    Like Wayne while I'm not competing I would like to make the model for the gruppe build.Initially I wanted to start the thread later when all can be finished but FalkeEins' opinion forced me to do it earlier.

    I have decided use the same kit like Alex and Karl ( as memory serves).It is an Academy one.The firm offers the same kit as no.2213 and no.2120.The no.2213 is offered with Kubelwagen as Fw190A8 but the rest of the kit is the same like in the no.2120.Of course the difference are decal markings.The no.2120 is for A-6/A-8 version of Wurger.To be honest it is not true because the decal sheet is with markings for A-8 only.Here some pics.

    to be continued.....

    so W ~ will it be an A-6 or an A-8 ? Sturmstaffel 1 had very few A-8's on hand during their December 1943 through March 44 ramble in the skies

    what references are you using ? ... side note very few of the SturmFw' even had outboard Mk 108's as well ..........

    I guess "Sturmstaffel 1 The War Diary" by Eric Mombeek, Robert Forsyth and Eddie Creek is a no brainer.

    How about A-6 White 10 my friend? :D

    the resource mentioned has errors but it will do. Another friend and author I await his script to be published on the unit, and there will be surprises within. Gee I wonder why you mentioned Weiße 10 ???? just so you know it was flown by several pilots and inf act all the Sturm machines were in the oversized unit

    .. first flight of the A-8 variant in Siegfried Müller's log wasn't until April 44.

    Erik Mombeeck is just about to republish his Sturmstaffel book as part of his JG 4 history he has some new pictures

    THX guys.:) I'm going to make "White 1" of Mjr.Hans-Gunther von Kornatzki from January 1944 at Dortmund.Unless I can go for his later A-7.But the A-6 looks much more interesting.

    to continue....

    The basic set for each kit consists of three frames with fuselag,wings, wheels etc... and one frame with "glass".There are 64 parts totally. In no.2213 there are two additional frames with kubelwagen parts ( one is with transparent pieces.)

    I'm with the guys Wojtek, really looking forward to this! I'm only guessing, but I think perhaps the kit will be vastly improved by some Wurgermajic!!

    :oops: Many thanks gents. :)

    The next step of building is gathering of specification for a model.I used Kagero series for Fw190, some other books, some nice articles about Sturmjagers published in Militaria and Aero magazines, resized drawings of Kagero for A-6 and A-8, my own materials I've collected for ages ( drawings, pics, many diagrams and schemas).

    Wojtek, why did you choose the Academy one:rolleyes: ?
    It's the worst kit of the 3 most popular Fw 190 As reenditions in 1:72 scale, it don't even look like that plane...There are great Hasegawa 190As - which need a lot of detailing but has a great, Focke-Wulfish shape :) (Part's photo-etch and Tally Ho!'s wheel wells should be enough), Revell's 190 A-8 is also quite nice and cheap...if the problem is the gun cowling for A-6, I can help you with some resin...

    Next - the drawings. Kagero as always have some errors, for example uncorrect shape of access panel at the bottom of fuselage, the best drawings are made by Arthur Bentley. but those in Aerodetail 06 - Focke Wulf Fw 190 A-F are useful.
    I've added photos from HT Model Special No.916 Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A/F/G/S, drawings from Arthur Bentley's site and Fw 190 A-5/A-6 Flugzeug Handbuch.
