Staffelkapitan of 1./JG 54, Krasnogvardeisk, USSR, 1943; Walter Nowotny was arguably the most successful Fw 190 pilot of the war, claiming the vast percentage of his 258 kills with the Focke-Wulf fighter on the Eastern Front in 1942-44. The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger, was a single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft of Germany's Luftwaffe. Used extensively during the Second World War, over 20,000 were manufactured, including around 6,000 fighter-bomber models. Production ran from 1941 to the end of hostilities, during which time the aircraft was continually updated. Its later versions retained qualitative parity with Allied fighter aircraft, but Germany was not able to produce the aircraft in enough numbers to affect the outcome of the war.
Please note: This model features an intentionally rough looking paint scheme to simulate the coat of whitewash that was hastily applied over the original camouflage by ground crews at the front lines.

Focke-Wulf Fw 190A
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."
