    I think the Red number of the profile you sent is incorrect. It should be black "nine" of SG2. The kite can be found in a few books ( Kagero Fw190 vol.III for instance) The camo was done with RLM74/75/76 with white smudges on upper surfaces. As memo serves the main landing gesr doors on legs were dismounted partially like for the Black2 and Black5 planes.

    There shouldn't be any problem for converting the Eduard model into that. I don't remember but you might need to find or scratch build ETC racks because F-8 and F-9 were assault variants of A-8 and A-9 types.

    Good afternoon ( in Poland too ,Weinace )

    These references I have found via The Internet. It took a few seconds to find them.

    Generally the pic with Black2 is well known and can be found in many books about Fw190.So it is not easy to list them all.. The profile was in World's Aircraft or something like that . I don't remember exactly.

    But these two below I have found in Osprey Aviation Elite Units series vol.13 titled The Luftwaffe Schlachtgruppen. Believing in picture captions both Fw190 were F-9 variant with bulged cockpit conopies belonged to II./SG2.
