Since it's three months since my last post I thought I'd start a new thread for my latest stuff. I've posted my first Bf109E-4's today. There's four of them and all four depicts Helmut Wicks aircraft and the way the markings evolved during the autumn of 1940.

First there's the "Yellow 2" version from Septbember 5:th, 1940:



On September 28:th Wick had been promoted to Gruppenkommandeur and a Yellow cowling and spinner had been added. The aircraft also wore yellow wingtips and off course the double chevron of a Gruppenkommandeur.



About a week later the rudder had got some yellow paint and the yellow wingtips were gone without a trace, very strange but the photos confirms this... The spinner backplate had been painted white as well.



On November 10:th Wick was the Geschwaderkommodore of JG2 and had had the markings changed to reflect that. After a couple of days a Geschwaderkommodore the groundcrew had repainted the rudder with a more clean and organized "scoreboard"




That's it for now! There's more coming!

Beautiful work, as always! Interesting to see how the paintwork evolved for Helmut Wick as the B0B progressed. I wonder if the yellow wingtips were felt to add too easy an aiming point for RAF fighters.
