5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Wurger, 23 Jan. 2015
The FW190 Wurger (Shrike or Butcher Bird) was designed by Kurt Tank during the 1930's and entered service with the Luftwaffe in late 1941. Powered by a radial BMW 801 engine it was concieved as a supplement to the Bf109 but soon proved itself to be a formidable fighter in its own right. It served in many other roles, as ground-attack and fighter-bomber and even as a "Wilde Sau" night-fighter and was flown by many of the Luftwaffe's aces, such as Heinz Bar, Otto Kittel, Ehrich Rudorffer and Walter Nowotny.

EasyModel manufacture a seemingly endless line of military models; not toys, but rather collector pieces. Take a look at their Platinum Collection Aircraft product line... a huge range of aircraft covering the obvious subjects (Spitfires, [[ASIN: Hurricanes]] and Messerschmitts) but also less obvious (the Hawker Tempest or the FW190) or even obscure aircraft (the He162 Salamander or the Lavochkin La7). Not only that, but each aircraft can be bought in one of several marking schemes - they do several versions of the FW190 - so there's a lot for you to collect, if you're wealthy (and obsessed) enough.

These 1/72 scale models are all ready assembled and painted in plastic and the quality is surprising. Obviously if you've the inclination and skill, a good Airfix FW190 will come out looking better... but not much. The propeller turns, the panel lines are engraved, the (striking) paint scheme is detailed and well executed and the shape is - as far as I can see - accurate. OK, so you're stuck with the undercarriage down and there's little cockpit detail but really those hardly qualify as legitimate complaints. This FW190 has several finely rendered aerials, and a belly tank with a nicely detailed cradle. My only complaint is the lack of the Hakenkreuz on the tail, but really that's par for the course these days.

Having already bought the Hawker Typhoon, I felt duty bound to pick up a nice Luftwaffe model to compliment it and this does exactly that.

I've added some photos to give a feel for the model and included a Tamiya 190 that I built a few years ago to show how nice this ready-made kit really is.
