About my Plastic Model Kit.

The Douglas TBD Devastator was an American torpedo bomber of the United States Navy, ordered in 1934, it first flew in 1935 and entered service in 1937. At that point, it was the most advanced aircraft flying for the Navy and possibly for any navy in the world. However, the fast pace of aircraft development quickly caught up with it, and by the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor the TBD was already outdated.

Tamiya 61095  1:48 FOCKE WULF Fw190 A8/A8R2

Tamiya 61095  1:48 FOCKE WULF Fw190 A8/A8R2

The Fw190 is generally considered by historians as one of the best fighters of its generation

Highly detailed 1/48 scale assembly model kit of the Focke-Wulf Fw190, a World War II single-seat, single-engine fighter of the German Luftwaffe.

The Fw190 is generally considered by historians as one of the best fighters of its generation.

Often called the “Butcher-bird” by Allied pilots, the 190 was a fighter aircraft that inspired both fear and respect by those who encountered it in combat.

Originally developed by Kurt Tank to serve as backup for the highly successful Messerschmitt Bf109, the Focke-Wulf 190 quickly proved itself as a highly capable frontline fighter aircraft, and before long, thousands of Fw190s were fighting alongside Messerschmitt 109s over skies of Europe.

Over 20,000 Focke-Wulf 190 of all variants were produced by Germany in the Second World War, and some of the Luftwaffe’s most successful fighter aces in World War II flew the Fw190.

The A Series Fw190 was the original short-nose design, and the type was fitted with a variety of BMW radial engines and armed with four machine guns (two fuselage-mounted & two wing-root mounted) and two wing-mounted 20 mm cannons.

Some 6,000 ground attack variants of the Fw190 (the F and G models) were also produced and utilized with success by the Luftwaffe, a testament to the type’s versatility.

This 1/48 scale assembly kit by Tamiya depicts the A-8/R2 model Fw190, which were fitted with an improved BMW 801 D-2 or the 801Q radial engine, the C3-injection system, a new paddle-bladed wooden propeller, an improved bubble canopy design, and improved armament.

Features: High-quality assembly kit display model of the Focke-Wulf Fw190 A-8/R2.

Length: 219mm, Width: 190mm.

Two sets of gun fairing parts included to depict both early and late production A-8 variants. Armored canopy and armor panel stickers included to accurately depict the A-8/R2.

Two types of propellers included.

Includes 1 pilot figure and 5 types of accurate markings.

Model kit – Requires Construction & Painting

 Glue and Paints NOT supplied

Tamiya  No 61050  1/48 Scale Messerschmitt BF 109E E-3

Tamiya  No 61050 

1/48 Scale Messerschmitt BF 109E E-3

The Messerschmitt Bf109E was one of the best fighters of the early WW2 period, on a par with the British Spitfire.

About the Messerschmitt Bf109 E-3

Most Famous and Successful German Aircraft.

Without a doubt, the Messerschmitt Bf109 can be claimed as the most famous and successful German aircraft from the WW2.

1936.

It was the world’s most advanced fighter at the time of its debut in 1936, and remained as the standard fighter for the Luftwaffe throughout the conflict.

Designer Willi Messerschmitt.

Created by the brilliant designer Willi Messerschmitt, it had the smallest possible airframe built around the most powerful engine available.

It also boasted many of the then innovative features such as an all metal stressed skin construction, retractable main landing gear, automatic Handley-Page leading edge slats, etc.

Bf109.

The Bf109 saw first combat during the Spanish Civil War and fully demonstrated its exceptional maneuverability, inherited from its precedent Bf108 Taifun (Typhoon) multi-purpose sports plane.

Improvement.

The Bf109 underwent numerous improvement throughout its career, and mass production of the E variant started late in 1939.

Within one year, about 2,000 “E” aircraft were rolled out.

Its excellent performance greatly contributed in the active service of German pilots at the Western Front and during the “Battle of Britain”.

The E-3 version used an improved Daimler-Benz DB601Aa engine capable of 1,100 h.p. output. This engine had provision for mounting a 20mm MG FF cannon on the crankcase and firing through the propeller hub.

About the Vought F4U-1D Corsair w/ Moto-Tug

Tamiya Aircraft Kit 61085

Following the successful release of the 1/48 Messerschmitt Me262 A-2a w/ Kettenkraftrad, Tamiya is proud to present yet another aircraft/ground vehicle set: the 1/48 scale F4U-1D Corsair (Item 61061) with the all new 1/48 “Moto Tug.”

This kit is perfect for designing the ultimate U.S. Navy Scene Diorama. Aircraft Tug or “Moto-Tug” tractors, as they were nicknamed, and were manufactured by Ford.

The Ferguson Company modified these vehicles for ease of application in the U.S. Navy by lowering clearance, and reducing wheel diameter to make it more compact. A protective panel was also added. The double-tire version of this vehicle was the BNO-40, the single-tire version was the BNO-25. Tow bars from Moto Tugs would attach to the rear landing gear or main landing gear struts.

These vehicles were active in towing U.S. Naval planes to runways and hangers. The kit will feature all new parts for recreation of rockets on outer section of wing, perfect for displaying in wing-folded position.

In addition to the standing pilot figure of the previous kit, a pilot figure to be assembled leaning out of the cockpit (checking towing) will be included.
This kit reproduces the double-wheel version of the “Moto-Tug” with minimal parts for ease of assembly. Currently, decals for the replication of three different planes are planned to be included in this kit.

Driver figure as well as two types of tow bars (main landing gear strut type and rear landing gear strut type) for “Moto-Tug” will also be included.
