Slavo Hazucha Excellent - and educational (for me at least...) I did not know 190´s had wooden propellers!

Alexander Perov Thanks for the comments .this work I have exhibited before .and put again by accident .just the computer updated and I tried to put like .and it turned out that the old review went up. Who is interested in my albums still a lot of work.
Michael Hickey Simply stunning. Slavo, the later Fw-190's had wooden props while the earlier ones had metal. Not sure when they changed I think it might have been when they extended the fuselage and started to make the "D" series and Ta-152's. Maybe someone else here knows more.

Alexander Perov Thanks to all .over the diorama yet thought. I guess it will. and the rotor blades, I think if your prototype FW-190 is wide, they're probably wooden.

Michael Hickey That's right you jolted my memory Alexander, the wide chord props are wooden. Thanks

Slavo Hazucha Thanks mates for all the info - I knew Germans used all kinds of hacks in late WWII due to different shortages, but not wooden propellers... Interesting really, since lack of most metals was not the biggest issue afaik, lots of factory-new planes & tanks just standing around without fuel in '44-45. Also that it is mounted on such a high-performance plane surprised me - always learning
