Full title: Combat Colours No.7 - An Illustrated Guide to the Colour Schemes and Markings of the Focke-Wulf Fw190 in World War Two, by Neil Robinson, illustrated by Peter Scott

Published by Guideline in 2011, 80 pages. A4 size booklet (N7912)


From the introduction: The Focke Wulf 190 was arguably the most outstanding Luftwaffe piston-engined fighter of World War Two, virtually dominating the skies over Europe for more than a year after its introduction into service in the summer of 1941. Continual development kept it operational throughout the war and the aircraft gained a grudging respect from Allied pilots. The Fw '190 performed practically every role possible for a single-engine, single-seat aircraft; fighter, fighter­ bomber, ground attack; reconnaissance, night-fighter and trainer. The colour schemes it wore were equally as varied, and although they were invariably finished on the factory production line in official standard camouflage schemes and markings, things got a lot more 'interesting' when they reached their intended operating units, as hopefully the following pages show.

The booklet is illustrated throughout with several black and white photographs, but over half the pages (58) are taken up with colour drawings showing individual profiles of aircraft with different colour schemes, designs and camouflage

The condition of the booklet is generally excellent. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs and creases but is clean and bright, the staple spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, unblemished, intact and tightly bound.
