Some minor conversion required for the Fw 190A-7
One of the challenges for Luftwaffe modellers is to find variation from
relentlessly grey mid-war fighter schemes. EagleCals latest decal releases rises
to this challenge.
Two Focke-Wulf Fw 190As are covered on these new releases. The sheet is
available in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scale. Each aircraft is finished in the

with a white-spiralled black spinner and yellow lower cowl.

the modeller may mix-and-match if he chooses.
Stencil data, national markings and spinner spirals are supplied in sufficient
quantity for both subjects.
Eagle Cals’ instructions are of a high standard, with large colour side-profiles
of each aircraft, a plan-view of the top surface camouflage scheme and stencil
