Photo 01: A clear photograph of two Bf109E-1s of I/JG1 (formerly I./JG131) which appear to be finished in a single upper surface color. No evidence of a splinter pattern can be determined. Considering the wide variety of camouflage patterns applied to the Bf 109 and the fact that there were many different factories and sub-contractors manufacturing the type it is not beyond the possibility that one or two batches were produced in the one overall upper camouflage color. It is also unlikely that completion would have been stopped because of a shortage of a specific camouflage color.
