Great model !

I would love to fly a Sturmbock in Il2, unfortunatly Oleg told us already that he has no time...

He casts his eyes to heaven's blue,
From where past heroes hold the view,
And swears pugnaciously the oath,
You Rhine and I stay German, both.

I'm not a know-it-all about the history of the Fw-190... Would somebody mind telling me in layman's terms what exactly a Sturmbock was?

Basicly, FW190s with added armor. The Sturmbocks were used against the formations of Bombers of the US. If I may use the metaphor, they were like hoplites in a phalanx - coming in slow, wing to wing, armored heavily, shooting from point blank range when they could "see the whites of the eyes" of the enemy. And if the attack was not succesful, the fighter was supposed to ram the attacked bomber.

O, how I want to hold you,
To feel your breath
And hear your laughter in my ears.
To look into your eyes
And see myself in there.
Caress you with my lips.
To hold your hands in mine
And find the hidden smile in your dimple
That makes you irresistible
And stops the breathing in my chest.
To be with you when you are weeping,
To wipe away the tears and take away the sorrow.
To watch you while you are sleeping
Like there is no tomorrow.

And with a tender kiss to wake you up.

Heavy armed (MK108 outer wing cannons) and heavy armored Fw190, that were designed to bring down four engined bombers.

They were organized in so called Sturmstaffeln and their pilots had to swear that they will bring down a bomber at all costs - even if that meant to ram.

The front of the Sturmbock was bulletproof, but due to the weight they fell easy prey to Allied escort fighters.
