1/48 Fw190A-8 / R8 - featuring Mr. Oscar Boesch's Aircraft ~ DX'06 Convention Special Item

This kit features the Fw190 of a VIP guest at DX'06.

About the Fw190:
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 was a single-seater, single-engine fighter aircraft of the Luftwaffe, and one of the best fighters of its generation. Used extensively during WW II from 1941 over 20,000 were manufactured including around 6,000 fighter-bomber models.

Designed around the radial air-cooled 18-cylinder BMW 139 engine, the Fw 190 was quite a different aircraft from the Me 109. It was ordered by the Reichsluftfahrtministerium in 1937 as an addition to the Me 109. Design work began around two different engines, the BMW 801 and the liquid-cooled DB 601, although common thinking supported the 'stream-lined' vee-engine design, Ernst Udet supported the radial engine. This was despite reliability problems with the early engines including a tendency to overheat, high cockpit temperatures (exceeding 55 °C) and the leakage of exhaust gas into the cockpit. The BMW 139 finally was canceled, and the Fw 190 employed the 14 cylinder BMW 801 instead.
