Description Extended Information
 
Dragon DRW50080 German Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-9 Fighter - Gerhard Michalski, Geschwaderkommodore Jagdgeschwader 4, Oder Front, January 1945 (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.

First appearing in August 1944 as a result of a special Air Ministry requirement, the FW190D-9 was an attempt to produce a high-altitude fighter based heavily on an existing fighter, the FW190A-8. The nose was reshaped and lengthened to accommodate a new engine. The Fw 190D-9 proved to be a superb fighter.

This 1:72 scale fighter bearing black chevron and bars, was flown by Gerhard Michalski, Geschwaderkommodore of Jagdgeschwader 4, near the OderFront, during January 1945. Sold Out!
