The W.A.R. FW-190 is a half-scale homebuilt replica of a Focke-Wulf Fw 190 fighter. In July 1973, War Aircraft Replicas International of Santa Paula, California began design of an approximately half-scale replica of the Fw 190, the first of a series of replicas of World War II aircraft using similar constructional techniques. The first prototype made its maiden flight on 21 August 1974.
Design and development
The aircraft structure is based on a wooden framework for the fuselage and wings, using polyurethane foam to build up the fuselage shape and wing aerofoil profile, with a fabric/epoxy covering. The aircraft is fitted with an electrically retractable tailwheel undercarriage to match the configuration of the original aircraft. The initial powerplant specified was a 1600 cc Volkswagen air-cooled engine of 70 hp (52 kW), driving a three-bladed fixed pitch propeller. Small Continental Motors, Inc. and Lycoming Engines of 100 to 120 hp (75 to 89 kW) have commonly been used.
The prototype aircraft was displayed at the Experimental Aircraft Association convention in 1974. Realistic details such as simulated fabric surfaces, and detailed smoke trails were noted, the aircraft drew a large amount of attention at the show.
At least 197 sets of plans had been sold by 1982, and plans remain on sale from War Aircraft Replicas, now based in Florida.
Some versions were built using 125 hp (93 kW) Lycoming O-235 and 123 hp (92 kW) HCI radial engines.

An experimental model of a high-altitude fighter, it has an engine that is unusual for the series and a turbo compressor in a special shroud underneath the fuselage. This classic Focke with an exclusive appearance can be the pride of your collection or just an excellent piston-engine fighter!
In tandem with the work on the Fw 190 B series, in 1942 an experimental fighter known as the Fw 190 C was created with a DB 603A engine and a turbo compressor placed underneath the fuselage. At the same time, the shape of the fighter’s cowl had to be noticeably altered, and the long pipes of the exhaust collector were placed along the sides of the fuselage up to the turbo compressor. Several experimental models of this modification were built for testing purposes, and the tests themselves went quite well, although there were some problems. First of all, the powertrain and turbo compressor had not been perfected yet, which led to some failures. Second, the huge shroud on the aircraft’s belly reduced its flight characteristics somewhat. It would have taken too much time and effort to eliminate these flaws, so the project was scrapped.
War Thunder Fw 190 A5 Vs A8
In our game, the Fw 190 C will appear in rank IV of the German air force. It’s a classic Focke with all of the pluses and minuses that go along with it: good speed at high altitudes, a very respectable rate of climb, a high flutter threshold, and excellent control during nose-dives, even at high speed. However, a turning engagement at a low altitude will almost always end badly for the Focke-Wulf – inexperienced pilots often get carried away pursuing the enemy and continue the dogfight at a low altitude, which gets them a trip to the hangar. The Fw 190 C’s armament is similar to earlier versions of the series: two 7.92mm machine guns and a pair of 20mm cannons that are always equipped with ammo belts of terrifying “Minengeschoss” high-explosive fragmentation shells for air combat. In addition, the Fw 190 C has a unique appearance: an elongated cowl, a four-blade propeller, long exhaust pipes along the sides, and a shroud with a large air intake vent. This special event fighter is a real gift for collectors and fans of German aircraft.
