    awesome! part of the mystery is being solved.. love it. now, is there a source for G-6 WNr's?
    I think this may have been a WNF built Bf109G-6. thanks.

    Could be what you say...tried standing further back from the laptop to see it clearer, but still hard to say for sure.

    I don't think there is room for an 8 in the middle, I think it's either 95132 or 95182

    yes I do, but its not much help. here's the cleaned up picture with the
    gamma, contrast, lightness adjusted. had to google for the answer on
    how to read the numbers.

    its for sure WNr.95182, built at the Györ, Hungary Plant.

    thanks. the Györ, Hungary Plant was said only to produce G-6's in the 95000-97000 block.
    this one was delivered new to an airfield SE of Frankfurt Main AM. 750km as the crow flies
    during the winter of 1944/1945! I think at this time the Györ, Hungary Plant was under Mtts-Reg control.
