62" Focke-Wulf Fw 190A
AcesHigh have set the bar for fantastic flying models that carry a super high level of detail. As part of the Extreme Flight family, we have combined the highest level of aircraft manufacture with new technology, and the results are fantastic. Months of research and effort to create a realistic result without the typical weight problems that go along with detail.
Taking our expertise in balsa aerobatic aircraft construction and applying it to warplanes has produced new standard in warbird flight performance. The FW is fast and stable as a warbird should be, but it also floats in for landing with a confidence-inspiring lightness and predictability. This is a new day for the mid-size warbird. If you can fly an aerobatic aircraft, you will immediately feel at home with the FW.
The FW includes pre-installed electric retracts which are light, strong and convenient. They have the correct scale extension angle for the perfect Focke-Wulf look. Ground handling is easy due to the wide track and large (scale) wheels.
In making the model look real, our objective was to recreate the full size plane as it was in operation. Those aircraft worked hard, and got very dirty in the process. The details on the scheme are as if the full scale aircraft was wheeled into a photo booth... there are no pin-stripe panel lines and dots for rivets, because panels arenÍt pin-stripes, and rivets were rivets.
This isnÍt the ñbrand newî looking warbird that is typically seenƒ congratulations on owning the first ARF that comes dirty out of the box! ñRed Tulipî
This colour scheme was the mount of Hermann Graf. Brightly painted rudder and cowlings are all the rage for pilots among the very best of all time. Serving on both the eastern and western front, Graf was the first ace to shoot down more than 200 adversaries; 212 victories and 830 combat missions. He was awarded the highest german military decoration at the time, the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds.
Research was challenging as Hermann flew more than one FW190, as well as a number of Bf109Ís. His technique was based around getting very close to his prey before firing. He got so close that he was often firing through debris. So while he was not shot down, he went through a number of aircraft. The recreation of the details on this scheme were from singling out this exact airplane, and recreating it as closely as possible including the actual reproduction of the seemingly random camouflage pattern.
