Hasegawa 1/32 FW-190A-5

For 1/32 scale fans. The referenced kit turned up on my local plastic emporium's shelves yesterday. Hasegawa has done what appears to be a pretty nice job. Decals are for the JagdGrupOst bird flown by Hermann Graf. Only two nit picks that I can see. One is that they have that big round tank hatch in the belly left over from the 190A-8. That will bear some research, as I seem to remember one reference saying that hatch was only on the A-8, and not on previous FW's. It would need to be filled in & sanded over. The other thing is that the landing gear legs are shown with the oleos fully extended as in flight. Will be some effort to shorten them for a proper ground sitter.
