Welcome to my Profile Paintshop! I've created this blog as a forum to display some of my aircraft profiles. I've been doing a lot of work on the Messerschmitt Bf109 but hopefully I'll have the time for some variation in the future!

JG3 Bf109G-6s in Normandie with green tailbands
A JG3 shield combined with a green fuselageband seems like a strange combination! A B&W photograph of this aircraft shows the dark tailband to good effect and intelligence reports on captured enemy aircraft in Normandy shows that several aircraft were found wearing the JG3 shield and a green fuselageband.
The most likely explantion would seem to be that JG27 aircraft were transferred to other units in Normandie and given the hectic and chaotic situation, new individual markings were added while the bands remained in place.
