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

Cover previewThe 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.

Question related to W.Nr. 210909
from: Ralf M. Jung (RaFiGer)
Gentlemen,
thank you very much for this brilliant book about the Fw-190 D-Series.

On page 199 you've listed W.Nr. 210909 twice times. First as destroyed on 08.02.1945 assiged to 6./JG 301 and second damaged 10% on 10.02.1945 with Stab JG 6.

The reason why I'm asking:
Is it possible that the the second entry was the Fw-190 D that was flown by Gerhard Barkhorn?
Otherwise I have one information that the Plane was W.Nr. 210501 could that be possible, if that was the batch of 2105xx build?

Tahnk you for your time & while waiting on Part II
Best wishes from Pushkin, Spb-RF

Ralf, ich habe Ihre Frage in 12´o Clock High Discussion Forum gestellt, die Antwort von Eric Larger ist hier:


"Yes it is

It could be one of the machine flown by Barkhorm or another one .

Up to now we do not have the WerkNummer wore by Barkhorn's aircraft, which is for sure a Focke Wulf built aircraft.

But to be honnest we cannot say more , is is possible of course.

Eric"

Hallo Josef,

herzlichen Dank für die Weiterleitung :)

Dann nehme ich mal diese W.Nr. und bastele eine schöne Fw-190 D9 daraus :)

Ich freu mich wirklich sehr, dass nun Teil II verfügbar ist!

Schöne Grüsse aus Pushkin

Dear Mr. Jung,

we are working on an answer to you. I can say you now, we have original German document to the W.Nr. 210909 lost in JG 301 and I plan to add it to our final answer. Now, we are verifying the second source about a damage of "same" plane in Stab/JG 6.
I hope, we will verify them soon and we add here a final answer to your question.

Thank you very much for your patient.

Regards

Tomáš Poruba
