Tamiya 1:48 Focke Wulf Fw190A-8/A-8 R2.
This plastic model kit of a Fw190A requires paint and glue to complete.
The sturdy and versatile Focke-Wulf Fw190A mounted a radial air-cooled BMW801 engine and received continual upgrades to engine output and combat strength after first entering service in 1941. Deployed in Spring 1944, the A-8 series was the most numerous Fw190A produced and was armed with four 20mm MG151/20E cannon and 13mm MG131 machine guns. It featured a firing alignment device, wireless radio and Morane antenna along with a methanol-water injector and tank for extra power. The A-8/R2 sub-variant was designed as a bomber interceptor and had two of its wing-mounted cannon replaced with the more powerful 30mm MK108 cannon. It also featured extra armour plating and 30mm armoured canopy glass.
