FirstLook

 

The Jagdwaffe series from Classic Publications has shown some interesting airplanes. The latest decal sheet from Cutting Edge is based on Volume 4, Section 1, "Holding the West." The Focke Wulfs depicted are mostly the fighter-bombers used in the nuisance raids against England. Largely forgotten in favor of the more famous fighters, the fighter-bombers were very colorful machines, incorporating a black wash over the paint schemes to help aid camouflage at night.

Cutting Edge's sheet gives you decals for five F w190s, ranging from the A-2 to the A-5 sub-variants. There are three fighter-bombers and two fighters. Besides the two aircraft with black wash, the aircraft that stands out to me is the A-4 from JG5 with the monkey nose art on the cowling. Large numbers and the funny monkey personal emblem will make for an interesting look.

If you are looking for something different in Focke Wulfs this is an easy way to get them. Most of these machines have not been available before in decal form.
