Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-4, "Black Double Chevron", Hauptmann Fritz Losigkeit, Gruppenkommandeur I./JG1, Arnhem/Deelen, Holland, Spring 1943
Aviation Archive. WWII - Europe & Africa. This is a 2003 "limited edition" of 3,700 copies! I don't know whether the hobby was more wide-spread back then, or Corgi had a surfeit of optimism. Now days, a run of 1,500 is considered perhaps a little much. Anyway and whatever, these models are currently hard to come by, so the years seem to have taken care of any oversupply.

The model is well done and fit and finish is very good. I only wish Corgi had produced more of these interesting camo schemes. They do have a new checkered cowl version coming out in 2010, and, come to think of it, that IS a long run for a diecast mold!
