    Hello everyone!

    I have just bought off of e-bay Superscale Decals for 'Schlagflieger Aces'.

    It contains the markings for August Lambert's Fw190A-5 November 1943.

    My question is would this be a basic Fw190A-5 or one configured for ground attack i.e. an Fw190A-5/U17 i.e. an Fw190F-3?

    Thanks,

    Weinace:p

    Don't recognise the name of the pilot, and don't have the unit details, or location, so can't check. But as the decal sheet title suggests attack aircraft, I'd guess it would be a ground attack aircraft?
    maybe someone here who knows of the pilot can chip in ?

    AS memo serves the pilot flown FW-190A-5/U1 from November 1943 to May 1944.

    Thank you BOTH for your replies.

    This is a (too) easy conversion using the Eduard A-5.

    Regards,
