Description Extended Information
 
Corgi AA34303 German Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-3 Fighter - Hauptmann Hans Hahn, III./Jagdgeschwader 2, Summer 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. Comes with a poseable display stand.

This particular 1:72 scale fighter was flown by Hauptmann Hans Hahn who was attached to Jagdgeschwader 2. Sold Out!

Wingspan: 6-inches

Historical Account: "Assi" - Hans 'Assi' Hahn was the tenth highest scoring Western Front Luftwaffe ace. One of his regular aircraft with III./JG 2 during the late Summer/ early Autumn of 1942 has on it the Kommandeur's 'Cockerel Head' emblem and the Gruppenstab's unusual style of tactical markings, white outlined in black, with the Gruppe vertical bar aft of the fuselage cross extended into a wrap around band. 'Assi' Hahn's 68 confirmed Western kills, including four 'heavies' made him one of the famous aces of the Channel Front. He later added 40 more Eastern Front victories when posted to the command of II./JG 54 before he crashed behind enemy lines.
