks” due to its strongly designed aircraft, which could absorb enormous punishment and still fly home.
Although the F4F was inferior in many respects to the Zero, a superb kill ratio was attained by Wildcat pilots by using its strong points against the Zero’s weak point of fragility and unseasoned pilots. This 1:48 scale model kit by Tamiya is an excellent rendition of the Grumman F4F-4 wildcat.
