    for a future project. i believe this one was originally shown in an over all 02 grey-green scheme. at a later date the Bu133 was covered with squiggles in 74 or 75. it may have carried the croation "cross". i lost my copies of an old scale aircraft modeling magazine with a two part series on non-109 aircraft in service with those beautiful images. if any one knows where to find them or if you can mail me your copy, i would be greatly indebted to you.

    regards

    Here you go Robi. Hope this helps. This color profile of Croatian Bu 133 is from book "Zrakoplovstvo NDH 1941-1945". The translation of the caption with the profile: 19th Squadron, 1st Group, Zagreb, April 1945
    I will look further through some of my materials. If I find some more pictures of this aricraft will post them as well.

    Regards
    Igor

    Thanks guys.
    I also found few pictures of Croatian Bü 133 - first with original factory paint scheme, then with improvised camouflage scheme and finally with new red star insignia after aircraft had been captured by partisans. Source: "Zrakoplovstvo NDH 1941-1945".
