about JG 301 markings

Hi !

First thanks for this magnificent book describing planes near one by one with so many photos and such nice profiles!

My question is just that i would like to know why someone from NASM told you that the Ta 152 blue horizontal bar marking is a post-war marking ?

From what i can see this marking was under the very early overpainting markings done by the English then the Americans. And we dont have any photos showing the aircraft under his previous German markings to be able to say that this blue bar was not there...

So imho this blue marking looks pretty original and not only because i could be biased/slanted since i have said that a green horizontal bar must be the JG301 Gechwader marking before knowing that they found a blue one!

Cheers, Olivier
