Response to Just realize you may be comparing two unrelated aircraft

Steven, the noting on the Eagle Editions instructions about "possibly RLM 83 Dark Green" for Chevron Triangle Green 1 is what had me confused from the get-go. I acquired the Smithsonian title on the NASM's Fw-190F anticipating some clarification. I've seen up close the NASM's Fw at Chantilly, VA and from what I saw believed it to be sporting close to RLM 83 at the time. The Smithsonian book mentions the use of RLM 70 which could be in error, but who knows? Considering the state of affairs with the paint situation in Germany in late 1944, RLM 70 could have been used, but then...

My gut feeling is I'm going to stick with RLM 83. And, one fellow Hyperscaler aptly put it, it will be up to someone challenging the chosen scheme to prove me wrong.
