Re: Hungarian Fw 190 ? (E-Bay photo)

From Sept. 1944 on, all warplanes subordinated to Luftflotte 4 - incl. Hungarian ones - supposed to be marked with a large 'V' on the port wing undersurface, in lieu of the yellow bottom wingtips, so they would not be confused with "treacherous" Rumanian aircraft. I cannot see the marking. True, in the last stage of war, these markings were discontinued (I don't have my references handy to give more detailed dates). Except for the large white numeral on the engine cowling, I don't see any other detail that would denote a Hungarian manned machine.
On another hand, everything was possible...
