34.5 feet for the short winged version), a new wooden paddle-bladed propeller and a supercharged Jumo 213E engine.
Another worthy addition to this elite club is the Focke Wulf Fw 190, a plane that evolved so far that its final incarnations are only barely recognizable as being related to its first!
When the FW 190 first flew in 1939, it was a short, radial powered fighter that didn’t seem to attract all that much positive feedback from the Luftwaffe high command.
Being labeled a ‘dangerous horsefly’, it seemed that the bigwigs were more enamoured of sleek, inline-engined fighters like the Bf 109.
This leads me to believe that it is one of the earlier pressings of this kit.
The fit of the fuselage halves is good, and the tailplanes fit on very well.
