HTK-AS15 Swiss Air Force Paint Set (WW2 Period)
Standard colours of Swiss AF planes in 1930s-40s
Muster 38 ("pattern 38") camouflage scheme was developed by Swiss AF as a response to growing political tension in Europe in late 1930s and was officially introduced in May 1938. This colourful pattern was aimed at replacing overall aluminium / silver liveries of majority of Swiss military aircraft.
With delivery of first BF-109s in early 1939 a German-origin scheme of RLM 70/71/65 (later optimized by Swiss AF towards RLM 70/65) was officially adopted and (while regarded efficient) it was subsequently copied to other types of Swiss AF aircraft, including D 3800s, D3801s and EKW C-3603s.
