Joachim Müncheberg was feared by his enemies cause he was uncompromising in the air, but he was also wellknown by his fainess in aireal dogfights. All the time he has denied shooting enemy pilots at parachutes. He had a very self-confident manner which earned him some trouble with the high command of german Airforce.

The „White 12“ of Oblt. J.Müncheberg was painted in the colour sheme RLM 02/65/71 (light blue/gray green/black green) usually in service at the beginning of 1941. This was the standard camouflage sheme of german fighter wings in the French Campaign and during the Battle of Britain. My researches throughout several colour conversion tables brought me in the end to the following colours:
Revell Matt 45 (RLM-02)
Revell Matt 55 (RLM-65)
Humbrol Matt 91 (RLM-71)

Possibly not absolute historical correct but the exact colour tones you cannot determine anymore.
