Focke Wulf 190 A8
The Fw-190 was a fighter plane designed by Kurt Tank by the request of the Luftwaffe. The Luftwaffe was looking for a new plane that would replace the Bf-109 in the fighter role, and at the same time, for a ground attack plane. The Fw-190 went through several prototype stages starting in 1938, at the time the Spitfire and Hurricane were starting their fighter careers with the British RAF. Its 12 cylinder radial engine meant it could operate at higher altitudes than the piston engine Spitfire and Hurricane, besides the fact that it was easier to repair in the field. The Fw-190 came as a surprise during the Battle of Britain to the British pilots, and many were overrun by the speed of it. Later upgrades to the Spitfire, in both engine performance and armament, put the RAF in combat again with the Luftwaffe. The Fw-190 or “Butcher bird” as it was called by the Allies, saw extensive use as a ground attack fighter-bomber in the eastern front, where its rockets could penetrate the thickest armor of any Russian tank. Nowadays only 16 (replica) Fw-190s are airworthy but there are more in air museums in England and France. The Fw-190 is considered one of Germany’s best engineering pieces and a fine made aircraft collected by many. I've always wanted to build a decent Fw190. This one has a camouflage based on JG26's. I couldn't before because I didn't have an acceptable cowling nor a good canopy. After seeing Ralph's methods, I tried making one out of bendy transparent plastic. Rear fuselage inspired by Mattias Martennson (sp?) but with some changes (SNOT 180 to allow cheese sloped under it. Please read <a href="http://www.aviation-history.com/focke-wulf/fw190.html" rel="nofollow">more</a> about the Fw190. Please wait for the MOCpage for more pictures. And sorry y'all, for not posting much lately. I've been filming for my movie :D And also, I'm only using MOCpages for image hosting now.

Quoting T. Young nice.. i like all the detail. the horizontal stabilizer is held on with one stud?(if that is not the correct term, forgive me) the only thing that would complete it is a lego canopy instead of a home built plastic one but there are limits to what lego can do without editing. but overall i like it a lot
Thanks, yeah, it's held by one stud. I'd like a LEGO canopy as well, but I didn't have to pieces to make it :/
