This accessory for 1/32 scale Fw 190A, F or G variants could not be much simpler. It represents the late-model wooden propeller blades, and is a direct replacement for kit parts.

Four parts are supplied in pale yellow resin. The spinner is cast with the cap, base plate and pitch collars as a single casting Only minor cleanup of this part will be required. The base of the propeller blades are simen ply glued to the outer face of the pitch collars. However, the lack of locating holes means that some reinforcement will be required for a solid join. I recommend drilling each mating surface and inserting wire or rod.

The profile of the parts looks very good. If you want to build Hasegawa's, Revell's or J. Rutman's Wurger as a late model, this will be a very useful accessory!

Recommended to moderately experienced modellers.

Thanks to Jerry Rutman for the review samples.
