RLM is the abreviation of Reichluftministerium, the German Air Ministry and in charge of all things aviation during WWII. The prefice RLM is equivalent to FS with US colour codes.

Superb as usual.
I Have question, Peter but on something slightly different. Do you have any thoughts on the likely camouflage that could have been used if the Germans had managed to carry out their planned attack on the US continent? I'm thinking more about the "fighter escort", cos my plan, if feasable, is to complete my Ta 183 as just this What do you think? I'm planning on adding the kit drop tank and replacing 2 of the missiles with 2 more? I would really like to do a spectacular camouflage pattern :-)

Model Master and Gunze paints are available in RLM shades. Just check the label!

I'm in the middle of doing bombers (part 5) and will be doing a few long range camo schemes with this in mind.
High altitude over mostly water....
I'm also doing a Fighters revisited set too.

Cheers
