If you have the Eduard Fw190 D-11 kit, this set will improve the final
appearance of you kit.
Most important is the inclusion of the correct type of propeller used on the D-11,
wich has a "swept back" tip.
This can be observed in the Dora Vol. 2 book by Jerry Crandall on pages
27, 33, 35, and 38. The best photos of this type of prop are actually those in colour of the
Ta152 H "FE 112" Green 4 taken in the US late in 1945.

Comparing kit spinner and kit part. The double lines on the kit part are more
caracteristic of some prototypes rather than the aircraft in service.

Also included is an assembly jig:

Set number: FUS 4814
Available from: Ultracast
This set is actually similar to the 4813 set for the Ta152 H, but without the radiator
used only on the Ta152H, and also the spinner backplate was created to fit the Eduard kit
without any modification to the kit.


Thank you for your interest,
