FirstLook


The Focke-Wulf Fw 190A series was fitted with three different styles of propeller blade. Eagle Editions has released propeller and spinner sets depicting all three variants.

The set being reviewed represents the final style of propeller - the broad-bladed wooden 9-12176A.

Four parts are supplied in grey resin - three propeller blades and a replacement spinner. The spinner offers two benefits. Firstly, it has been designed to fit the propeller blades, so no surgery to kit parts will be required. Secondly, it is a more accurate shape.

A fifth resin part is also included. This is a jig to simplify the task of drilling an accurately centred hole for the propeller shaft in the back of the spinner.

Eagle Parts' 1/32 scale prop and spinner set will be a very useful accessory for anyone building a late-version Wurger (or, for that matter, an early variant retrofitted with the wooden propeller).

Recommended.
