    P-47M 56th FG colors

    In discussions I have with some 352nd FG "experts", they routinely polished some of their aircraft with shoe polish in the search for speed. That would certainly change the color on the aircraft after application. Mark Proulx

    "Black Rufe" Mosquito flown by Alan Kipp

    On May 3, 1944, Kipp/Huletsky claimed four Fw 190's in Black Rufe. Those four victories saw 418 achieve their 100th victory, air and ground combined. Hence, the 100 applied to the nose art of this Mosquito. HTH Mark Proulx
  7. Definitely interesting.  The size difference in size between the squadron code is unusual.

    This perhaps of interest?

    Revell Two-Seat 262 1/32

    There is an extensive thread about this kit at LSP. On page 5, the gear door situation is discussed. http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=64104&hl= gear doors&page=5 HTH Mark Proulx

    rlm65 a bit confused

    FWIW, Ullmans opus Luftwaffe Colors 1935-1945 provides color chips. Among the choices is RLM 65 Hellblau (1938) which is more towards blue. Another chip, presented immediately beside is RLM 65 Hellblau (1941) which is more towards green. Note same RLM designator and name but in two different colors for different periods in time.

    rlm65 a bit confused

    Additionally, when you look at surviving relic pieces, there are different shades of RLM 66 too... Mark Proulx

    rlm65 a bit confused

    I am away from my references at the moment. If my memory serves me correctly, discussed by Ullman. I also have documents at home discussing difficulties surrounding RLM 65. Additionlly, I have fragments oF Stuka airframe pieces clearly green in hue (the Stuka RLM 65 undersides) Mark Proulx

    rlm65 a bit confused

    Yes, there are different shades of RLM 65. Prior to late 1941, more of blue hue. After that, more of a green hue. Though two colors, it remained RLM 65. Mark Proulx

    Fw 190 wreck Black 3 and Bf 110 found in barn in Russia?

    The 190 pics have been published some time ago in the Luftwaffe Im Focus series.
