DRAGON MODELS USA

The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 W├╝rger ("shrike") was one of the Luftwaffe's best single-seat fighters of WWII. Such was its success that more than 20,000 were manufactured from 1941 through to the end of the war. There were a number of upgrades and variants introduced in its lifetime, one of which was the 190A-3. This particular fighter began rolling off the factory floors in the spring of 1942, and was equipped with a 1700hp BMW 801D-2 engine. This engine required higher-octane fuel, and upon its introduction, the Fw 190A-3 ruled the skies over the Eastern Front. Dragon Warbirds has unveiled a splendid model of an Fw 190A-3. It carries typical armaments plus a 300-liter drop tank under the fuselage. It represents "Black 7", the aircraft flown by the ace Oberleutenant Karl Borris. He was appointed Staffelkapitan of 8./JG 26 on 10 November 1941 and he finished WWII with a tally of 43 aerial victories in the West by the end of the war. The highly detailed model is produced to Dragon's exacting specifications and is finely painted and finished. It includes recessed panel lines and opening canopy, but the unique thing about this model is its diorama base. The 1/72 scale model is mounted on a compass platform, an apparatus designed to raise the tail of an aircraft to allow it to test its guns on the ground. The diorama base includes this special ramp and a realistic-looking landscape that is even littered with oil drums that make this a truly inspirational collectors' item!
