Grey colored FW-190D12, accurate profile but unfortunatley I have no real information on
this plane. It is a D12 but will work just fine in either the D9 or D9_Late folder.
Thanks

Fw 190D V63 CS+IA, prototype for the D-12 series Winter 1944-45

History:
Even as production of the Fw 190D-9 was initiated, efforts were underway to improve the aircraft's high-altitude performance. The Fw 190D-12 was first planned for in the summer of 1944, to be equipped with the Jumo 213F engine, with improved high-altitude capabilities, and an armament of two 20mm cannon in the wing roots and one 30mm engine-mounted weapon, firing through the spinner boss. Three prototypes were planned, the V63, V64, and V65. The Fw 190 D-12 V63 appeared in October of 1944, and joined the Focke-Wulf test program. The D-12 proved to be a success, but a bombing raid on the Rheinmetall-Borsig factory, where the Mk 108 30mm cannon were produced, led to a shortage of these weapons, and it is highly unlikely any production aircraft appeared before the end of the war. The D-13 was a direct result of the D-12 program, with the 30mm 'moteur-cannon' being replaced by a 20mm weapon. After the war, this aircraft was captured intact, and there are several pictures of this machine with a G.I. posing in it. Its fate is unknown.

Colors:
I believe this Dora is in the typical late-war color scheme of dark green and medium gray upper surfaces, with light blue-gray undersurfaces. As a prototype, it had alterations made to the airframe, and was probably repainted in a haphazard fashion, giving it a 'patchwork' appearance.

Hey Matt, nice looking site. That's a great idea what you are doing, listing all the serial aircraft with photos you can find with available skins!
I did some digging around on the ubi il-2 paintscheme's forum and found my old thread, I remember it being a prototype plane and a forum member gave me some great info and a link, here is what he wrote:
' This was the Fw 190 D-12 Factory Prototype numbed V63 with the W.Nr. 350165 ONE SOURCE HAS THIS AS 350167
An excellent reference for this aircraft is in the : Eagle File #2: Yellow 10 The Story of the Ultra-Rare Fw 190D-13 by Jerry Crandall Illustrated by Thomas A. Tullis or see Paul Straney's site (he built a truely wonderful Fw 190D-9 for CFS2) for a good historical background at: http://www.virtualwings.org/dora/350165.htm
Mathew, I don't remember if I put a without markings version in with my FW skins, so if you want a version without the markings on the plane and don't have that in the download from Flying Legends, let me know I can send those.
Site looks good, Thanks!
Scott
