Fw 190A-8/R8 Sturmbock of Karl Rusack, 5./JG 300, Löbnitz Germany, January 1945.  Rusack was credited with five victories.  He was shot down in April 1945 and survived the war.  The aircraft is finished in a standard 74 / 75 / 76 scheme, oversprayed with dark green veins to provide better concealment on the ground from prowling Allied fighters.
