Eduard Focke Wulf Fw 190A-8/R8 of Willi Unger in 1/72 Scale

Focke Wulf Fw 190A-8/R8 of Unteroffizer Willi Unger, 12./JG 3, Barth Germany, 20 May 1944.  Built from the Eduard kit.

Fw 190A-8/R8 of Unteroffizer Willi Unger, 12./JG 3, Barth Germany, 20 May 1944.  Ungar achieved 24 victories, 21 of them heavy bombers.  He survived the war.  This aircraft is fitted with the unusual Krebs Gerät (crab device), a 21cm mortar which was designed to fire backwards as the fighter passed through an Allied bomber formation.  It was quickly withdrawn from service as being impractical to aim accurately.  Markings are from EagleCals #8.

  1. Hi Jeff – lovely model once again! Amazing to think that Unger (note spelling) was awarded the Ritterkreuz for 19 victories (US bombers) long after Hartmann had required 148 (Soviet fighters) for his …and he survived. I corresponded with him a long time ago..

  2. Thanks Neil, I have fixed the spelling. I am amazed at the number of extremely successful Experten who were transferred from the East and were almost immediately shot down in the West. Completely different environments and opponents.
