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.

Fw 190A book?
from: MDriskill
Many, many thanks for this fantastic pair of books on the Fw 190D! The 190 has been my favorite aircraft since childhood, and these are simply the finest works of research for it I have ever seen.

Is it possible you will someday produce a similar work on the radial-engined Fw 190 variants?

Thank you very much for your words. We are glad, you like our work and we hope, we will not dissapoint you in our next product.
We haven´t think yet about a similar title about Fw 190A versions. It is a lot of study to make a title about camouflage and marking and the Fw 190A was produced nearly all war. So, a lot of work...
We will inform you about our next project on our web pages.

Warmest regards

Tomas, many thanks for your reply!

My main interest is in late-war Luftwaffe camouflage and markings. So only a small book on, perhaps, the Fw 190A-9 and F-9, would be very fine with me!

But I can say with great confidence: no matter what JaPo publishes, we will buy it here in Tennessee!

Hi
There is already a booklet by JaPo about late war ground attack Fw 190s. It was published long time ago but I guess it is still available here and there.
I have it among the rest of JaPo books dealing with WWII machines.
Cheers,
Misko
