i´m looking for some late war paintschemes - the green and/or brown pantings - anyone knows one (link)?

the only one i´ve found is this one at the homepage from eagle edition:

(http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z55/Boelcke/image002-1.jpg)

but i´m not sure if it is historical correct, so if someone can help me would be fine :)

Hi Boelcke,
Thanks for your sinkpacks!  :)
I have been looking for Yellow 8 in books. I have fund a colour picture of Yellow 8 in "Captures Butcherbirds Vol.1". Camouflage on the side seems to go much lower. Comparing with other aircraft with RLM 81/82/76 in Kagero books seems to confirm that. I don't know if it is the same bird cause looking on the Eagle's site I've fund this profile...:

Skin is here!!!:

But RLM 81 seems not to be correct... Nothing is perfect!

Post by: Boelcke on April 25, 2010, 10:16:32 AM
thx anikollag, it should be the bird you found at eagle editions - i see that the second Gruppe bar should be white insted of yellow :)

the concerning skins at M4T ... well, other skins are also interpretations of the plane, so one can´t use a skin as template for another

perhaps some else has also sources for late war painting of the Fw190 A´s ?

(http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z55/Boelcke/Fw190A9_yellow8_JG301.jpg)

it´s difficult to say it the fuselage is RLM 81 or not

here is my yellow 8

(http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z55/Boelcke/2904201017-29-12.jpg)

a Fw 190 A9 of JG 11 in the rare RLM 81/82/76 scheme:

You've find the picture! :) So nice! I didn't know how to insert it without putting a HTML link  :-[
Great stuff!! I like your skins! Yellow 1 is real cool! Kagero is a nice source of inspiration ;)
Concerning yellow 8 I like your interpretation.  8) And I'm looking forward to fly it  ;D Here are some comments. I think that the white bar is a little bit too large.
I don't know what the color of the cowling was, but I think that the front part of the cooling and the part in front of the windscreen is the same color.
I have the impression that the side of the plane is a little bit dirtier. But this is my interpretation! :) And, as you know, about this subject there is no absolute true!
Thanks a lot for your work. Looking forward to try your skins in your campaigns ;)

Hi Boelcke,
Thanks for taking my comments into account. :)
Yesterday, after answering to you, I was looking into Merrick’s Luftwaffe Camouflage and Markings 1933-1945 Photo Archive 1 (Midland Pub., 2007) to find which colour was the cowling and I have found Merrrick’s very interesting caption about this picture: “Camouflage appears to be 81/83 rather than 81/82. Judging by the dark colour on the open cowling in front of the cockpit, as well as on the fin, which looks too dark in tone for 82.” … “The 81 colouring can best seen directly under the cockpit quarter-light area and above the number “8””. … “the 76 colouring of the fuselage having been toned down with an overspray of 02.” … “The addition of dark mottles of 83 on the engine cowling had been done with a soft spray of closely grouped mottles to form an almost solid appearance.”
Very interesting, isn't it?! I had to zoom the cowling to see the mottles, but he is right! Merrick did a very interesting interpretation of this picture. German camouflage is always so complicated! But I think that is why it is so interesting! :)
Anyway it is up to you to choose your version of this beautiful bird. As far as I'm concerned both suite me!  ;D

Man you're just GREAT!
Yellow 8 is just beautiful! Choosing Merrick's interpretation is certainly as close from reality as it could be!
I like a lot the RLM 02 on the sides :)
Thanks so much for all those skins!!!!!!
Guess what I am going to do ;)

Everythings there, except this Pack.
Not even under Themed Aircraft Skinpacks.

If anyone could afford uploading again, would be nice, I would like to grab them again.

Cheers
