The Soviet/Japanese war starts in 1940. Hitler decides Operation Barbarossa can be put on hold. The Battle of Britain goes much better for Germany and last longer. They do ultimately lose that in the end.
October 1914, the sniper’s bullet kills Montgomery and the North African campaign also goes better for Germany and lasts longer.
September 1942, Hans-Joachim Marseille’s Bf-109G loses power and he is forced to bail out but the tail misses him and he survives. And because war development and production advances more rapidly, the Fw190D-9 is introduced earlier seeing action in North Africa.
Marseille is one of the first to get the new Fw aircraft.
Pretty sure it's the Hasegawa kit. The larger added tail is a nice addition.
One of the neatest looking D-9's I ever saw was a white Russian one. Have always wanted to do that one. I can still remember the first time I saw the FW190D9 setting under the wing of a B17 in Dayton Ohio. Literally gave me chills. Then I saw the ME262 under the other wing. gary
Gary, When I as last there during the '15 Nats I was so bonerfied with the 190 I never I totally missed the 262.
seems like I hear they moved to a new area close to the b24. An interesting thing about that D9 is that the cockpit is totally unrestored. There are some sheet metal patches that are not correct under the nose. I have not seen it since they installed the correct wings. gary
