Bf109F-2 of Kurt Sochatzy, III./JG3

http://www.cptfarrels.com/blog/Bf109F_Sochatzy_JG3_1200.jpg
A Bf109F-2 flown by Kurt Sochatzy, the Staffelkapitän of 7./JG3 in the spring of 1941. The time frame makes it hard to be certain whether the aircraft was finished in the old 02/71 scheme or the newer 74/75 but the contrast between the colors as well as the traces of repainting makes me think 74/75.
