Included in this kit: Corrected rudder, converted fin
tip, optional cooling louvers and optional armored head rest.
This set is designed to convert Tamiya's 1/48th Fw
190 A-3 to a Fw 190 A-4. Early Fw 190 A-4s were distinguishable from the
A-3 version only by the new fin tip modified to incorporate a post for
the antenna wire. Later Fw 190 A-4s were the first production versions
to incorporate adjustable louvers in the engine air outlet panel that
became a standard set-up for later variants, as well as enlarged head
armor for the pilot. Parts are included to convert the Tamiya kit to
either an early or late Fw 190 A-4, as well as a replacement rudder that
improves upon the kit rudder. Some early Fws were retrofitted with the
solid wheel installed on A-7 and later versions.
