    Hello Gang
    I'm in a bit of a bind.I'm in the process of building a Bf 109G-4/trop.I'm looking for camo schemes used and colors used in them.I.ve seen pictures of many different camo schemes but nothing really for the desert .Any ideas ?
    I've looked here but really found any thing Color wise that is I guess the only color I've found is RLM 79. But I can't find any thing close to it . Guess I've been building ARMOUR for to long.Just Getting Back to My frist love. WW2 Fighters and Bombers... Next Project is a LANCASTER... That I can Handle.
    Any help would be a great help Thank_You in Advance

    Well you have the European Greys 74/75/76, 79/78, or 79/80 over 78?
    JG53 is a prime candidate using all 3 combinations....

    What scale are you doing ?

    For German desert camo there were used these colours :

    1. RLM 78 Hellgrau for lower surfces.
    2. RLM 79 Sandgelb for upper surfaces.
    3. RLM 80 Olivgrun for mottling on upper surfaces.

    Additional colours were

    4. RLM 70 SCHWARZGRÜN for propellers.
    5. RLM 04 GELB for quick ID elements
    6. RLM 21 WEIß for quick ID elements

    Look at the page : RLM Colors
