Anyone have a source for information on these – what unit/aircraft type and when? I'm repainting some 1/144 21st century FW 190's….

Summer '44, and most fighter units; examples of the different JGs here:

Excellent, thanks! I didn't realize they came in so late – obviously I don't need to worry about them for my late 43/early 44 campaign time frame

Sorted then…. ;-) Well worth bookmarking that site actually – it's handy on all manner of Luftwaffe markings and camouflage questions….

Oh gawd! Not another set of bands to paint on tiny planes. I have to find some suitable decal stripes.

Great link Dom.

You could try automotive pin striping; I used it successfully to do invasion stripes on 1/72 gliders

Dom,TVM; that's a fantastic resource for all things Luftwaffe markings!
