Actually there is a note though ... the side cooling vents behind the engine compartment may be incorrect if you want to replicate the Fw 190A-4. The kind you made was used for A-2 and A-3. Beginning the A-4, the Würger variants got the three vertical rectangular in the shape vents with the louvers. However it was changed during the production process and the very early A-4 had the panels with the early slots. So a pic of the particular kite would be useful. Also if it is going to be the A-4 the fuselage should be shortened just behind the exhaust pipes. Unfortunately the Revell model allows to assemble the A-5 and the later versions. With the A-5 the fuselage was lengthened 15cm there what resulted in adding of an extension behind the bottom and side edge of the engine cowling at the front of the wing root.
Below the A-4 ( on left ) and the A-5 ( on right ) front areas with the differences seen.

Once again Würger thank you, cause you are right. This filler cap must be located in the other sude if the fuselage, right?OK. No problemo. Always it is nice to see a Wurger getting shape.
BTW ... there is a couple of the kite pics more. Below the one of them.

Also if I may of course .... while the radio accessing hatch (A) is about to be correct , the filler cap for the MW-50/additional fuel tank (B) didn't appear until the A-7 and A-8 variants. So if it is going to be the A-4 the plug should be sanded down.

Würger:Yes you are right. The fuel intake and the filler cap were on the starboard side ...

However, please make a focus on that there wasn't a small hatch next to the filler cap for the A-4. Later the fuel intake was also repositioned and the hatch was added there. It was done with the A-7 version of the Fw 190 IIRC.

Hello Würger:I'm always. And you?
IIRC there were 20 D-11s assembled but could be them more. Mostly these were the prototypes or pre-production kites only. The first prototype Fw 190V55 W.Nr. 170923 had the standard armament of the D-9 aircraft. The next ones had the fuaselage MG131 MGs removed. Basicly the aramament were two 20mm MG151/20 E at the wing roots and two 30mm Mk108 outboard cannons or just the two MG151/20 only. The Mk108 cannons also could be substituted by a pair of 20 mm MG 151/20. The D-11 didn't have the cannon firing through the prop shaft. The kind of the armamant was used for the D-10, D-12 and D-13. Although the mass production was set up the D-11 never became the operational aircraft. For sure, one or two of them was flown by the JV 44 as the red "4" while the second one was marked as red "2" that earlier belonged to the VFS des G.d.j. The next D-11 W.Nr. 220009 and D-11 W.Nr. 220 017 (also identified as 220 012) were used by the Verbandfuhrerschule des G.d.j. in 1945. I think these of the flying school were used for the training missions only.
As memo serves the D-11 wasn't used for the ground attack missions but was designed for this only. Because of the D-12 advent the D-11 project was abbandoned. The planned Fw 190D-11/R20 and R21 remained a project
Well ... the answers ...
A) No and no.
B) Not used for the ground attack missions. Not used any kind of bombs or special equipment beside the guns and cannons. However the R4M rocket launching rails are mentioned.
C) Actually not used operationally. The exception can be the ones of the JV 44 and the ones of the VFS des G.d.J.. One of them was found after the war with rails for R4M rockets. Also the D-11s were used by the JG 300. There were two Fw 190 D-11 in the Stab JG 300 and a couple more in the II./JG 300.
BTW ... VFS des G.d.j = Verbandsfuhrerschule des Generales der Jagdfliger at Bad Wörishofen, Bavaria Germany.
Well this info was quite useful due that based on this info, guess that the winner is the 220012.My pleasure.
The additional info .... about fifteen Fw 190 D-11s were delivered to units by the end of March 1945.
Our member FalkeEins mentions at his site also the JGr 10 and JG 101 units.. the 2./JGr 10 D-11's were equipped with R4M rocket launching rails under the wings in place of the outer wing cannon.
And he listed the identified D-11s ...
