Comparison shot of EP#41-32 and the Gun Cowling from the 1/32nd scale Hasegawa D-9 kit shown below, the EP#41-32 is on the left. Note the subtle accurate shape of the gun cowl bulges and the properly shaped MG 131 machine gun openings on the gun trough compared to the incorrect funnel shape from the kit, pictured on the right. Notice the panel line break between the two cowlings is much greater, as is found on the real aircraft.

One of Jerry's pet peeves is that the Fw 190 D-9 gun cowling and gun troughs for the MG 131 machine guns are incorrectly molded on all D-9 kits. All plastic kits have always depicted the bulges on the gun cover cowling itself way too bulbous. Probably one of the reasons is lack of available good documentation. The forward upper cowling that includes the gun troughs has also been incorrectly presented. These major flaws have been corrected in our new resin aftermarket kit which changes the whole personality of the 1/32nd Hasegawa Fw 190 D-9 kit. EP#41-32 also includes the small air scoop, with an open end for better realism already molded on the gun trough panel, so the modeler does not have to fuss with this very tiny kit part! There are two gun cowlings available, the early 5 piece and the later 3 piece (EagleParts #42-32). All of the proper bumps are molded onto the resin part and can be removed as required per particular aircraft.

These corrected gun cowlings are modeled after an original D-9 gun cowling and gun trough for accuracy.
