Focke-Wulf 190 A-6 - Orel - Russian Front, Summer 1943

This is no recent build, but I could shoot her again under a beautiful summer sun a few weeks ago.

She is under the markings of the JG54, engaged during the gigantic battle of Kursk in July / August 1943.  The Fw 190 A-6 was the latest version at that moment, freshly received at front, direct from the factory.  But like most of the machines of the JG54, this plane has been repainted "on the field" in very original colours.

Then, the main challenge in weathering was to perform it "with a light touch", rather insisting on the omnipresent dust that covered everything than representing traces of time outrage...

Hope you'll enjoy...

Merci,

Olivier Barles
