This is another offering from J. Rutman Productions designed to
correct and improve the venerable 1/24 scale Airfix Focke-Wulf Fw 190A.
This item corrects another serious flaw in the Airfix old timer,
namely the wheel well area (okay, so by Revell's large scale standards
this a newcomer at a mere 22 years young but, hey, both manufacturers
have vintage kits which can still outshine modern contemporaries).
The contents are enough to make a grown man cry with joy. Crisp pale
cream resin with accurate detail and scope to add personal touches such
as cabling and hydraulic lines.
The images show the layout of parts and included is a new firewall /
mainspar section with separate ammunition containers for the MG131's
alongside the barrels and mountings for the inboard MG151's.
Talking to Jerry, he says he is onto the task of casting white metal
undercarriage legs to carry all of this new resin and to replace the
kit's dubious and 'toy like' plastic struts.
This large scale set is a godsend to the Wurger junkie.
The full range of J. Rutman's kits and accessories may be viewed and ordered from his new website at http://jrutman.playnet.com/
