Working with original Fw 190 Dora manuals, measurements taken from real Dora aircraft and photos of un-restored Focke Wulf cockpits, this realistic, finely detailed cockpit is the most accurate Fw 190 cockpit ever offered to the modeler. This resin set is designed to completely replace the plastic kit parts of Hasegawa's 1/32 scale Fw 190 D-9, kit number ST 19. The parts included with this set represent a typical Fw 190 D-9 cockpit. The master patterns were created from factory manuals, and detailed photos of original, un-restored aircraft. The cockpit represented here is typical of a standard Fw 190 D-9. While Eagle Editions would have liked to make this set a "drop-in" replacement for the kit parts, the extensive nature of the ACCURATE details in this resin set necessitates some modification to the kit fuselage parts. They feel that the end results are well worth the extra work. Also note that there is extra detailing to be found behind the seat area, which is difficult to see from the cockpit side. This area has been detailed for future use such as radios, etc.

Features  include:

  • Detailed forward firewall

  • Accurate floor panels and hatches

  • Control rods and wiring

  • Consoles in the correct length, shape and taper

  • Separate bomb selection panel

  • Two different control column boots, one in a fixed ‘centered’ configuration and the other in a squashed configuration to allow posing the stick in any direction.

  • Detailed canopy rails that will show especially when the model is displayed with an open canopy

  • Accurate oxygen system

  • Pilot’s seat bulkhead and canopy rails with correct placement of armor plating

  • Accurate rear deck and armor plate

OPTIONS AND FEATURES: Included are two styles of rudder pedals. (PE 4 late and PE 5 early) The style with the large oval cutout is typically considered a "late" pedal. Both styles were seen on Fw 190 D-9s, and have been recorded mixed on the same aircraft. The rudder pedals are "poseable", as is the stick. Two different stick boots are provided so that the stick may be installed in any position. The aircraft chronometer was usually placed in the aircraft at the beginning of a flight period, and removed when the aircraft was parked. The right side console features an empty mount for the chronometer. Provided is a separate chronometer for you to install if you like. As an added bonus, we have included the landing gear indicator rods. On the real aircraft, these rods serve as a visual indicator to the pilot confirming that the landing gear is down. Our indicator rods are FLAT like the original, and feature engraved lines and arrows to simulate the markings on these parts.

Fw 190 D-9s could be easily configured as a JABO or fighter-bomber. The lower instrument panel includes the standard rocket control switches. If you wish to model a JABO, you will need to attach the optional bomb control panel to the lower instrument panel. The rear fuselage decking featured different access covers for the MW50 installation. Eagle Editions have provided two styles of covers.
