From the Vault

These are some early analogue shots of 1/48 Focke Wulfs taken by Brett Green back in the 90s. All these models were commission jobs, accept for the Trimaster D-9 ‘blue 1’, which is the second, and last, D-9 from this manufacturer that I ever built for myself. The Ta 152 C was the first collaboration build by Brett and me. We split the fee 50/50.

  1. Hello Chris, your work is exquisite and goes to another level of craftsmanship! I’m preparing to build Dragon’s Ta152 C-0, CIXM, as you have here. It appears that you used RLM 83 (dark green) , RLM 81 Braunviolet, for the fuselage, and RLM 75 Grayviolet RLM 83 for the upper wings. Was that your interpretation, or did you find a reference? I found an interesting document recently that is apparently from the Focke Wulf factory painting guide for late war aircraft – listing RLM 81, 82 (light green) I believe. Anyway, these aircraft are such fun studies!! Thank you.

  2. Hello Matthew, I am always very humbled when I hear such glowing comments (please keep ’em coming). This model was a commission build and one of the first collaborations done by Brett and me back in the ’90s and I’m pretty sure that the only reference that I had for colours was the kit instructions and lots of b/w photos. Even though the quality of the numerous photos of this aircraft is very good it is still impossible to positively identify the colours. My interpretation of these photos was that the kit painting instructions were probably right. Who knows for sure. RLM painting guides were not always strictly adhered to so go with what you believe is right.

    Hope this is vague enough for you,

    Cheers,
    Chris.
