Hobby Master 1/48 Air Power Series
FW 190A-4
6./JG 1, Woensdrecht, Holland, October 1942
Reich Air Ministry for submissions for a new modern fighter and Kurt Tank won the
competition with his radical use of an air-cooled radial engine that he dubbed the Fw-190

performance but 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.

Fw-190A-4 5533 Yellow 6 was assigned to Oberleutnant Wolfgang Leonhardt, 6./JG 1. He
scored his first victory, a Spitfire on June 19, 1942. Late in 1942 JG 1 became involved in
the Defense of the Reich. On October 31, 1942 Yellow 6 was slightly damaged during a
crash landing and was repaired. Leonhardt scored a second victory on December 6, 1942
and his third on December 13, 1942. On January 22, 1943 he scored 2 more victories but on
February 4, 1943 he was shot down by a B-17.
