Retired Bob Posted February 6 Share Posted February 6 This aircraft was flown by Ofw. Josef Heinzeller, as an experienced, older pilot he was allowed to display the artwork of his dog 'Schnauzl' on both sides of the engine cowling of his aircraft. He had a smaller artwork of his German Schnauzer on his previous aircraft, a Bf 109F-4. He also had the inscription "Old Shap" in English beneath the cockpit of his Focke Wulf 190, Yellow 13. It was obviously his lucky number because he flew from the start of the war, served on both the Western and Eastern fronts and managed to survive with a final score of 35 kills, after the war he emigrated to the USA. The kit I'm using is the Eduard A-3 kit, It's not certain if this aircraft was an A-2 or an A-3 as they are externally identical, the difference is the engine, the A-2 had a BMW 801C-2 engine, the A-3 had a BMW 801D-2 engine. Here is the kit box art and the kit contents still bagged up. Here is the artwork for the paint scheme and decals. Ready to start on this straight away, as it's the same construction as my A-2 build it should be much quicker. Any comments or questions are, as always, most welcome. 11 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
