Fw 190 A-5 - The A-5 was developed after it was determined that the Fw 190 could easily carry more ordnance. The D-2 engine was moved forward another 15 cm (6 in) as had been tried out earlier on the service test A-3/U1 aircraft, moving the centre of gravity forward to allow more weight to be carried aft.
Fw 190 A-5/U2 - The A-5/U2 was designed as a night Jabo-Rei and featured anti-reflective fittings and exhaust flame dampers. A centre-line ETC 501 rack typically held a 250 kg (550 lb) bomb, and wing-mounted racks mounted 300 L drop tanks. A EK16 gun camera, as well as landing lights, were fitted to the wing leading edge. The U2 was armed with only two 20 mm MG 151 cannon.

Upon the release of the  new  Fw 190A-5 Eduard releases this complimentary Brassin set for the landing gear section .So this set is packaged in a blister pack with foam protecting the six parts inside. There are two brass landing gear legs and four resin gear .

Brass legs are perfectly casted in bronze and the covers in grey resin .Construction is simple enough. Remove the doors from the carrying blocks, sand slightly and add to the Brass strut. The brass strut itself doesn't really need any clean up other than the very top of the strut and then only slightly. The details of  the pieces is crisp with thin break lines along the legs and subtle rivets on the gear covers. Adding the gear is simple either with superglue or epoxy.

This new BRASSIN landing gear sets is not some brass copy of the kit parts but instead they deliver all the details of the real thing along with the toughness of the metal legs. There is not a single thing to be added on behalf of the modeler apart from painting and gluing and they will surely put to your model that extra detailed look. 
Highly recommended .
