1/72 72033 MPM Focke-Wulf FW-190 V-18 - (FW190V18)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
Limited issue kit. The FW-190 V18 was an attempt to improve FW-190 performance at high altitudes. The V18 had a pressured cabin, DB 603G engine with a Hirth 9-2281 turbo-supercharger and a four blade propeller. There was a new air intake below the cockpit and a larger vertical tail surface as well. The design flew very well, but the Hirth unit was too unreliable for service use and project was abandoned. Very finely molded with all recessed panel lines. Includes many photoetched details and film instruments. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions.
