Painting Pipps Prillers FW-190
Posted by MonsterZero on Friday, March 09, 2018 11:29 AM

So I started by airbrushing RLM-65 light blue on the underside of the aircraft and then I paused for a moment. But wait, is the aircraft RLM-65 blue all over, including top surfaces, and then they applied camo patches over the blue?

Monster - the blue should just be the underside and then up the side of the fuselage.

I'm confused. It says "the color is the standard Luftwaffe RLM 74/75/76 pattern. The mottling on the fuselage is RLM 74.

But when they show the underbelly of the aircraft it says "undersufaces: RLM 65 light blue"

Monster - Is that info coming from two different sources or just the instructions? Can you post a pic of the intructions and maybe we can offer some more advice?

RLM 65 should not be used on a day fighter 190 in 1944. Not unless there is some proof of a custom repaint. Out of the factory at that time 74/75/76 was the standard production scheme for 190 day fighters.

It certainly would not be 65 underneath and 76 on the sides. 76 would be the right colour for that type at that stage of the war.

Well it's too late now because the underside is already painted. I can live with it.

If you have not put on the decals yet, you can paint 76 over the 65.
