Re: Dragon Fw190A9 2/JG1

Hi Brian lovely build of a old kit. i built it a long time ago and even then it was long in the tooth. i had the problems with it as well, however mine did not turn out as good as yours. looking forward to seeing some more work.

Hi Brian The White dash under the number 25 indicates this machine may have originally belonged to II/Jg 51 and the Red Griffin badge on the nose indicates that this a/c may have at a later date Kg(j)55. this aircraft was found in Pilsen in May/June 1945
