The Fw.190 is one of the most iconic aircraft of all time and along with the Messerschmitt Bf 109, was the backbone of the Luftwaffe fighter force during WW2.  Designed by Kurt Tank the Fw.190 entered service in 1941 and quickly proved itself superior to the RAF’s  Spitfire MK V in virtually every aspect.

The Fw.190 was upgraded throughout its service during WW2 and was liked by its pilots for its ruggedness and ability to land on the rough airstrips, which were often found on the Russian front. Not only was the Fw.190 used as a day fighter, but saw service as a night and ground attack fighter and towards the end of the war it was also utilized to carry the Mistel, a radio controlled Junkers Ju 88 packed with explosives which was often used to destroy bridges. All figures and accessories are shown for scale reference purposes only.

One of our most distinctive schemes for a Luftwaffe bird, Yellow 6 was assigned to Oberleutnant Wolfgang Leonhardt of 6./JG 1. An Ace who scored his first victory, an RAF Spitfire on June 19 1942. Late in 1942 JG 1 were assigned to the Defence of the Reich and on October 31, 1942 ‘Yellow 6’ was slightly damaged during a crash landing and repaired. Leonhardt scored a second victory on December 6, 1942 and his third on December 13, 1942. On January 22, 1943 he scored two more victories but on February 4, 1943 he was shot down whilst attacking a USAAF B-17.
