An excellent Fw-190A-8. Priller or Bär Experte Versions.
January 31, 2017
This Fw-190A-8 is a excellent kit by Dragon. The parts are very well molded and clean, everything has a high level of detail, especially for a 1/48 scale model. It comes with a ventral fuel tank, plus, there's an optional version with one bomb, and with two 30 mm MK 103 cannons mounted in underwing pods (very few of this version were produced). As usual for dragon kits, it also comes with two P.Etched sheets, mostly, the parts are for the cockpit area, and a pair are for the outside (antennas). Easy to assemble, everything fits perfect. Instructions are simple, shown in many steps. The decals are excellent, they bring 3 possible markings, the best choice is to make the Josef Pips Priller 190A-8, a German experte with more than a hundred victories, all against aircrafts of the western front, also, he became famous, for being one of the few German pilots that managed to made a strafing pass attack on the D-Day beaches. Another decal option is for another great german experte: Heinz Pritzl Bär. This kit is a must in a collection of great aces.
