Late war Bf 109 pictures source
 
Hi there gang,

I started some ten months ago to reference and put online all known late war Bf 109 pictures which Werk Nummer are known; I took great care to give the reference when known.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/28092068@N03/

They are all sorted out by subtypes to the best of my knowledge. The result is not really impressive: less then 400 W.Nr. known machines are illustrated out of the 10'000+ built. This leaves plenty of room for improvement, isn' it? All inputs are most welcome.

Finally, if you do feel a copyright has been infringed, please let me know and I will remove the pics from public view.

Cheers
Marc

Great and interesting work.

I've tried to contribute with a few comments/corrections on photographs of ANR aircraft.

Under nose look to be bottom color but rest look like black. Too bad scan so nothing can be stated with absolute accuracy, depending of the film features this could be also red :) (I don't think that but...)

Interesting picture. Plane seems to have some kind of tailband. JG 300 red band?

Should be a great model then: black plane, red tailband and yellow cowl...

Some rambling while enjoying my lunch...

Best regards,

Philippe

To regret number seven can not be seen, maybe covered by wing?

Dobro Pilot,

Yes, I see now the picture. Jochen Prien could help us along here, as he captioned the picture in his excellent book on III./JG 3.

IMHO, beware interpreting it as another all black machine: "Gelbe 7" is taken against the sun; thus it could be also one of those rare overall RLM 82 or RLM 83 machines as known for the ERLA built G-10's in the 151 xxx W.Nr range.

Cheers
Marc
