Hasegawa / Montex 1/32 scale
Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Aa-3

Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Aa-3


Description

 

This is my 1/32 Hasegawa –Montex Fw 190Aa3 finished in the markings of the Turkish Air Force.

The Fw 190Aa3 was the export version of Fw 190 A-3 and did not have wing root guns.

 

 

Turkey received 72 Fw 190Aa3 and the first flight was made on July 1943.  They remained in service until the end of 1947.

We can say that Turkey is the only country that used Fw 190Aa3 and Spitfire Mk.V together in the same squadron.

The Turkish Aa3 armament was two units 20mm cannons and two units 7.9nmm MG17.

 

 

Also there was no FuG 25 IFF device in the radio equipment.

Enormous efforts were devoted in order to keep these aircrafts operational. Some 190s were painted in RAF colours due to stock availability during their service period. And this aircraft had a tail from another one in RAF colors. And also note that the cowling colors are different, probably from another 190 with different colors like RLM 71/02/65.

 

 

The base kit is Hasegawa’s 1/32 Fw 190 A5. I have used the Montex Fw 190 A-3 conversion set for backdating.

I also used the AML resin seat and Quickboost exhaust set.
