three-dimensional treatment of latch fasteners; very simple preparation
One of the few ongoing problems with Hasegawa's 1/32 scale family of
Focke-Wulf Fw 190s is the shape of the gun cowl part. The kit part has a
definite case of the Dolly Partons - exaggerated "cleavage" between the
Editions has a new offering that will quickly and easily correct this
problem without the need for reduction surgery. Their 1/32 scale Fw 190A
Corrected Gun Cowl is a single resin part that will simply replace its
kit counterpart. The Eagle Editions cowl includes the small domes on top
of the main bumps, which are missing on the kit cowl.
I also prefer Eagle Editions' more three-dimensional treatment of the
latch fastener detail on the sides of the cowl.
The casting block should not present any problems. A few careful
minutes with a razor saw will release the part.
Eagle Editions' 1/32 scale Fw 190A Corrected Cowl will be suitable
for the Fw 190A-7, A-8 or A-9 variants. Check your references carefully
for the correct positioning of the latch fasteners, as the A-7 had the
rearmost fastener in the lower position (so you'll have to fill the
rearmost fastener rectangle if you are building an A-7).
This is a simple and quick correction that will improve the lines of
your big Hasegawa Wurger.
