Description Extended Information
 
Dragon DRW50085 German Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-3 Fighter - Karl Borris, "Black 7", Staffelkapitan 8./Jagdgeschwader 26, Wevelghem, March 1942 (1:72 Scale) "Guns before butter. Guns will make us powerful; butter will only make us fat."
- Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering, Head of the German Luftwaffe

Nicknamed the "Butcher Bird," the Fw 190 was Germany's best air-to-ground fighter. Faster and more agile than the British Spitfire, it dominated the skies over Europe as a fighter and was the Luftwaffe's most important ground-attack aircraft. Controlled by the skilled hands of aces like Oberleutnant Otto Kittel, the FW-190 gained the reputation of being one of the greatest fighters of all time. This fighter-bomber and anti-tank aircraft was almost impossible to defeat until the introduction of the long-range P-51 Mustang.

This particular 1:72 scale replica of a Focke-Wulf Fw-190A-3 "Black 7", was flown by Oberleutnant Karl Borris, the Staffelkapitan of 8./JG 26, based at Wevelghem, March 1942. Sold Out!
