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.

Many thanks for your kind words .

Tomas did a very very nice work and all congratulations should be given to him . He transformed perfectly our (Marc and Me) pencil drawings into nice and detailled colour plates .

This book and the one to come are the result of a real team work , between authors and JaPo .

If you like the colour plates , you will like also the volume II .

One more time many thanks in the name of all of us .
