Carlos Schneerson is back again with a handy article on Luftwaffe colors and camouflage. He's taken the time to do some research and make some nice charts for the aircraft modeler. Just follow the link below.

Thanks Carlos!

Carlos,

Thank you!

Here are some URLs you mentioned, or not. I have a b'zillion of them, many duplicates, and they list RLM and how to obtain them. A lot comparing old Humbrol with new Humbrol, and mixing of discontinued colors like RLM 72 & 73, and matching to Polly Scale, MM, Tamiya, etc.
