Luftwaffe original camouflage diagrams archive

Sichtschutzanstrich: that is how Luftwaffe camouflage diagrams were called at the time. This archive has been created to analize the real historical documents concerning these paintings. No reproductions, no fake documents: only the original mimetic diagrams of WWII German Airforce.

A regularly updated archive: last updated on 12th September 2023

This archive is meant to be a point of reference for Luftwaffe enthusiasts, researchers and modelers. It is a unique collection, which target consists in creating a complete set of diagrams, documents and directives that could help to better understand the application methods and the colours of Luftwaffe camouflage systems.

Collected data are regularly updated. If you are interested, it is suggested to have a look at this page from time to time: you colud find something new!
