Seeking photos that show yellow tactical markings on 5./JG52 Bf109s during Aug, 1940

Hello,

For the EoE project, we're working through the color profiles (seven) for 5./JG52 for the 1939-40 period. I'm having to come up with a profile showing the yellow tactical markings used on unit aircraft starting around mid-August of 1940. Right now, I have only one photo that shows that the unit did use yellow wingtips, but I don't know if its aircraft also had yellow tail tips, and a partially yellow rudder, such as the yellow triangular marking at the top of the rudder carried by some units during this period. We know that the unit later used yellow cowlings and rudders, but I need photos showing the transition period when these yellow markings were first used.

If anyone has photos for the Gruppenstab, 4 or 6 Staffeln, with examples of these markings from this same period, this would also be very useful.

Can anyone help?
