    I am not up on German colors. Can anyone help me with what color this aircraft would be while in German hands.
    Thought this would be a fun build.

    First one looks ok to me, but make the swastika larger to aviod "friendly fire".

    ?? The photos show the size of the actual markings. I'm asking what RLM spec number the Green might be.

    They probably weren't repainted, and remained in Olive Drab. If theyb were repainted, then my guess would be RLM 71 Dunkelgrun.

    This plane was "captured' from a Dutch flying club and originally would have been in yellow with a black pin stripe (most likely). The RLM 71 is what I was looking for, thanks. I have read that it was touched up with neutral grey and O.D. that didn't match when taken over by the Americans. The photographes seem to show that very well.
