21st FW-190 "Black 2" Pilot

Post by MZ826 » Wed Jul 21, 2010 8:12 am

I am trying to do some research on the pilots of the planes in my collection. I do not have the box for this one anymore. Does somebody still have FW190 "Black 2" in the box or know the name of the pilot?

Thank you

Black 2 is actually Green 2.

The plane is profiled in Osprey's Aviation Elite Units 13: Luftwaffe Schlachtgruppen

By the way, the Target Fw-190 is seen in Luftwaffe Colors Volume 5 Section 2 Jagdwaffe: The War in the East 1944-1945 page 178. There is a black and white photo and color plate. From the caption it is photographed at Chrudim in Czechoslovakia and probably belonged to SG 77.

I wrote that post in 2008 as part of the following thread viewtopic.php?t=13006&highlight=

The 190 referred to in the Schlactgruppen book ("green 2" page 76 plate 35) also has a black chevron and is a different plane.

"Black 2" profiled in the Jagdwaffe book has the correct werk number on the tail as the 21st version. The only difference is 21st gave the spinner a white spiral and the color profile does not have that. Being that the color profiles are taken from BW photos in the book for comparison purposes, the photo in question though is taken from the left rear and the spinner is unseen. So 21st may have taken a few liberties there. As for pilot info, these were Target exclusives as far as I know and only packaged in their 4 star red box packaging and did not have a pilot info sticker on them. The book also does not list a specific pilot for this machine.

In the link to the thread above there is box art pics so you can see for yourself

Thanks everyone.
I took a look at that thread you mentioned. I did not get mine at Target, I actually found it at Walmart. It came in the usual green box not the red one that people had mentioned.
