Thanks for the pictures John, a good reminder what a beautiful aircraft she is.

Reminds of an airshow I went to with my father 2 years ago. We were on motorcycles, had our tents built up at a campsite, and went out for the airfield. Due to some roads blocked, we were a little uncertain of the, driving through a forest, when suddenly it got very loud, and right at a clearing, there was a 190 blasting overhead at full throttle and about 100 feet or so. Just amazing! (Even if it was powered by a P&W engine...)

Nice nice shoots :D , but swastika :o.... Nazi symbols

I don't have this model, although I wish I did, it looks great. Awesome screenshots Bomber, as always. Inspiring!
I thought this video of a real FlugWerk replica on a test flight that I've seen recently is relevant. Not a BMW engine though. Not sure if this one has an ASh82 or P&W radial.
I believe Mathias has included the FlugWerk model in the package, right? If so which package is it? I like flying restored warbirds or replicas. It is more believable in a modern FSX world so I might consider it.
huub vink is right. The swastika as a symbol i mutch older than used by the nazis.
Finland used it on the first military aircraft on 1920´s The plane whas a gift from Count von Rosen with family used the blue colored swastika as a symbol at the castle "Rockelsta" in Sweden.
Latvia used also the swastika on ther airforce in early 1930´s but colored red.

John, very cool shots, thanks for sharing!
You should do our product images.
Dimus, negative on the Flugwerk Fw190, it's all pure vintage interiors in our butcher birds.
Though the period radios are adapted to work with today's VOR frequencies.
I would suggest to study the handbook before making a decision, particularly the part dealing with the radios:
Thanks Mathias, I'll have a look. Still enjoying your excellent Bf-108.
I love that video, Dimus! That particular example is powered by an Ash82 engine as you mention.
Here's some additional video, this being the only original Fw-190 currently flying (with upwards of 85% original internal structure and external skins), as well as being powered by an original BMW 801. A repaint of this aircraft by Huub, is available at Flightsim.com for the late-variants pack.
Great pics of my favorite plane!
If imitation is the greatest compliment, Leroy Grumman (an accomplished test pilot in his own right) flew a captured one in England and afterwards commented, "This is the airplane I wish we had built" and went on to initiate the fabulous F8F Bearcat, arguably the non pareil of piston fighters.
Good looking plane, and perhaps a slightly sinister aspect was interntional.
Yeah it is an excellent airplane, very nice on the controls. I am considering doing a Tejanahawk-esque paint scheme for it as well.
Hey Mathias, I don't know if you are done doing updates for the FW, but just curious if you were thinking of some kind of loadout manager like you did for the Taifun. Might be nice for the late variants with bomb/external tank...etc. I know you can do that via the regular FS palyoad manager but the Taifun loadout manager is very well done. I noticed the FW likes to be selected first on FS startup, so maybe some sort of 'cold start' reset button might be a good idea when switching from another airplane.
A minor minor thing I noticed was a bug you fixed in the Taifun...the pilot's appearing while shut off facing a headwind ...you were able to switch the coding to be based on groundspeed and that solved the problem.
