Only skin action? Might be more nimble / slower with meatball camo... :)

FW-190 was never used by Japanese. Aircraft was imported for research and comparative purposes, which helped a lot in creation of the Ki-100:

I agree, that would be my first choice of skin instead of ones that were added.

No, there was no help in creating Ki-100,I'm sure the latter is simply a temporary measure when Japanese DB engine no longer available. 😼

There was no direct help, but studies of the FW-190 contributed to Ki-100 developement. Japanese were not so kin on the airframe itself (other than being a yardstick for their own project), but they studied closely engine mounting solutions. They also didn't had intention of simply making a copy of that piece, they just examined it and used as a reference to save their time on researching something, that was potentially already solved. Also, they did a lot of cross-referencing their own designs with other nations, and that practice was established well in the mid-war, so it was just fitting in their way of comparing their solutions.
