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

Cover previewThe content of Part II follows the outline of Part I, with rules and detailed descriptions of colour patterns applied to Fw 190D-9s and D-13s built by the type’s licence manufacturers, i.e., the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Weserflug (Arb. Roland), Mimetall Erfurt and Fieseler Kassel. Separate chapters are dedicated to the influence of repair work on the final appearance of aircraft, and the comparison of different Doras in single units at a specific time.
There is also a “bonus” chapter of a slightly different form, dealing with the detailed analysis of the development of the Fw 190D with Daimler-Benz DB 603 engines, including the Fw 190D-14 and D-15.
The book is fully documented with extracts from original documents, black & white, and colour photographs, as well as numerous colour schemes and colour profiles. It is completed with a comprehensive loss list of the entire Arbeitsgemeinschaft Weserflug, Mimetall Erfurt and Fieseler Kassel production.
Highly recommended for all students of WW II aerial warfare, Fw 190 fans, and modellers.

Hi Mike,

Thank you very much for your interest in our D-9 book. As we speak, the first batches of Vol. II are being shipped to JaPo's distributors, so the book should become available within a matter of days. It will definitely be on sale at the UK IPMS National Convention at Telford, 10-11 November 2007, where Tomas, Eric and I will be signing books at the Aviation Bookshop stand. We are looking forward to meeting any fellow enthusiast / researcher for some interesting discussions.

Please drop us a line at this Board with your impressions on Vol. II - your comments, suggestions and ideas for further improvement are most welcome.

All the best,

Marc

Hi Mike,

All the information on Vol. III is in the back of Vol. II.
It will deal with the industrial sub-manufacturing processes (since those can lead to further, and even more detailed identification of single aircraft); any new D-9s that we may have identified in the meantime; updating of Vols. I and II if we have substantial new material of the aircrraft that were described there; a highly detailed description (with colour chart) of late-war Luftwaffe paints that were discovered earlier this year in the Czech Republic, etc.

If we find new material on the D-15, it will of course be added too. As regards the Ta 152-series, we would definitely want to give it the same treatment as the D-9, but it will not be in Vol. III as we want to keep both series separated.

All the best,

Marc
