ORANGE LINE – LACQUER BASED PAINTS
Standard camouflage colours of Luftwaffe planes from 1937 till 1941
The famous „two-green” splinter camouflage (70+71/65) was used on majority of Luftwaffe aircraft from early 1937 till November/ December 1939, when Luftwaffe day fighters switched to more offensive scheme of 02+71/65. The latter was again modified around May 1940 to include soft mottling of RLM 02 (or 71) on fuselage sides, engines and tail.
Early camouflage of 70+71/65 remained in use on transport aircraft, bombers and ground attack planes till mid-1944.
