sigh! Starting from the name and ending with the shape it's an insult to the real one! Another candidate for "name the plane" contest . Swept tailplane is the top.

I guess not many accurate details of the Fw 190 were available, in England in 1943? I agree this is one of those 'scale' model plans that seems quite disconnected from any actual details of the prototype subject.

I think I'm right in saying that by 1943 the only Fw 190 in British (allied?) hands was that of Oberleutnant Armin Faber who had landed by mistake at Pembrey in Wales in 1942. That machine was examined by intelligence officers and passed to RAF test pilots for trials - but the general public still had only a sketchy idea of what it looked like. In 1943 its precise specs were still a military secret in Germany and known only to some allied personnel. Hodgson's model has outline faults, but few people in England could have done better at the time. An historical curiosity - perhaps there should be a new class for 'bad attempts at a scale model'?

The other plan on Outerzone (by Hodgson) is an "Airacobra." At least it is specified as semi-scale.

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
