Great find, Richard... did you note the shine on 6-93?

Response to Condor Legion 109 photos on ebay

Not sure I've seen such evidence of a polished-out SCW 109 like that before... that's a great find.

As an aside, this gives me a thought about why some Spanish 109s look darker than others- polishing out the paint will darken it, witness the P-47s of the 56th FG for instance. I have said for ages now that there's no way those things can be 62 green because the contrast between the black and the base color is too strong, but have seen numerous instances of ones which look slightly darker than what we'd expect from 63 in the field... this looks like pretty convincing evidence of why that might be. It's not absolute of course, and I'm sure Modeldad will be along any moment to take the opposing view, as he so enjoys doing (I could say the sky is blue, and he'd argue about it), but it's definitely a useful and interesting clue to add to our knowledge base on Spanish Messerschmitts.
