Fw 190A-8, JG2, Maj Kurt Bühligen, Creil, France, June 1944
Aviation Archive. If the colors applied to this model are anywhere near the colors on the real thing, this plane must have been nigh on to invisibe on the ground. No matter which non-flight photo you look at, some part of this model seems to disappear into the background.

Anyway, the model is pretty well made, and comes with a new pilot and new folded gear, which shows a wheel in each uncovered wheel well. This gives the inflight view a very three-dimensional look. One problem I've noticed with these later versions of the 190A is a warp in the starboard half of the long folded-gear insert. This must be a problem with the mold, because all the 190A's produced lately have the same warping.

One thing about Corgi 190A's, you can't own just one. Very chewy...
