A small update. Not quite done with the fuselage texture yet.

Looking good Pixal, is that pure white under the squiggly line if so its better to be a little of white. If its in a layer and you want it to stand out a little you can double click on the right side of the layer brings up the layer style click on outer glow change the mix to normal change the colour to gray and the size to 1 or 2 that should give a nice edge.................dave

Thanks Dave. The white band was worrying me a bit. I'll add a hint of outer glow to it.

@Dave, that outer glow really helped. Thanks.
Small change. Just added all the text/signs, some general fading and weathering on the rivets. Done with the fuselage. Will visit it again when I'm done with the exhaust section. Have to add the exhaust soot at the same time for consistency.
Had an interesting time lining up the text below/right of the regiment sign (~). In the end I projected a temp texture onto the two sections, baked them out and used the baked images as a guide in PS.

Looking good Pixal.

There was a model shop here in Michigan (USA) called Squadron Shop and they used the eagle head of the FW 190 as their company logo. I used to be an avid 1/48th scale WWII aircraft modeler ages ago. The shop is now mail order only but I recognized the emblem from your current screen shot.
