Agreed.  Thanks for sharing this.   I like the soft edge mottling in the period photos or the Lux picture in particular. You never see this on remanufactured Luftwaffe birds these days.  

yes mate,  the mottling was  applied quite fast and superficial and with a gesture movement,  as you said modern reproductions fail on this, using masks or oversaturating the paint over the mottling.

cheers

The anti fungal coating could be bright yellow as well depending on the batch. As its hue code was 99, it could be any color

Thanks Vincent, I didn't know it was an antifungal, I guess it is the same type like the yellow/green one used in the radio wood panel as well.

I  did a dissection  of a paint piece which fleaked apart, I used a scalp to go through the different layers starting from the bottom one, what I found was:

the first layer on to the wood was the green antifungal,  as I continued scrapping  a thin metallic layer appeared, I have no clue what it was but was very supercicial, then a grey layer shown, very thick, it remind me of squadron putty texture, there was a lot of it, next another thin layer of the metallic paint, this was the last before the superficial paint layer, at this point it was so thin that it started to break which also demonstrates that the top coat color paint was super thin itself.

cheers

So,  these relics are prove  of my suspicions about the RLM 74 color (called Dark grey and also Grey Green)  being on the dark blue side  with almost nothing of green from what paint and model makers companies  are normally rendering, more and more relics are coming to the surface everyday that show this, these are some examples as well , cheers

It would take me literally five seconds in Photoshop to prove your suspicion wrong, and that the VOLUMES of factual evidence on the color of RLM 74 being a grey green and not in any way blue are in fact correct.  Those photos are all over the map in terms of color.
