This next set from Exito Decals covers three FW-190 aircraft of different variants flown during 1943-45. There are good kits of all these subjects available in this scale.

First up is a FW-190A-5 from 9./JG 2 based in France during 1943. This aircraft is in the standard colors and has a yellow rudder and lower fuselage.

Next is a FW-190D-9 from an early production run. This plane was was 12./JG 54 during the spring of 1945. The blue fuselage band will need to be painted.

Finally, a FW-190A-8 from 4./JG 301. This is a 1945 build as you can see from the 'blown' canopy. In this case, the fuselage bands will also need to be painted by the modeler.

Decals are superbly printed by Cartograf. What makes this set truly unique is that each of the markings options' placement diagrams are really full size color posters suitable for framing. The front gives left and right while on the back are upper and underside images as well as notes and sometimes a photo or two of the aircraft in question. Paint references are with AK and Mr Hobby Color, but most brands make the shades used.

This is a great sheet of a really intriguing subject.
