    A good way to justify buying aircraft kits is to explain to 'The Wife' themes.
    My theme is to be the Focke Wulf fw190 family and the way to expand on the theme is to 'pick' the aces. The top ace gets a 1/48th aircraft and second and third get a 1/72nd.. This gives a great variety of finishes and adds an bit of fun.
    My next theme is Fw190 Geschwader, a lot of help being given by Aircraft of WWII members!!!!!
    I would like to build 'planes of the following pilots but wonder if anyone can confirm my findings. I've read a 'lot of contention' re claims, especially for the Ta152, and before parting with my 'hard earned coin', thought I could be corrected if I've 'got it wrong'.
    Focke Wulf Fw190A aces Otto Kittel 287 victories
    Walter Nowotny 255 victories
    Kurt Bühlingen 112 victories
    Focke Wulf Fw190D aces Heinz Marquardt 23 victories in Fw190D
    Anton Hackl 20 victories in Fw190D
    Hans Dortenmann 18 victories in fw190D
    Focke Wulf Ta 152 aces Joseph Keil 8 victories in Ta152
    Walter Loos 4 victories in Ta152
    Willi Reschke 3victories in Ta152

    A lot of my research came from Aces of the Luftwaffe - Walter Nowotny

    Hello,

    Other informations here:
    Aces of the Luftwaffe - Otto Kittel
    Kurt Buhligen - Pilot Profile - Kurt Buhligen
    Aces of the Luftwaffe - Anton Hackl
    Aces of the Luftwaffe - Hans Dortenmann
    Aces of the Luftwaffe - Heinz Marquardt
    I think it's OK for Anton Hackl (III./JG11 => Fw 190A-5/6/7/8, II./JG26 => Fw 190A-8 and D-9, Stab./JG11 => ?) and Heinz Marquardt (13./JG51 => Fw 190D-9 "white 11" April and May 1945.
    2 well known Fw 190 for Kurt Buhligen: Fw 190A-4 "white 1" of 4./JG2 in Tunisia and Fw 190A-8 <<-+- from Stab./JG2 in June 1944.

    HTH, regards
    Steph

    What a really excellent build, especially the restrained 'chipping' at the wing roots.

    Thank you for further references, which will keep me busy for a time.

    Regards,

    Nowotny's claims are dubious in the extreme....

    Thanks for your information.
    It's a real 'pickle' who can believe ,which claim.
    I suppose the only logic one could try is they are all equally suspect so I can build the same 'planes for the same pilots BUT know the claims are inflated????????????????????????????????????????
