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.

Colour previously thought to be RLM83
from: maurice northcott
Hi All
Michael Ullmann has clarified that RLM83 is actually a blue.

Consequently as a modeller my brain is asking "Well what colour were the areas of Fw190D's that were previously identified by authors/commentators as RLM83?"

Most authors/commentators have been quiet on this matter.

RLM74 was specifically superseded by the later colours, so it is logical (to me) that it was not this colour that was used.

Please advise opinions.

Many thanks in advance,
maurice
