Re: Luftwaffe Camouflage and Markings - Color Chips

Dear Mark
thank you very much for your continued investigation. If I understand your last post correctly, Mr. Merrick stated, that the mistake lies in the color photos not the color chips. That has to be a misunderstanding, as the exclamation in your earlier post perfectly "fits" my problem WITH THE COLORCHIP IN A WRONG COLOR.
In my first post I gave the wrong color card (from memory). But in the meantime I checked the color sample against some reference cards (NOT ORIGINAL CARDS i must confess) and it seems to be a close match fpr the color labeled Farbton "45" in the eagle productions color card. This was confirmed by the editor, Mr. Creek, who told me in an email, that the problem was caused by a misplaced (?) color chip. Unfortunately Iīm at work now and am not able to mail the editorīs answer to you or correctly state, wether the wrong color chip was in the 1938 color card or the 1936 edition.
If you are interested I can send you a copy of the mail from Mr. Creek.

All the best
