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.

First off, great collection! I'll be browsing it with great interest.

August 1944 is too early for the Erla-built G-10's I think. The earliest example in dark camo that I know of is Yellow 5 of JG300 and it was photographed in December 1944.

I known of the all black Bf109G-6/AS that was published in the Luftwaffe im Focus series a few years back but I'm not sure whether this aircraft is similar.

Regarding the JG3 aircraft, The contrast in the photo is very high and the propblades that would have been RLM70 looks very black as well so it could be a dark camoflagecolor instead of black.

Cheers! / Anders

Thank you very much Marc, collection is so impressive and nice. Best part is that you have put credit on each one so visitor could do further search for publication. Last image is this one (no.4) I have seen as Smithsonian image and it look like all black machine. Any thoughts?

Cheers :)
