Superscale 48-749 for FW-190A Aces

Units: JG 2, JG 11

Superscale likes to do sheets in groups and here is the second 190 Aces sheet. One way that Superscale has greatly improved is the data stencil placement sheet. Not only is the location for  every stencil shown, but the stencils are numbered to ensure you don't miss any.

This particular sheet contains three more subjects.

First is the 190A-4 of Joseph Wurmheller from 9./JG 2. His aircraft  a yellow rudder with his impressive kill score on it. Like most 190A-4s, it is painted RLM 74/75/76 with fuselage mottling in 74.

Next is Kurt Buhlingen's FW-190A-8 when he was Kommodore of JG 2. This later 190 has the yellow rudder and undernose yellow patch as was common in 1944. Though in the usual 74/75/76 scheme, his plane has no mottling and carries the upper colors to the lower fuselage line in the forward 2/3rds of the airframe. This is an early A-8 without the blown canopy.

Finally an FW-190A-6  of III./JG 11's Anton Hackl. His RLM 74/75/76 aircraft has no mottling at all and has the tail section overpainted in white, though it does allow a bit of the swastika to show through. A yellow tail band adds some color to the aircraft.

As with the previous sheet, your only real choice of kits for these variants are from Dragon/DML. Again, backdating an A-8 or updating an A-4 will get you the A-6 variant.

Please note that the sheet may look a bit short as I'll often crop off common markings to save on server space.
