    remember that there were a couple of Blue 13's in Stab JG 300 flown by W. Dahl.

    remember the B-17 within the gunsight motif is only worn on the left side of the engine cowling, the 13 is outlined in white

    Hello Erich,

    I hesitate regarding the gunsight motif and the white outlined for my project... On the picture (in german language) from the summer 1944, it says there isn't no white outlined and there isn't any reference regarding the gunsight motif...
    [​IMG]

    There are well known photos or illustrations regarding another Dahl aircraft flown late in 1944 with the gunsight and blue 13 with white outlined

    I don't know what to think...

    Germany had so many aces, imagine if we did models of them all!

    I think you better get a copy of J-Y. Lorants JG 300 volumes

    the blue 13 had a white outline as shown in your foto, I said earlier that Dahl flew a couple different A-8's.
