      Out of stock
  Corgi Aviation Archive Collector Series AA34313 is this superb looking model of Focke-Wulf Fw 190A of 1./JG 1, Luftwaffe based at Schiphol, Holland in June 1943 Limited Edition of only 1200 Pieces Worldwide

1:72 Scale Length 4.75" Width 5.75"

The distinctive checkerboard marking, synonymous with I./JG 1's Defense of the Reich Fw 190As, first appeared in the early summer of 1943. 1./JG 1 chose this scheme, with the checkers in black/white, while 2./JG had them applied in red/black and 3./JG n yellow/black. The Schachbrettmuster would only last a matter of months, however, as the markings resulted in confusion in the air when other Jagdwaffe fighters intercepted the Group after misidentifying its aircraft for similarly marked P-47 Thunderbolts of the USAAF's Eighth Air Force.

Designed by Kurt Tank, the Fw-190A was first flown on June 1st, 1939. This small, yet ferociously-powered aircraft was fast and maneuverable and packed a fierce armament package earning it the nickname "Butcher Bird". The wide landing gear, excellent visibility and high-altitude paddle-bladed propeller endeared it to pilots familiar with the shortcomings of its predecessor - the Messerschmitt Bf 109. Some of the Luftwaffe's most famous fighter aces flew the Fw 190. Many variants were produced during the war, with the most notable being the inline-engine equipped and longer-nosed 190D, known as the "Dora."
