Transportgeschwader TG 4 few questions

Hello All
We are creating profile for Ju 52/3m w.n.10138 from 7/TG4 and I have couple of questions.

II/TG 4 was formed from KGr. z.b.v 500 (May 1943) ?
I found this info in internet and Luftwaffe Transport units 43-45; Martin Pegg book (vol 2).

Unit code was G6 ?

Staffel letter for 7 staff... should be R ?

II gruppe; 5 staffel - N, 6 staffel - P, 7 staffel - R, 8 staffel - S
and tactical markings on rudder would be II 7 and below aircraft letter

What kind of markings should be applied in factory?
Code (wings and fuselage), swastika and balkenkreutz.
If you have photo of Ju 52 with factory markings that would be great.

I know that in real life there was many different types of markings, is this how would be in theory.

bonus question?
Is there any picture available of Ju 52 from 2./Erg.TGr. from Berlin-Schonwalde?

as always, thanks in advance
