You have all helped out in the past for which I am grateful.
Now does anyone know much about color schemes for Hannover
CL IIIs? They served until the end of the war and I assume
that most if not all had camo wings but what about the fuselage? I have photos that are of no help. Can you help?

Most Hannovers had the fuselage, vertical stabilizer, lower horizontal stabilizer, and wing center section (all plywood covered) painted with a lozenge pattern mimicking the printed fabric. The fuselage was usually oversprayed with what is thought to be a very dark blue that obscures most of the pattern. (Seems like a lot of trouble!)
My source is the Windsock Datafile published some years back.

I believe the Datafile to which Tom refers was recently in reprint and may still be available from Windsock or your usual supplier..I have a copy and will be happy to e-mail the relevant couple of pages if needed
