primer on fw-190 rudder ?

Hi All,
Just been browsing
planes & pilots No 9 FW-190
by dominique breffort & andre jouineau

On page 8 there are two profiles,
one of V5,Wn0005, showing a faded red rudder.
one of A-0/U13,Wn0027,showing a slightly less faded red rudder.

quote
'it's rudder was given a coat of reddish primer'

Curiosity strikes me, anyone know if the profiles are correct ?
cheers
jerry

I have not seen the profiles concerned, but from experience of having seen quite a few remnants of recovered rudder fabric they were usually coated with a dull brick-red primer with the camo over the that.

I am sure there will be many here far better qualified than me to expand on that and possibly give you an RLM shade....if there is one!!

Hi Andy
Thanks for the info on what you have found, makes sense, if the rudder is fabric, that it would have a primer first.
cheers
Jerry
