    I personally want to know what the marking are on the outside of them. I have seen some with numbers all over them that appear to be measurements.

    Yep, they are measurements, the main undercarriage 'door' actually two seperate pieces.
    Note not all doors had these markings, and aircraft operating in snowy winter conditions (Hungary for example) often had the lower/rear cover removed to avoid mud build up.

    Think I've got clear pics somewhere, get back to ya on that. In the meantime this is a great guide to how the undercarriage functioned: Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Main Landing Gear by Robert Stephenson and E. Brown Ryle III
