Focke-Wulf Fw 190F-8. ProfiPACK Edition, 1:48 Scale
82139 - Eduard
The Focke-Wulf FW190F-8 was a versatile fighter-bomber aircraft that saw extensive service with the Luftwaffe during the final battles of World War II.
Powered by the BMW 801D-2 radial engine which turned the VDM 9-12176A 3 bladed propeller, the F-8 had armor plates added to the fuselage and engine cowling for extra protection in the ground attack role. It was heavily armed with 2 cowling-mounted MG131 machine guns and a pair of MG151/20 cannons mounted at the wing roots.
The F-8 could carry an impressive array of ordinance on the ETC501 center line rack (300l drop tank, SC50 or SR250 bombs) and the 4 wing-mounted ETC50 racks (SC50 bombs). It could also be equipped with MG151/20, MK 103 or MK 108 guns in the mid-span gun bays.
The F-8 also sported some of Germany's most colourful, ad-hoc camouflage as the Luftwaffe retreated further into Germany during 1944-1945.
