Updating my older Focke-Wulfs
« on: September 02, 2021, 12:20:42 AM »
Some of my first 190's are looking long in the tooth, they'll be getting redone over time. This thread will serve to organize all of them.

First up:

Fw190A-5 flown by Walter Nowotny in the summer of 1943. Possibly the personal mount of another pilot in 1./Jg 54, but the reference photo clearly shows Nowi in the cockpit.

Very nice.   You’ve got the yellow down pat.

Thanks.

You can't tell from the pics, but there are 2 shades. The chin is more orange-ish than the other markings. This is documented in period color photos of other Jg 54 190's at this time. Granted, the shades I used are closer than shown in the pics. The pure yellow can't be matched very well in game.

Looking good Devil! Keep up the good work! <S>
There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!

Fw 190A-5 flown by Erich Rudorffer of 6./Jg 2 in Tunisia during the winter of 1942-43.

I wasn't happy with the light markings and the desert tan looked too much like caramel.
