Eduard Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-6 of Günther Schack in 1/72 Scale

Focke Wulf Fw 190A-6 of Günther Schack, 8./JG 51, Orel-Slowitzki USSR, 15 July 1943

This is the Fw 190A-6 of Leutnant Günther Schack of 8./JG 51 as profiled by Claes Sundin in his book Luftwaffe Fighter Aircraft #3. Schack was on my list of missing Experten schemes for quite some time so I was very happy to find his aircraft illustrated in Sundin’s book.  Schack claimed 174 victories on the Russian front and was shot down 15 times himself.  He survived the war.  The camouflage is the standard 74 / 75 / 76 with a dense green overspray.

Eduard’s Fw 190A-8 Royal Class boxing provides everything you need to build A-6 and A-7 versions using the standard wing and unarmored fuselage parts.  Here is an A-6 “conversion” using the earlier upper cowling parts.  The pitot tube is moved from the wing tip to the middle of the wing.  The latches molded into the top of the cowling panels are filled, as is the circular panel line on the belly for the MW tank.  If the centerline rack is carried it should be moved back about 3mm.  Decals from the spares box.
