Alessandro is closing in on finishing the Fw190D-9 paint layout - about 95% done - so it's a good time to show off a bit.
Here's some unedited FSX shots, only some cropping done.
Note some things may change further down the road.
Great great job Alessandro, some lovely weathering and oil effects too !!
Love the spinner.
A work of art
Real interesting how they got that engine on her. You can see by the shapes and lines on the nose which have all been captured wonderfully.
SOLD!! Will buy the second it comes out.
Poetry in motion. The 'D' series was a beautiful design. You sure are doing justice to it. Well done.
"Somewhere out there is Page 6!"
"But Emilo you promised! It's postpone"
Time flies like an arrow
fruit flies like a banana
So looking forward to this
that looks the right mix of deadly and graceful
You take it easy.. and have a nice day
If you compare the Dora to the older designs you can see were construction groups have been replaced or added.
Becomes very obvious when viewing them side by side.
Here's the D-9 alongside the ancestor of them all, the A-1.
And here's some showing the D-9 with the last of the Anton's, the A-9.
OUTSTANDING!!, I was hoping htat you would do the Dora series. I will be waiting inline to get her as soon as they are released.
Although I like Anton a lot, D9 is always breathtaking-->WOW What a racer now!!And the TA's are still a step further
I will surely buy her!
It seems difficult to arrive at an accurate flight model since as far as I know there are no long-noses flying anymore. How do you do that?
Will we be able to remove the centreline pylon or is it part of the airframe?
like with the Anton you will be able to remove the pylon.
This time we'll make it more comfortable though by means of a payload manager like we used it with the Bf108.
As you may know we use the services of AvHistory for the aerodynamics.
Of course there are many pilot anekdotes around as well as wartime testing reports with loads of hard numbers, mostly old Rechlin test center reports which Avhistory of course does use,
but it all starts with the 3d model to predict flight behaviour based on established real world industry-wide used calculation models such as USAF DATCOM and Roscam.
There are not any surprises today below MACH so this method is the most accurate anyway rather than tweaking parameters by hand just to get a certain parameter to match a certain opinion.
Having said that, pilot and test reports serve to verify the outcome of the calculated predictions or to put them into perspective rather than taking them for granted as the holy grail.
Looking great Mathias! Need anymore beta tester's?
Very nice Mathias, great work by you and Alx! I feel sorry for Schnauffer though, he's still waiting for his 110G4,lol
Amazing! Keep fingers for next progress Mathias!

That is clear, Matthias, thank you.
Personally I particularly value the ‘feel’ of a plane. Of course performance should be more or less on the numbers, but I find it, for example, much more important that the angle of attack and the view out of the cockpit are correct during landings, and that if a plane has a tendency to bounce in reality, that it also bounces in the sim, than whether the landing speed is exactly right in terms of knots. Can you perhaps tell us a bit of the peculiarities of the Dora and Ta-152 that we will find in your new plane? I think many of us would be interested in that.
