Butcher Bird!! The lethal nickname for the Focke Wulf FW-190A. This formidable fighter aircraft combined high manoeuvrability and heavy armament. Earning it many kills, and its lethal nickname. Fantastic 1/48 diecast model from Hobby Master. Flown by Lt. Hans Dortenmann, Jagdgeschwader 54, Grünherz (Green Heart) wing. JG 54 was the second highest scoring wing of all time. The FW 190 has been described as a formidable low and medium altitude fighter with exceptional flying characteristics. It could change from a turn in one direction to a turn in the opposite direction with incredible speed. The fighting qualities of the FW 190 have been compared to those of the Spitfire VB, Spitfire IX, Mustang IA, Lockheed P-38F, and 4-cannon Typhoon. Beautifully detailed die-cast model. Canopy slides open and prop rotates.
