Luftwaffe Diorama 1/32 scale

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi !

 

Building a 1/32 scale Luftwaffe diorama with a large hanger.

I'm about to paint the hanger but need some colour references.
I can se in a lot of ww2 pictures the hangers and some service buildings är painted in camo patterns, but of course,  I can't se what colors.

Some help to get color reference would be great !
Any one got ideas ?

Luftwaffe hangar in northern Jylland / Denmark.

This  type of hangar was common in occupied europe.

 

Floors and foundation build by local contractors from german drawings.

 

The building came prefabricated from factory in germany.

 

 

Have fun.

 

Cheers

Common colors used on aerodrome structures appear to be the very similar to 81 Brown/Green, 82 Lt. Green on Luftwaffe aircraft with a different paint formulation, of course. I have a color photo of a building on a Luft airbase using close to those 3 shades.  Color is not perfect, but it gives one the idea.

Hey Bigs,

Good you tube vid on a abandon ww2 luft hangar

Abandon Hangar

That's a really interesting video, but the OP should beware!  That interior walls are covered in that "Russian blue/green color" and white.  Sure enough, the video description seems to indicate this hangar was somewhere in what became Soviet occupied territory after the War.

 

I.E., the hangar appears to have been "Sovietized".
