Re: FW 190 D-9 stencil

Of course Gilles.

But as banning is gliding above me, I shall reconsider posting...

Be nice with the birdman or it will fly away X2

ClinA-78

PS : on allied board, is discussed the allied side of this combat which wears a mystery still to be resolved.

Re: FW 190 D-9 stencil

As some of you cannot waiting more, here she goes:

Pot pourri of some fragments showing brown-green color from WNr. 210264 of Flg. Hans BERGMEIER, KIA on the 26/12/44 in Bouillon area (B), victim of 361th FG.
The (very few) camo parts picked on the litter where in much better state that others parts unearthed.

The blue part (at left) comes from WNr. 600155 whose pilot, Uffz. Otto SCHÖNDORF (POW) jumped very low but survived! He came back in the '90 to meet some civilians whom rescued him (his chute was tangled in an oak).

Up to you, Dora'olics

ClinA-78

PS : parts are now dry

Re: FW 190 D-9 stencil

Nice photo. The color is RLM 82 Hellgrün which is commonly found on D-9s. Samples from different factories and recovered in different areas are consistent in color and quality and seem to have tough finish while some other colors are less durable. Dr. Pomper of the leading paint company, Warnecke & Böhm, developed a patented resin based paint formula named Ikarol. It provided superior adhesion to aluminum and magnesium thus eliminating the need of primer. This saved time ,money,material and weight.
Cheers, Jerry

Re: FW 190 D-9 stencil

Guys,
I am fully aware that what I am doing here (and I hope ClinA-78 doesn't mind) is not scientific and precise at all!
But still maybe someone would consider it helpful for any further (basic) discussion... I have taken middle values for each of the parts and created this:

Outstanding contribution, Milos. It is an interesting exersice to take your work and compare it with the published RLM paint chip colors and profiles. Thank you.

Re: FW 190 D-9 stencil

Re: FW 190 D-9 stencil

Dear Bronc,
It would be amazing if I had access to these parts with my cameras & calibrated systems with color checkers & grey card so we could establish the real close to scientific values of these paints - first in RGB and then further.
Above thin is purely there for "easier" reading of the crumbled parts & should >not< be taken as absolute reference, please! Just a support tool.
Glad you like it anyhow

And thanks for all the posts ClinA-78. What the Blue part could be coming from??? Which paint that could be? RLM83?
