EaglePart #40-32 Fw 190D Cockpit
This resin set is designed to completely replace the plastic kit parts
of Hasegawa's 1/32 scale Fw 190D-9, kit number ST 19.
The parts included with this set represent a typical FW 190D-9 cockpit.
The master patterns were created from factory manuals, and detailed photos
of original, un-restored aircraft. The cockpit represented here is typical
of a standard FW 190D-9. While we would have liked to make this set a
"drop-in" replacement for the kit parts, the extensive nature of the
accurate details in this resin set necessitates some modification to the
kit fuselage parts. We feel that the end results are well worth the extra
Also note that there is extra detailing to be found behind the seat
area, which is difficult to see from the cockpit side. We detailed this
area in advance planning of a detail set that will enhance the radios and
other details later on.
Options and Features
This cockpit set features many details that have never before been
captured correctly in scale. We are happy to include scale canopy rails
that run the length of the cockpit sills, accurate positioning of the
pilot's back armor, correct portrayal of the oxygen system, and a seat
that is meticulously scaled from an original. We have included two styles
of rudder pedals. The style with the large oval cutout is typically
considered a "late" pedal. Both styles were seen on Fw 190D-9's, and have
been recorded mixed on the same aircraft. Our rudder pedals are
"pose-able", as is the stick.
Two different stick boots are provided so that the stick may be
installed in any position. The aircraft chronometer was usually placed in
the aircraft at the beginning of a flight period, and removed when the
aircraft was parked. The right side console features an empty mount for
the chronometer. We have provided a separate chronometer for you to
install if you like. There are two seats to choose from; one with cast-in
belts, and one without belts for you to detail yourself with the
photoetched buckles provided.
Fw 190D-9's could be easily configured as a JABO or fighter-bomber. The
lower instrument panel includes the standard rocket control switches. If
you wish to model a JABO, you will need to attach the optional bomb
control panel to the lower instrument panel.
The rear fuselage decking featured different access covers for the MW50
installation. We have provided two styles of covers. As an added bonus, we
have included the landing gear indicator rods. On the real aircraft, these
rods serve as a visual indicator to the pilot confirming that the landing
gear is down. Our indicator rods are FLAT like the original, and feature
engraved lines and arrows to simulate the markings on these parts.
This set is NOW AVAILABLE from Eagle Editions!
