FW190A Adolf Galland GDJ

Hello everybody


I am after infos on the FW190s that General Galland was flying while on duty as General der Jagdflieger in the RLM. I have read his book "Die Ersten und die Letzten" and in it he mentions that during this time he had an "Alarm Rotte" at an Airfield (Tempelhof?) and when the sirens were going off, rather often he and his adjudant would jump in a car to the airport to go for a hunt! His kill credits also listen two "unconfirmed" B-17 kills in 1944.

I have the pictures of his A-6 that he used durning 1943 for these inspection trip(s) (white 2 ) but I wonder if there are any sources that give us details about the 1944 bird(s)?
I have a Hasegawa A-6 in 1/48 under construction and I am also looking for decals for " white 2"...mine is the Sturmstaffel version.


thanks a lot
Uwe

Adolf Galland sure hates sitting at a desk and doing paperwork that's for sure. He had a small fighter unit of ten FW-190s. Adolf Galland likes to fly and being in a fight against Allied planes.

Hello Uwe,

Back home in Belgrade, I have a Hasegawa kit of A-6 with "<<<+2" that he flew and I am aware of three photos of this a/c all shot on the same occasion.

I don't remember seeing any later model associated to Galland
