The later versions of the Focke-Wulf 190 A series, the A-7 and A-8, were some of the most heavily armed aircraft to fly in the Luftwaffe. To that end, Master provides you with some impressive looking armament in their 1/32 scale Fw 190 A7-A9 Armament Set & Pitot Tube package.

Packaged inside a ziplock bag, the set features instructions and a separate bag with each style of armament packed separately. The benefit of turned-metal barrels is that they are perfectly round with no sprue attachment or mold seam line to remove, and they have hollow ends. The barrels are also very robust, easily avoiding bends during handling, and I need all the help I can get with that problem.

The pitot tube is mounted in different positions on the A-7 and the A-8, and Master points this out in the instructions.

The inner guns have a protective blast tube and shield in the wheel well, which Master provides, through which you insert the tube for the MG-151. The outer MG-151s are the same quality, and Master helpfully points out the length of all the barrels for easy identification.

The cowl guns are the MG-131 type with their uniquely shaped flared ends. Two are included in the set, and they are perfectly formed and hollow.

This highly recommended set is another example of the perfection that Master products are known for. I’ve used Master products before, and every time they fit perfectly and look awesome. I will use them again and again without reservation.

Thanks to Master and IPMS/USA for the review copy.

Reviewer Bio

Floyd S. Werner Jr.

Building models since the age of 7, I’ve become known for my Bf-109s and helicopters. I currently run Werner’s Wings. I was previously the ‘star’ of the Master Class Model Building Video series. I’ve been published numerous times on various website, including Hyperscale and ARC. My work has been in FSM and Great Scale Modeling 2001, as well as, numerous other model magazines. I’m a published author with my Squadron/Signal Walkaround book on the Kiowa Warrior. My models have continuously won many regional and national awards. My unique model photography gives my models instant recognition for their historical perspective.

I’m a retired from the Army after 21 years of flying Cobras and Kiowa Warriors, including tours in Iraq, Bosnia, Korea, and Germany. I’m also a retired Flight Officer for the Baltimore City Police and flew their helicopters chasing bad guys. I’m currently flying Cobras and Hueys with the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation.

I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart, Yvonne, for 42 years. Our daughters have blessed us with six grandchildren. My passions continue to be his family, friends, helicopters, models and airplanes, especially the Bf-109 and my beloved AH-1 Cobra. My motto has always been - MODELING IS FUN!
