Lightbulb Luftwaffe Camouflage and Markings - Color Chips

Hello all
Last week I finally received my copy of Merrick`s “Luftwaffe Camouflage and Markings”. As far as I can see, it is full of valuable information. I can only state, that I am fully satisfied with this volume – and eagerly await the second one.
What really puzzles me is a seemingly “wrong” color chip on the second sheet (the one from 1938). The colour 28 looks much more like “brown” than “Weinrot”. The color chip in the In the previous sheet (from 1936) does not show the same color. I therefore believe that this chip must be misplaced in this special color chard. Other colour chips (Ullmann, 1998, Eagle Cals, T. Chory, …) seem to confirm this conclusion.
What I´m interested in is: Is this really a mistake that means a wrong color chip? Perhaps in my copy only? All I need is an explanation… As I think this color chip (“Weinrot”) in the 1938 edition should be the same as the color chip on the sheet from 1936, I should be satisfied with the answer “yes”.
Thank you very much
Ralph Zimmer
