Hasegawa Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-5 of Oberfeldwebel August Lambert in 1/72 Scale

At the beginning of the Second World War, August Lambert was a Luftwaffe flight instructor.  His first combat assignment was with Schlachtgeschwader 1, a ground attack unit.  He flew his first mission on the Eastern Front on 23APR43 claiming a Soviet aircraft destroyed, but this was not confirmed.  During the Crimean Campaign II./SG 1 was hard pressed by the advancing Red Army and Air Force, and air-to-air encounters increased sharply.  Lambert scored steadily during the campaign.  On 17APR45 Lambert’s flight was jumped by American P-51 Mustangs of the 55th Fighter Group an he was killed.  His final tally was 116 aerial victories and over 100 vehicles destroyed.

The model depicts Lambert’s Fw 190A-5 assigned to 5./SG2, Southern Sector of the Soviet Union, late 1943.
