Hobby Master 1/48 Air Power Series

FW 190A-4
"White 8", 1. Staffel/I. Gruppe, JG.54,  
Eastern Front, early 1943
In 1937 even though the Me-109 was a very capable fighter the Reichsluftfahrtministeriun
(RLM) or Reich Air Ministry was worried that future foreign designs might surpass its
performance so they called for submissions of designs. Kurt Tank won the competition with
his radical use of an air-cooled radial engine that he dubbed the Fw-190 Würger (Butcher
Bird). There were many skeptics who believed this new aircraft would surpass the
performance of the Me-109. However when the Fw-190 entered combat in the summer of
1941 it already was Germany’s premiere piston-powered WWII fighter. Over 20,000 of all
variants of the Fw-190 were built with 13,291 of these being of the 9 different “A” variants.


Walter “Nowi” Nowotny reported to JG 54 Grünherz (Green Hearts) in December 1940 as
part of their Erganzungsstaffel (replacement squadron). Two months later he was transferred
to 9./JG54 flying a Bf-109. On July 19, 1941 he scored his first two victories but was then
shot down himself. In October 1942 Nowotny was appointed Squadron Leader of 1./JG54. In
January 1943 JG54 began to re-equip with the much faster and more agile Focke-Wulf
Fw-190. Flying more than 442 missions Nowotny accumulated 258 victories of which 255
were over the Eastern Front.
