Interesting airplane, shows a 4th Gruppe marking (the wavy rear fuselage line on the white background) but the version is trying to be an A4 (short nose, 7.7mm gun panel and fin with the tall aerial mast). When the A4's were flying there were only 3 Gruppen to a Geshwader. The rear fuselage contours are not FW, but it does look just like a well known ARF. Is this a homebuilt? Doesn't seem to be enough dihedral, and the wing tips also appear to have the wrong contour. Some one will come up with the Jg associated with the white RVD band. Then you can work out what melange of markings it has, but from what you show they appear to be spurious.
