Fw 190 A-5
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Wrger is a German World War II fighter plane designed in the late 30s, powered by a huge radial engine. In particular, the A-5 version differed from previous designs in the engine placement, offset forward to restore the position of the gravity center, and 723 units were built: fighters, night fighters, ground attack, etc.

And now, Eduard has just released it in 1/72 scale, for us to enjoy it from the helix to the tailplane :D

You'd better activate the alert mode because a few units will soon arrive to Aeronautiko warehouse, and we don't know how fast they'll fly ;)
