This new decal sheet from Cutting Edge Modelworks includes markings for 3 different Fw-190A's. 

The first aircraft is a Fw-190 A-7 flown by Major Heinz Bar with II./JG 1, Rheine, in March 1944.  The paint scheme is overall light blue RLM 76 on the fuselage sides and bottom.  There is a red theatre band on the rear fuselage and a red #13 on the side of the fuselage.  The top rear of the fuselage is grey RLM 75 as well as the forward top of the engine cowling and the topside area around the canopy is green RLM 74.  There is also a yellow RLM 04 panel under the engine (although there is a chance this panel could be red) and a white spiral on the prop spinner.  Artwork on the side of the engine cowling includes red hawk on a black and white background.  The rudder is white and has markings for 200 kills.

The instructions are clear and include colour drawings to assist in decal placement.  There is a page of text including information about one of the aircraft and 3 view line drawings showing stencil placement.  Stencils are included on the decal sheet for 1 aircraft.

A very nice decal sheet and will be helpful for anyone building a big 1/32 Fw-190A.
