DUAL COMBO!
Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-11/D-13

The fighter burden placed on the Fw 190A by the Luftwaffe was enormous. This very versatile aircraft found itself fulfilling fighter, fighter-bomber and ground support duties (Eduard Cat.No. 8171, 8173, 8174, 8175, 8179 in ProfiPACK boxings, 8429, 8430 asWeekend editions, and 1144 as a Limited Edition release). Thanks to a robust airframe, the type was able to carry a wide variety of ordinance, which vastly improved upon the multi-role capabilities of the Luftwaffes main fighter type, the Bf 109. Despite this, the design, which dated back to 1939, was finding its age showing towards the end of the war. The Fw 190Awas falling short of its adversaries, especially at higher altitudes. The design development led first through the Fw 190B, powered by a BMW 801 with a turbo supercharger, followed by the Fw 190C, powered by an in-line DB603, but was finalized on the Fw 190D. Conversion to the D version, and namely the Fw 190D-9, involved the installation of a new liquid cooled 12 cylinder Jumo 213A, rated at 1,726hp. The front of the aircraft was therefore lengthened from the Fw 190A, which was fitted with a BMW 801 radial. In order to maintain the centre of gravity, there was a 50 cm extension at the rear of the plane, and a relocation of some of the interior components. The overall length of the Fw 190D-9, compared to the A-9, was increased by 1.52m (just under five feet). The aircraft gained a new, more elegant shape, and was dubbed Langnasen Dora (Longnose Dora). Other important changes in the type were the addition of MW50 water methanol injection, temporarily boosting power output to 2,071hp (1,545 kW), and increasing maximum speed to 680km/h at 6600m (426mph at 21,650ft).Astandard feature on the D-9 was the bulged canopy, covering an armored head and back rest for the pilot. Despite this, the first series of the Fw 190D-9 were equipped with the older, canopy. The armament was composed of two 13mmMG131 machine guns mounted over the engine, and two MG 151/20 20mm cannon in the wing roots. The modifications through which the Fw 190D went through, were different enough to virtually consider it a new aircraft from theA, F and G. The first Fw 190D-9s were allocated to III./JG 54 in September, 1944. This was followed by I./JG 26 in November, and towards the end of the war there were 183 Doras in service.According to some sources, there over 1800 Fw 190Ds built. The D-9 (Eduard Cat.No. 8184) led to other versions, of which only the D-11 and D-13 saw practical use. The more widely used D-11 (by some sources, the Luftwaffe took delivery of 17 pieces) differed from the D-9 first and foremost in armament, missing the 13 mm machine guns, but adding two outboard wing mounted 30 mm cannon, and by the installation of the upgraded Jumo 213E, along with other improvements. The armament of the D-11 was similar to the Fw 190A-8/R-2, which is indicative of the planned use of the type against Allied formations of heavy bombers. Out of over a thousand ordered D-13s, only seventeen were built, and only a handful reached combat units. The armament installation of the D-13 composed of two 20mm cannon in the wing roots and one firing through the propeller hub. The D-13 also had mounted relatively modern avionics. Few Doras were equipped with a larger tail unit (Einheitsheck) standardized on theTa 152. Volumes could (and have) be written covering the problematic subject of service camouflage schemes, which is quite varied and influenced by time and place of manufacture and the deteriorating conditions in Germany. The schemes consisted of RLM colors 70 and 80, as well as areas that remained in natural metal or fabric. Variations are also indicated in the scheme options in this kit. The longnose Dora was built mainly to adapt the proven Fw 190A to combat operations at high altitudes, above 7,000m (ca 23,000ft), where allied bomber formations operated. Due to the development of events, these operational altitudes were rare. Even so, this was a fighter that could stand up to the best the Allies could field, and along with the Ta 152, represented the epitome of German piston-engined fighter design.

Fw 190D-13/R11, W.Nr. 836017, Flensburg Weiche, Germany, summer 1945

This Dora was captured by the Royal Air Force at Flensburg-Weiche airfield. The German national insignia was overpainted with a dark blue-grey colour by British personel with strangely positioned small white stars on the fuselage and wings. The inscription 'USA 14' was handpainted on the starboard side of the tail also. This aircraft took part in two mock dogfights with a Hawker Tempest Mk.V on July 25, 1945. The Dora was flown by German pilots Maj. Heinz Lange (former Kommodore of JG 51, Ritterkreuz holder, 70 victories) a Oblt. Gnther Josten (former Kommandeure of IV./JG 51, 178 victories). Based on this evaluation, both aircraft were considered to be nearly equal except for speed at height where the Dora was better. This Dora was handed over to the Americans and shipped overseas via Cherbourg, France, aboard the British aircraft carrier HMS Reaper to the U.S.A. It was restored and found its way to the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington. Unfortunately, the reconstruction of the camouflage scheme is not accurate.

