The problem with Rodeike's Focke-Wulf Jagdflugzeug - FW 190A, FW 190 "Dora", Ta 152H is that it's not in print in English. Schiffer is Rodeike's English language publisher.

I agree it's a little short on late A models. But for me, I'm glad it's heavy on the early models. There's already a lot on later A models in publication and compatively little on the earlier models.

One nice addition to this book absent from Hermann's "Ta-152" and "Dora" book are the lovely color plates. VERY nice.

skychimp, the only thing I have ever wanted to know since coming here is if the pic in your signature is really you. :O hehehehe

P/S after looking at your pic again, I bet your really good, I mean with the size of your eyes you can probably see the aircraft before anybody else. especially in low light conditions. S!

The thing that has seperated Skychimp from the rest of his simian ancestors is his opposable thumb, giving him the quantum leap forward necessary to pilot an aircraft.

A Skychimp post with a picture of a FW-190. What the &%$# is going on?

Thanks for the heads up, ordering it in the next day or so.

I just got Lowe's "FW-190, Production Line to Frontline" and I was a little disappointed. It has some nice photos and some interesting production information but nothing really new or ground-breaking. It has an interesting chapter on a couple of specific high-speed jabo raids into England, and some interesting facts on production costs and such but alot of information is well known and rehashed. It gives alot of information on places of production, werk numbers, etc., but not much technical information or information on the 190 in "frontline" service. There is some decent stuff on foreign operators and on armament but there simply is not enough detail. It's a decent book and for the price I guess I would recommend it, though I don't consider it a "must have."
