Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

We now know that ERLA didn't have any RLM 83, usually described as Dark green.
Is it possible to say what shades of dark paint ERLA had, when the G-10 W.Nr. 150xxx was built?
This seems a lot easier than debating and guessing about what other paints they could have used to paint them with.

Ah Ferdinando,

I see it too; my thoughts were about a bending on the fuselage, but after checking it out, I don't see any actual bend in the airframe. So you might be right;-))

Hej Micke,

Correct. I do hope Rasmussen or Charles Bavarois will shed some light on this issue...

Cheers
Marc

They will probably put their knowledge on paper in a not too far future, maybe teamed with an excellent author... Let's wait and see with a hint of patience.

Was this on a document? When in 1944 was it ordered to drop RLM 74? Also as this was mid 1944 or so, there were probably shortages in paint, I would assume they would use RLM 74 until it was all used up, no?
