This is the second subject sheet from Exito Decals and concentrates on the FW-190A, a rather popular subject with modelers and appropriate thanks to the recent releases from the Czech Republic. The set has a nice mixture of airframes in it, so you should be able to find one that appeals to you.

First up is an FW-190A-3 as flown by Oblt Detlev Rohwer from 6./JG1 in late spring of 1942. Standard RLM 74/75/76 camouflage and like most early 190s is lightly mottled.

Next is a 190A-4 from I./SG 101, a training outfit based in France during 1943. This aircraft retains the radio call codes as was often the case with training types. It also has large, white markings on the cowling and just below the cowling. Standard paint scheme and tactical markings.

Finally, an FW-190A-5 as flown by Fw Karl Willius of 3./JG 26 during a stint in Russia during April 1943. Typical of many 190s in this theater, it is painted in a non-standard camouflage scheme. Note that the yellow fuselage band goes under the fuselage insignia and theat the yellow rudder markings are quite small, covering only the lower portion.

Kits about for all of these variants an since none of the markings are kit specific, you can use them on any one that is appropriate. Decals are superbly printed by Cartograf and this sheet is also available in 1/72 scale.What makes this set truly unique is that each of the markings options' placement diagrams are really full size color prints 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.
