Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Dobro Srecko,

Thanks for your praise. The colour shot of this G-10 does not convey what a black and white picture does show: an overall RLM 83 camouflage with probably natural metal wings undersurfaces, like W.Nr. 152 3.3.

The G-10 colour shot was taken at Grafenwöhr airfield, in May 1945. I wil try to put my hand again on the b/w photograph and post it.

Cheers
Marc

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

The Me109G-10 "Gigi" with the small fin IMO is "Black 7" not "White 11" I have a very clear photo (ie: neutral contrast) and there's no hint of an white eleven. I beleive, (like Me109G-10 "white 11, Rosemarie") this is also a JG 51 machine.

Otherwise a very nice album, thanks for posting it! =)

I believe that at least some of these aircraft might actually have been painted in two dark colors alhough with low contrast - perhaps getting even lower due to thin applications. The reason is that the black and white photo showing the G-10 at Grafenwöhr has faint lines demarcation lines that could just have been various thickness of paint, but then there's similar lines in similar places on other aircraft opening for the possibility of a pattern of some sort.

/ Anders

EDIT: I updated my old profile of this aircraft. The choice of colors are just a theory but it looks the part in black and white. When I looked at the colorphoto of this aircraft I noticed from the wing leading edges that it seems to have had RLM75/83 wings.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

For comparison I did another profile for my blog based on a photo found at Neil Pages blog a long time ago. The photo depicts the right hand side of an Erla built G-10 and shows what could be a camoflagepattern that would fit nicely with the one seen on the left hand side of the "Grafenwöhr G-10".

Now I'll quit hi-jacking this thread, sorry... Got carried away.

Anders,

Thanks for your profiles. I concur for the Grafenwöhr machine, but not for W.Nr. 150 119 and 152 3.3. Those are obviously overall RLM 83 machines.

As for "Gigi", I jet can't remember posting it: getting old those days;-))

Cheers
Marc

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

150 119 is hard to judge since the photo is a little bleached on it's own but you might be right. 152 3.3. might just have some different shades though. Look at the area on the front half of the enginecowling for example.

I think it will be impossible to be certain of any of these schemes but at least we can be certain that it's Erla built aircraft we're dealing with.

Cheers! / Anders

W.Nr. 150 119 didn't exist.

Anders,

I will look at 152 3.3 with a calm head... ASAP.

Rasmussen,

Thanks for your input; may I ask for your source?

Thanks in advance
Marc
