GreatWall Hobby Models is a Model Kit line from Lion Roar, the Chinese company dedicated to the manufacture of high quality multi-media model kits and detail sets. These kits include photo-etched parts, turned alloy parts and resin figures. All items are professionally designed and dedicated to meet the needs of modellers from all over the world.
This is the third 1/48 version of the WWII German Focke Wulf Fw189 that GreatWall Hobby has released. The first two being the Focke Wulf Fw189-A2 and the Focke Wulf Fw189-A1 Nacht Jager (Night Fighter).
The Focke Wulf Fw189A-1 with Sonderaktion Schneekufen (Special Operations Skis) was a special operations plane although what special operations they flew is a bit of a mystery at the moment. The kit appears to be based on the original Focke Wulf kit from GreatWall Hobby, although that has yet to be confirmed.
The major differences between the first two releases and this new release concern the under carriage, or lack thereof in the new release. Instead of the more normal wheels we now have skis for the main under carriage and a ski to replace the tail wheel. These additional parts look very well detailed and this Focke Wulf will certainly be an eye catcher and make an excellent addition to any collection.
