Me-262 "Black 1" 8.KG(J) 6

Hell all. I am working on an airplane model of the Me-262 and i wanted to use Eagle Cals #138 set to depict "Black 1" from 8. KG(J) 6. What is confusing about the set is that a side profile shows airplane with the RLM 02 nose and what appears to be RLM 83 dark green fuselage and vertical stabilizer. The top view shows the airplane with RLM81/82 standard splinter camouflage.


Supposedly the reference used was "Luftwaffe over Czech Territory - 1945 III Messerschmitt Me 262s of KG and KG (J) Units" by Japo, specifically pages 145-149.


Does anyone have the said book and could share with me these pages so I can decipher the correct camouflages or help me out otherwise?


Here is the link to Eagle Cals cover page showing the RLM 02 nose and what appears to be RLM83 fuselage. It seems they borrowed these profiles from the above mentioned book. Eagle Cals added their own top and bottom views which add the RLM81/83 camouflage, which is what confuses me.


Thank you.

Thanks Col.

To my eye, the fuselage looks to me RLM82 and not RLM81/83. What do you think?
