HTK-CS03 ORANGE LINE – Late Luftwaffe paint set



Standard camouflage colours of Luftwaffe planes from 1944 till 1945

1944 was the year of introduction of several new camouflage colours for all Luftwaffe aircraft. RLM 83 introduced in the first half of 1944 was most probably a replacement of RLM 74 in previous 74/75/76 scheme, as simplified 75/76 pattern proved not effective for ground concealment from air attacks. RLM 81/82/76 (with lower surfaces left in bare metal where possible) became an official pattern from August 1944. At least till end of the year RLM 83 (due to austerity reasons finally not included in the official scheme) was still widely used for mottling over other colours. In order to use up the current stocks of formerly used paints, basic schemes applied in real life included RLM 75/81/76, 75/82/76, 75/83/76, 82/83/76 and 81/83/76.
