EagleParts #13-48 – Fw 190 D-9 cowl for Tamiya or DML kits. This part will provide the proper shape for the cowling.
An important inaccuracy in all 1/48th scale Fw 190 D-9 kits is the shape of the radiator cowling; the profile outline is too flat. The correct cowl shape has a fuller, airfoil profile. Using measurements and photos from original D-9 cowlings, Eagle Editions has produced a correctly shaped radiator cowling in 1/48th scale. Can be used on the Tamiya or DML kits.
To demonstrate, hold a completed 1/48th model to a good photo of a real D-9 and the difference is obvious, and is especially noticeable when the cowl flaps are closed. Our resin correction kit fixes this problem.
-Complete with radiator, cowling and closed cowl flaps. Use kit open flaps if desired.
-Visible pins and joint cover plates, both top and bottom. Note: on the real aircraft the cowling halves are held together with small pins which are detailed on our corrected cowl.
– Correctly closed cowl flaps that taper at the rear.
