Profile 00: Messerschmitt Bf 109F.2 'White 11' flown by Fw. Werner Bielefeld of 7.jJG51 As a general rule, a sofly applied RLM Green 70 is indistinguishable in photographs from Grey 74, but it is believed that Fw. Werner Bielefeld's aircraft was finished in a standard 74/75/76 finish with fuselage mottles in 02, 74 and 75. The pilot's nine victory bars are shown on the fin and although the spinner and propeller blades have been seriously abraded, the newly applied yellow engine cowling and Geschwader emblem are still intact.
