Here is a sneak Preview of the next out model in the EZ snaps series from Pegasus Hobbies. This time it's the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-3 and as you san see, it is quite impressive for a snap tite model.

This is only a test shot pre production version so forgive the hideous color. The interior is pretty decent, the one-piece canopy is outstandingly clear, and the model itself has very nicely done scribing, with the option of undercarriage raised or lowered.

The complete model has only 23 pieces, 1 clear part, and decals for 1 version of the A-3. I did a search ind there are quite a few other aftermarket decals available from the decal makers. With a few minutes extra time you can also make this a A-4 variant. so go for it or just build it with the supplied decals which are very good and are for an with group markings, a yellow lower cowl and rudder.

 

 

The main colors are RLM 74,75, and 76. I will try to build this over the next several days to show you the finished product which i already know will be a good model at a great price!! 10 bucks US! You cant go wrong with these kits for the money and fun value.;
