Eduard Focke Wulf Fw 190A-7 of Rolf Hermichen in 1/72 Scale

This is the Focke Wulf Fw 190A-7 of Hptm Rolf Hermichen Stab I./JG 11, Rothenburg Germany, 8 March 1944, built using the Eduard kit.

Rolf Hermichen survived the war, claiming 64 victories including 26 four engined bombers.  JG 11 experimented with RLM 76 overspray on the fuselage sides to make their aircraft less conspicuous in the air.  This aircraft is profiled in Claes Sundin’s More Luftwaffe Fighter Aircraft in Profile and Kagero’s Fw 190s over Europe Part 1, which also provided the decals.  The A-7 variant was less common than the A-8, the easiest way to recognize one is the pitot tube is located just outboard of the cannon on the starboard wing on the A-7 instead of the wingtip as on the A-8.

  1. ..it’s a neat scheme, superbly executed here as usual. One I must add to my collection. Is the Balkenkreuz/Hakenkreuz a decal over-painted? One of the recent Prien JfV volumes has a number of images of a line-up of JG 11 190s painted in similar fashion..

  2. What I really enjoy about your posts – and I don’t praise them enough – is that I see the thumbnails and think ‘Oh Nice, Inch High Guy has been to an airfield again.’
    Your pictures fool me every-time, and while I am not an airplane aficionado, it’s nice to be fooled into thinking that your models are the real deal.
