Seeking Hptm. Wolfgang Lippert RK Scoreboard Photo

As part of a much larger project, I'm attempting to fully document with photos and color profile art the RKT a/c of all winners during 1940. One of my 109 problems has long been Hptm. Wolfgang Lippert, Gr.Kdr. II./JG 27, who won the award on 24.9.40 with 12 victories. I've recently acquired photos of his a/c about the end of August, 1940, and later in Sept. One shows his scoreboard with about 12 victories, but it is far enough away that the individual score marks aren't very clear. There also may be some ballons indicated on this scoreboard. Does anyone have a photo, or know a source of one, for the scoreboard on his 109 circa late-August, 1940, and of the same a/c at the time of the RK award on 24.9.40? I'm aware of the published photos of his a/c in the Balkans early in 1941, and have searched all standard reference works in English and German.

Note: the profile art in John Weal's "Bf 109D/E Aces 1939-41," from Osprey is not correct. This is dated 9.40, but is the a/c he flew later in the Balkans, not the Battle of Britain.

Any source for this needed information would be much appreciated, and will be eventually published for the benefit of all.
