  1. Hi, leaving behind that you very realistically painted a photo, painting of planes is absolutely wrong. In the spring of 1945 green aircrafts should not exist. The main type of camouflage is gray-gray for all types of aircraft, with a small presence of aircraft painted in tricolor green-black-coffee.
