Hi Slegawsky
The wire Mesh layer is the very first layer named UV #1
the ware layers are in the Color layer and are named DIRT(with sub layers) and Bolts_Screws_Rivets(with sub layers)
Hope this helps
Cheers
Keith

Hello everyone!

Before starting to work on this skin I had to do a little research. I've found unusual illustrations of the Fw-190 in the russian-language segment of the Internet. They depicted Fw-190A-8 with non-standard marks looks as a white strip crossing the swastika on the fin. These are the illustrations:

Black 7:

Black 12:


I can't find author of this pictures yet but anyway i've found these marks interesting and decided to make a livery with a similar sign. But first I had to make sure that these illustrations were not an invention of the author. I will not describe the whole process of my searches... I can only say that it was long, and there was no easily accessible information in either the russian or the english segment of the Internet. There were only vague formulations about planes with similar signs flying in III./JG54 in 1945. Confirmation was found only in this thread on one forum: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/...ough-swastika/
I will quote a few quotes from there:




"The classic French Docavia book Le Focke-Wulf 190, in addition to the two shots of “Black 15” seen here, has the shot attached below, an A-8 “Black 17” with a near-identical long stripe."



"Sometimes it pays to look in a good old-fashioned book! The Docavia was published in 1981, thus well pre-dating Ebay. The idea that they were doctored for online sale doesn't seem to hold water, and this is a pretty poor way to obliterate the swastika too.

The “Black 15” shots also appear in volume 5, section 3 of Classic Publication’s Jagdwaffe series. They note that the marking was used in the “new” III./JG 54 (formed in early 1945 from ZG 76, soon after JG 54’s original III gruppe became IV./JG 26). Their speculations about the stripe include: a simple unit insignia; theater marking for the Oder river area; a formation-keeping device for poor visibility conditions."



"Black 7". "The image and profile are from FW-190 In Foreign Service, Captured Butcherbirds Vol. 2, by Kecay Publishing. Not a very good photo but the white stripe and black III./JG 54 markings match up to “Black 15” and “Black 17” above well enough. One of my favorite aviation historians likes to say, "Logical assumption is the opposite of research!” But since all three of these machines are from the same Staffel, the best assumption for now may be that the stripe was simply to help them find each other in the air."




"Here is another example from the aircraft graveyard at Flensburg in May 1945. Source is 'Jet & Prop Foto-Archiv Band 6 (1996) Spezial Ausgabe Mai 1945: Die Luftwaffe Kapituliert' VDM Heinz Nickel Zweibrucken . Images posted for the purposes of research. Note the caption to the picture (which I have carelessly cut in half on the photo!) stating the tail stripe marking was indicative of service in III/JG54.

Look at the FW190 with its tail towards us in the lower of the 2 pictures posted below, with an enlargement below that. The Fw190 appears to be coded 'Yellow 11' with a III Gruppe bar. So, another Staffel within III/JG54 compared with the pictures and profiles above."

"I have recently met (this monday) author/historian Jean Yves Lorant, and asked him about those white stripes, since one of the pictures showned here was published in the book he co-authored, Docavia's Fw -190, and he told me he had met one pilot from JG54 which had flown one of the Fw 190 with those stripes on the fin. He told him it was just a quick recognition marking, and there was of course some concern by a few people about oblitaring the swastika, but it was decided that this marking would be more visible on the fin. I sould meet Mr Lorant soon again, so I might be able to give more details, if needed."

...

"I have visited Mr Lorant a few days ago, and he was very pleased to discover this forum, and this interesting thread. he just emailed me another picture from the collection of the pilot he had met a long time ago, which he allowed me to share with you. Taken in March 1945, location is Müncheberg."



"Two more pictures of Black 7. Source: Luftwaffe Warbirds Photo Album Vol4 (1993) Tank Magazine Special Issue Delta Publishing Toyko Japan. Images posted for the purposes of research."




Well, now there are at least 9 photos that depicted 5 different planes: black 7, black 15, black 17, yellow 11 (?) and a plane with an unknown bort number but with a black wavy line of the III gruppe and a white stripe. All planes according to the sources and designations belonged to III./JG54 in 1945, which allows us to make a statement about the use in this unit of a white band crossing the swastika as an identification mark in 1945.

Hope you learned something new as I did

Este skin representa el FW190 F-8 con numeral 10 en rojo perteneciente al 2./SG 4 desplegado en Anzio (Italia) en 1944.
Según bibliografía consultada, la esvástica y las cruces de alas superiores y del fuselaje fueron tapadas/semiocultadas con pintura para que no resultaran tan visibles. El resultado fué que en la práctica la esvástica era apenas imperceptible, y las cruces quedaban disimuladas.

According to the bibliography consulted, the swastika and the crossings of the upper wings and the fuselage were covered / semi-concealed with paint so that they were not so visible. The result was that in practice the swastika was barely imperceptible, and the crosses were concealed.

That skin would be the mutt's nuts for some totally fictitious late 40's Hormuz scenarios I've been thinking about, Iran having requested for Turkish COIN assistance up North...
