The Eduard 1/48 Fw 190A-5 (Yes, the A-FIVE, W.nr 7334, not the more commonly seen A-6) in Joseph "Sepp" Wurmheller's markings. The JG 2 Hahn (rooster) head emblem is speculative- I haven't found any photos of the front of the a/c. Not certain that the MG/FFs were in place but, since JG 2 was doing a lot of bomber busting in '43, I'm guessing that the extra firepower might have trumped maneuverability. Dunno about the wheels & tires either... more guess-work. All comments, criticism and information welcome. Thanks for looking!

I don't much care for 109's and 190's, but that's some really clean work!

and I'd bet a lot that the outboards were there, B-17's being the main quarry of the time, from 12 o'clock high. I thought only 90 or so -6's were built? NICE
