  Corgi Aviation Archive Warbirds 1/72 scale WB99605: Focke-Wulf Fw 190A "White 8" of 1./JG 54 Grunherz, Luftwaffe, Walter Nowotny, Eastern Front, November 1942. Warbirds are non limited and come with fixed raised undercarriage (in flight) with a display stand. Box has a little shelf wear but model is superb.

Length 4.75 inches Wingspan 5.75 inches

On the 14th October 1943 Nowotny became the first Luftwaffe pilot to achieve two hundred and fifty kills and was subsequently honoured with the Diamonds to the Oak Leaves with Swords of his Knights Cross. He flew this Fw 190A whilst serving as Staffelkapitan of 1./JG54 in the winter of 1942-43. A well documented machine, in stark contrast to the majority of the anonymous and unidentifiable Fw 190s flown on the Eastern Front by all and sundry (there were few aircraft directly attached to specific pilots), this is the aircraft that Nowotny scored his Staffers three hundredth victory of the war. The toned down white fuselage cross was viewed as an unnecessary precaution on an otherwise white winter camouflaged A-4.

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."
