    According to my info the RLM02 was a kind of a grey-green paint of brown or olive tonality. The one in pictures you posted the link to, is not too accurate. Just paints used for these planes there seem to be made of different components comparing to these of WW2 time and can be influenced by the light conditions in a different way, I think.

    Please check the link ...

    I use revell 45 enamel for RLM 02, and Humbrol 32 or Revell 9 enamels for RLM 66. May not be exact, but the accuracy is acceptable to me.
