Fresh from the in-box this morning is a release from the TAM Museum in Brazil which appears to have acquired a little piece of history in the form of a Focke-Wulf J44 Stieglitz. Although mostly manufactured in the German city of Bremen from 1933 onwards, but it was also produced under licence in Cordoba, Argentina and Rio de Janiero, Brazil and saw service in both nation’s air forces. This particular example is an Argentine-produced model dating from 1943. It required 20 months of restoration including it’s two-livery paint job: half with the Luftwaffe design and half in the colours of the Brazilian navy.
