Thumbs up Fw190 A-8 main tag

I am looking for a Fw190 A-8 main tag. Does anyone know where or how to find one?
Would also someone know what they looked like and where on the fuselage it was installed? If anyone had a photo that would be great!

Grateful for any help!

Re: Fw190 A-8 main tag

Fw190 main tags are represented by several 4-sided and 6-sided styles; some examples may be found here (thank you Andrew):

There was considerable variation in the information on the plates - both as made (i.e., nomenclature etched on manufactured blank plates) and as used (i.e., aircraft-specific entries stamped in during production).

The plates were riveted to the exterior of the fuselage on the left side in the vicinity of the Balkenkreuz. A careful look at period photos will reveal the plates when not painted over (as often was the case).
Collecting data plates (typenschild) and control stick grips (knüppelgriff) from Luftwaffe aircraft.
