Focke-Wulf Fw 190D camouflage & markings, Part I

Cover previewThe Focke-Wulf Fw 190D was one of the most elegant and powerful birds of prey in the European skies at the end of WW II. Similar in conception to “Messerschmitt Bf 109K, camouflage & marking”, this new work provides a thorough insight in the aircraft’s camouflage and marking schemes.
Part I explains the common rules used for camouflaging and marking of the type, and describes in great detail the various colour patterns applied to the different Focke-Wulf built Fw 190D-9 and D-11 production batches.
The book is fully documented with extracts from original documents, black & white, and colour photographs, as well as colour schemes and colour profiles. It is completed with a comprehensive loss list of the entire Focke-Wulf production.
Highly recommended for all students of WW II aerial warfare, Fw 190 fans, and modellers.

I couldn't agree more!One of the best aircraft monographs about late war German types I have ever seen. The amount of original research is outstanding and the presentation is excellent - keep up your brilliant work! The obvious question is indeed: When can we hope to expect Part II (and possibly a Supplement/Part III as hinted in one review)?

Concerning part II

We are working on... :-)

I know this is not the answer you want to hear but , for the moment we cannot confirm when in 2006 it will be available .

Such a book takes time to elaborate and to finish , for achieving the level of quality and seriousness we want it to place. There are always questions coming up even in the latest moments .

Part III ?

We are concentrate on part II for the moment ...

Thanks for your poss

Outstanding work: thats my impression too!

Is there any chance to see a comparable work on the Bf 109 - or any of it´s versions? (I recall reading something about a forthcoming publication on the Bf 109 G-6 in your work on the Bf 109 G-10.)

Dear Mr.Zimmer,
thank you very much for you kind words. To your question about Bf 109. I can confirm (for JaPo) we are working on some project about Bf 109 topic and a special chapters about camouflage will be there too. The project is large (like all Messerschmitt Bf 109 history) and it will take us some time. We can confirm, it will not concentrate only to camouflage, but to history of the type too.
Till an issuing of the project try to look to our previous project about Messerschmitt Bf 109K camouflage and marking and studies about different Messerschmitts Bf 109G/K from "Luftwaffe over Czech territory 1945" serie. I hope, you will find interesting information there too.

Warmest regards

Tomáš Poruba
