Re: Real Colors of WWII Aircraft

The German colours are altered to the scale colour theory, based on the calculations made from the l*a*b* values of the original colours. Reproductions of the colour cards added to L.Dv. 521/1 (both 1938 and 1941 edition) are also included, along with a photo of RLM 83 recipe and colour card made on the basis of this recipe, using the same components. The process of reproducing the late war colours was very time-consuming and troublesome, as many of the components are now banned from industrial use in EU.
