were masked and virtually identical on planes that had them. The upper surface
is RLM 83 so you need to find a shade to match the fin. Undersides of all these
is RLM 76. This plane was with III./EJG 2.

more like what recce 262s carried with the upper surfaces in what appears to be
a lightened RLM 71 with RLM 70 squiggles.
The sheet provides sufficient data markings and insignia for two of the three
