An important inaccuracy in all 1/48th scale Fw 190
D-9 kits is the shape of the radiator cowling; the profile outline is
too flat. The correct cowl shape has a fuller, airfoil profile. Using
measurements and photos from original D-9 cowlings, Eagle Editions has
produced a correctly shaped radiator cowling in 1/48th scale.
To demonstrate, hold a completed 1/48th model to a
good photo of a real D-9 and the difference is obvious, and is
especially noticeable when the cowl flaps are closed. Eagle Editions resin
correction kit fixes this problem.
- Complete with radiator, cowling and closed cowl
flaps. Use kit open flaps if desired.
-Visible pins and joint cover plates, both top and
bottom. Note: on the real aircraft the cowling halves are held together
with small pins which are detailed on the corrected cowl.
- Correctly closed cowl flaps that taper at the rear.
NOTE: The EP#13-48 cowl
correction set will fit Trimaster molds, DML, Dragon, Italeri etc. and