Fw 190D-11, W.Nr.2200XX, Lt. Karl-Heinz Hofmann, Sachsenberg Schwarm of JV 44, Mnchen Riem, May 1945

The most famous unit which flew the Fw 190D is JV 44. Up to this time, five Focke-Wulf Fw 190Ds are known to have been used by JV 44, part of the so-called 'Sachsenberg Schwarm'. Fancy, red lower surfaces with white stripes were used as a recognition feature to prevent friendly AA fire. These Doras protected Me 262 Schwalbe jets from JV 44 during their most vulnerable phase of flight take-off and landing. 'Red 4', with the 'Der nchste Herr - diesselbe Dame' inscription is documented as being flown by Lt. Karl-Heinz Hofmann. The inscription can be translated as 'different man, same woman'. This Dora ended her life at Mnchen-Riem airfield. Nejslavnj jednotkou, kter pouvala Dory, je JV 44. Dodnes je znmo pt Focke-Wulf Fw 190D sloucch u tto jednotky v rmci tzv. Sachsenberg Schwarmu. Popularitu ji zajistily peste zbarven spodn plochy, kter upozorovaly vlastn protiletadlov dlostelce, e se jedn o vlastn letoun. Tyto Dory ochraovaly proudov Me 262 Schwalbe z JV 44 bhem vzletu a pistn, kdy byly ze strany spojeneckch stha nejzranitelnj. erven 4 s npisem Der nchste Herr - diesselbe Dame (v etin lehce frivoln dal pn, ta sam dma) je pipisovna Lt.

Fw 190D-11, W.Nr. 2200XX, VFS des G. d. J., Bad Wrishofen, March - April 1945 ERVEN 4

Based on the post-war pictures, it is clear that Fw 190D-11 'Red 4' from the famous 'Sachsenberg Schwarm' was previously used by Verbandsfhrerschule des G. d. J. under the designation '< 58' at Bad Wrishofen. This school unit offered specialized training for fighter unit leaders. As this unit was a pilot school, the white spinner spiral, typical for frontline fighters, was not present.

Fw 190D-13, W.Nr. 836016, V./EJG 2(?), Pilsen Bory, Czechoslovakia, May 1945

Only two Fw190D-13s are currently photographically documented. This one was found at Pilsen Bory airfield with the engine dismantled at the end of the war. The Black Stab marking on the fuselage shows that this particular aircraft was flown by the Gruppenkommandeure. The exact operator of this Dora is not known, and V./EKG 2 formed from I./EKG(J) is one of the possibilities. If this theory is correct, then this Dora was flown by Hptm. Walter Grasemann. Nevertheless, thanks to confusion during final days of the war, this aircraft could also have been flown by other units, such as JG 2 or JG 6. The series of at least fifteen Fw 190D-13s was manufactured by Weser Flugzeugbau in March and April, 1945. V souasn dob jsou fotograficky zdokumentovny pouze dv Dory D-13. Tato byla po vlce nalezena bez demontovanho motoru na letiti v plzeskch Borech. ern tbn oznaen na trupu napovd, e s letounem ltal velitel Gruppe. Jednotku, do kter patil, vak nelze s jistotou urit. Je mon, e se jednalo o V./EJG 2, kter vznikla z I./EKG(J) a stroj patil Hptm. Walteru Grasemannovi. Vzhledem ke zmatku na konci vlky vak me jt i o stroj z jinch tvar Luftwaffe.

Fw 190D-13/R11, W.Nr. 836017, Stab./JG 26, Flensburg - Weiche, Germany, May 1945

This aircraft had belonged to JG 26 and was captured by the RAF at Flensburg Weiche airfield on May 5, 1945. It is highly possible that this aircraft was flown by Major Franz Gtz, CO of JG 26 (Ritterkreuz holder, 63 victories). Yellow '10' is said to be Gtzs lucky number. The small Ace of Spades badge on both fuselage sides refers to his career in the role of III./JG 53 'Pik As' commanding officer. The small inscription on the lower part of the cowling is not accurately known the most often mentioned likelihood is 'Kontrolliert', seen on other German aircraft. The R11 designation indicates installation of the PKS 12 autopilot, and the letter 'R' stands for Rstsatz ('additional set' in German). The WFG factory camouflage scheme was darkened using RLM 82 and RLM 83 colours Tento stroj patil do JG 26 a 5. kvtna 1945 padl na letiti Flensburg-Weiche do rukou RAF.

Fw 190D-13/R11, W.Nr. 836017, Flensburg Weiche, Germany, summer 1945

This Dora was captured by the Royal Air Force at Flensburg-Weiche airfield. The German national insignia was overpainted with a dark blue-grey colour by British personel with strangely positioned small white stars on the fuselage and wings. The inscription 'USA 14' was handpainted on the starboard side of the tail also. This aircraft took part in two mock dogfights with a Hawker Tempest Mk.V on July 25, 1945. The Dora was flown by German pilots Maj. Heinz Lange (former Kommodore of JG 51, Ritterkreuz holder, 70 victories) a Oblt. Gnther Josten (former Kommandeure of IV./JG 51, 178 victories). Based on this evaluation, both aircraft were considered to be nearly equal except for speed at height where the Dora was better. This Dora was handed over to the Americans and shipped overseas via Cherbourg, France, aboard the British aircraft carrier HMS Reaper to the U.S.A. It was restored and found its way to the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington. Unfortunately, the reconstruction of the camouflage scheme is not accurate. Royal Air Force ukoistilo tento letoun ve Flensburgu a byli to prv Britov, kdo zamaloval nmeck vsostn znaky tmavou modro-edou barvou a nahradil je blmi hvzdami s ponkud podivnou orientac cp.
