But ... is there enough space for a "46"?

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Hello Rasmussen,
Yes I believe there is enough room. I should have been precise when I mentioned the font and method of application.
Erla used a font that was compressed, meaning that it was tall and thin.
I have numerous photos of Erla-Leipzig-built Bf109s in which the first or last numerals of the Werknummern are spang up against the leading edge of their fins.
In some cases, this closeness manifests itself in the leading digit partially wrapping around the leading-edge of the fin.
This form of application seems to be the rule rather than the exception on the 46xxxx family of Bf 109 G-14’s.
Respectfully,
Steve Sheflin
