Rick, the Paine Field scenery is default part of the ORBX Pacific Northwest scenery. Although far from perfect, it is a rather nice representation (it doesn't have anything where the Historic Flight Foundation facilities are located, just the ramp and taxiways, but there is a hangar located at the location of the FHC hangar which does, generically, look quite the part). It does have an aerial photo scenery as the base of the airport.
And you are absolutely right about FHC's Fw 190A-5. It is the only original Fw 190 airframe flying in the world today (and extremely original at that, with something like 90%+ of the original internal structure, and even 85%+ original skins (which is just crazy, that that much remained preserved well enough to be used in the restoration)), and is powered by a BMW 801 engine, as per original. At this time, there are a couple of other original Fw 190 airframes which are also being restored to airworthy to be powered by BMW 801's - probably most noteworthy, the example known as "White 1", which was obtained by the Collings Foundation last year and remains on track to completion and flying (will likely be the next one to join the ranks of the FHC example). All of the other full-size Fw 190's you see flying today are Flugwerk replicas, and aren't really all that close to the originals, being largely 'based on' the original design, and not entirely copied from the original design - for instance, those who have tried have found that the Flugwerk parts/assemblies don't match up with original Focke-Wulf parts/assemblies, and thus cannot help in getting an original airframe completed.
