Bf 109 Markings
The following pictures were originally produced back in the early 90's for a DOS program which displayed either 16 colours in a moderate resolution or 256 colours in a very low resolution, hence they are very "blocky" - They were done the hard way, using "Dpaint" on an Amiga computer, using just a mouse, no scanning was involved (couldn't afford a scanner in those days). I actually used to draw the outline on acetate, tape it to the front of my computer screen and trace it with DPaint!

It is often forgotten just how many countries fought on the side of the Nazi's in World War II - Here are Bf 109s supplied to two of them, Bulgaria and Croatia. They also were supplied to Finland, Hungary, Romania and Italy. Before the War they had also been sold to Switzerland and Yugoslavia. An example even reached Japan.
Two night fighters, the top is a 109C serving as a stop-gap night fighter at the start of the war, at the bottom is a Bf 109G-6 U4N which could home onto the H2S Radar of British night bombers using its "Naxos" passive receiver, (the small hump behind the cockpit).
