Focke-Wulf Fw 190
Unidentified early Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A in what appears to be the standard camouflage of 74/75/76. Underside of cowling appears to be yellow 04. The lack of the forward fuselage extension (introduced on the Fw 190 A-5), along with the presence of the panel line on the air intake duct on the side of the cowling (introduced on the Fw 190 A-1), narrows the possible subtype down to either an Fw 190 A-1, A-2, A-3, or A-4.
The temporary inscription on the propeller has unfortunately so far proven illegible, except for the number "82". (Fischer collection, additional information very kindly supplied by Steve Sheflin and Leon Venter, via luftwaffe-research-group.org)
