I was wondering the cost of the fw190 and also the bf109. can anyone help??
They weren't paying an hourly rate for labour in many cases.When you see photos of the interior of German planes, you see the Germans didnt cut corners even late in the war. The harness are neatly dressed, layout is well thought out. So I don't think the man hours to build the 190 or 109 were trivial compared to other planes. Compare these photos of the Zero and 109 cockpits.View attachment 508061 View attachment 508062

Ok then do you know the man hours? (to anyone)
I would expect the Me109 to be high in man-hours due to the manufacturing processes used, though not as high as the Spitfire by a long shot.
I would expect the Fw190 to be comparable to American designs in man-hours due to the use of many pressed and stamped components.
