The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 is generally viewed as a far superior fighter than the much more famous Messerschmitt Bf 109 - and for good reason. This highly adaptable aircraft served in an enormous variety of roles, including fighter, night-fighter, fighter-bomber/ ground attack, reconnaissance and torpedo bomber throughout much of the Second World War. It initially appeared as an interim fighter designed to complement the Bf 109 and the first production model, the Fw 190A-1 was deployed on occupation duties in France in the summer of 1941, from where it could threaten the British Isles. The sheer number and variety of model kits of the Fw 190 makes this one of the most popular aircraft in various scales. This new book in the Model Aircraft Extra series from MA Publications brings you a guide to modelling some of the variants of this aircraft using some of the best model kits currently available, and some of the best model makers around. 13 build projects will be included, in a ‘how-to’ format, and herald the start of a fantastic modelling guide series from MA Publications, the new name in scale modelling.
