BF109E Wheel well canvas colours

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the correct colour for the canvas covering the inside of a BF 109E wheel well. Previous threads have suggested faded blues to olive greens. I'm currently building Eduards 1/32 BF109 E-4 profipack. The instructions suggest black for the well walls, (I assume they mean the canvas) and aluminum for the roof of the wheel bay. Any 109 experts out there that can clarify for me. Thanks in advance

l always go for either Tamyia XF-55 buff if a bit newer aircraft or go with a tan colour. they seem perfectly acceptable to me anyways

I have seen them described as green, dark blue, dark gray, and black.

 

Yep, could be any of the above.

Probably changed over time.

Sneaking hunch there was a range of colors used. Whatever was close enough: tan or natural canvas, RLM02, olive, green, etc. Doubt they cared much as long as they came fast. That isn't based on solid research, just from typical reading of wartime production of materials.
