Luftwaffe paint job

Post by sid » Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:57 pm

I got myself a bag of planes for BTH for Battle of Britain. The RAF are fairly simple can anyone point me to a good guide for the Luftwaffe and specific paint references eg RLM65 lower surfaces use Vallejo code.....

Hi!!
For fighters I'd use:
RLM02 vallejo 886 green grey
RLM71 vallejo 830 german fieldgrey or vallejo 892 yellow olive
RLM65 vallejo 906 pale blue

For bombers:
RLM70 vallejo 896 german camouflage extra dark green
RLM71 vallejo 830 german fieldgrey or vallejo 892 yellow olive
RLM65 vallejo 906 pale blue

Try it and tell me what you think.

Emilio.
