Nice!

Sights like these only make me wish even more that the restauration company at my local airport finally manages to finish that Fw 190D-9/N they are currently working on...

Where is that located?  The museum that owns this one has a D-9 reproduction built by Flugwerk: Focke-Wulf Fw-190 D-9 Dora.  The only other D model I only know of is Paul Allen's in Seattle which is an original..

The Fw 190D-9 I mention is owned by the Eric Vormezele collection, and is airframe 990006 of the Neubau Fw 190s.  She is currently being completed by the FAST Team at Antwerp International Airport in Deurne, Belgium.  She will be given the identity of 210102 "White 3" of 9./JG54, which was shot down at Waasmunster, Belgium on January 1st 1945 during the attack on the Sint-Denys-Westrem airfield.

Interestingly, 210102 was recovered in 2004; 990006 is scheduled incorporate a number of its components and parts using original components as a template, as well as a genuine Jumo 213 engine.

I found the following picture of the bare airframe:

As well as a bachelor thesis of a student who did his thesis on the reverse engineering of the engine suspension (the document is in Dutch, but also contains some pictures of the restored Jumo engine)

And some separate pictures of restored parts from the 'donor' aircraft:
