We now know that ERLA didn't have any RLM 83, usually described as Dark green.
Is it possible to say what shades of dark paint ERLA had, when the G-10 W.Nr. 150xxx was built?
This seems a lot easier than debating and guessing about what other paints they could have used to paint them with.

Ah Ferdinando,

I see it too; my thoughts were about a bending on the fuselage, but after checking it out, I don't see any actual bend in the airframe. So you might be right;-))

Hej Micke,

Correct. I do hope Rasmussen or Charles Bavarois will shed some light on this issue...

Cheers

They will probably put their knowledge on paper in a not too far future, maybe teamed with an excellent author... Let's wait and see with a hint of patience.

Was this on a document? When in 1944 was it ordered to drop RLM 74? Also as this was mid 1944 or so, there were probably shortages in paint, I would assume they would use RLM 74 until it was all used up, no?
