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

Mark Deboeck, Eric Larger, Tomáš Poruba

The 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.

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

Mark Deboeck, Eric Larger, Tomáš Poruba

The 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.

Messerschmitt Bf 109K
camouflage & marking

Tomáš Poruba, Kees Mol

Detailed study into color system used on the last member of Bf 109 family is the first attempt to describe this item in systematic way. The text goes from general Bf 109 camouflage and marking principles, maps important changes in the middle of 1944 and evolves the most probable form of Bf 109K camouflage painting, all completed by quotations of important documents. A short chapter is dedicated to the influence of photo material at colors displays; a list of Bf 109Ks known is also included. The analytic style set up in this work is extended in project “Focke-Wulf Fw 190D, camouflage & markings”.
