Jörg,

This issue was addressed by David Weiss and another person within the posts in this thread. In no position to give you more help as I'm on a field trip in Lebanin, sorry!

Cheers
Marc

Such cowlings can be found either on later G-6 and several G-14. Only that the double bulge had no use and meant nothing on those aircraft, being conceived for the G-5 only. That's it.

Ferdinando, any guesses on Rosemaries W.Nr.? I'm guessing 610 XXX. Also, I seen the pilot was Ofw. Richter, however I cannot find any record of him in JG 51 or JG 52? Would you know anything about him? Thanks.

No way. Guesses on Werke Nummern which can't be seen are a "dangerous" job, IMHO.

Also, I'm not an expert of any kind on Luftwaffe personnel, I'm sorry.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

No problem. Thanks for your help. What I know from post# 207 is that II./JG 51 & II./JG 52 only recieved G-10's from the 610 000 to 610 600 batch. II./JG 51 was transfered to II./JG 52. We know its a WNF built machine, so Its safe to say that 'Rosemarie' was W.Nr.610 XXX. I'm still checking into Ofw.Richter as the pilot. Unfortunatly http://www.don-caldwell.we.bs/claims/tonywood.htm only has records to December, 1944 and there is no Ofw.Richter in either JG 51/52/53.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Greetings,


Interesting post.


I have 267 files of WNF-built Bf109G-10s in my files. Of those supported by photographs, all from the 610XXX Werknummer series feature all black Hakenkreuze. Those from the 611XXX, 612XXX, and 613XXX series invariably feature White/Black Hakenkreuze. If my observations mean anything, I am suspicious that Bf109G-10 “Rosemarie” is not from the 610XXX series.

Years ago, Mr. James V. Crow indicated that the pilot of “Rosemarie” was an, “Ofw. Richter.” I think he learned this information from Mr. Barbas in 1987.

Finally, the painted-over II.Gruppe bar in front of “Rosemarie’s” small white II./JG 52 plane number supports the fact that it last served with II./JG 51. That form of II.Gruppe marking is unique to II./JG 51.

Hello,

I considered the white outlined Hakenkreuze on Rosemarie. My theory is that with the damage repair to the rudder and fuse above the tail wheel, either the fin was replaced, or repaired & repainted.

I should add thank you very much for your information!

Thanks again! You wouldn't happen to have anymore info/pics/leads on 'Rosemarie' would you?
