Tamiya Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-9 of Oberleutnant Klaus Faber in 1/72 Scale

Red 13 was piloted by Oberleutnant Klaus Faber from the airfield protection flight of JV 44, based at München-Rein in April of 1945.  Faber considered 13 to be his lucky number, he survived the war with two victories.  Red 13 got the Aeries engine & armament detail set, along with a whole lot of extra wiring.  This aircraft had partial striping on the underside, the stripes did not run the length of the fuselage.  The JaPo Fw 190D reference also shows partial striping on Red 4, Crandall shows it complete.  The fuselage inscription reads, “ ‘Rein MuB er’ und wenn wir beide Weinen!” Which means “In he goes even though both of us will cry!”
