RLM 81b Dunkelgrün

A high-quality semi-gloss Luftwaffe late-WW2 dark khaki green acrylic or enamel paint for scale models and historical miniatures.

RLM 81b Dark Green Color Guide:

  • RLM 81 first surfaced in the meticulous directives of GL/C-E 10 Nr.10585/43 (IVE) Az.82b 10 on July 21, 1944. However, its official adoption came later, in August 1944, as documented in Sammelmitteilung Nr. 1.
  • By 1944, Luftwaffe bomber aircraft underwent a strategic shift in their camouflage scheme. The traditional RLM 70/ RLM 71 green gave way to the distinctive RLM 81 Dunkelgrün which should replace the darker color RLM 70, as detailed in Sammelmitteilung Nr. 1.
  • Beginning in late 1944, the RLM 81 Dunkelgrün alongside the RLM 82 Hellgrün was also used to camouflage Luftwaffe fighters.
  • Alongside the dark green hue (RLM 81b Dunkelgrün), there was also a darker version known as RLM 81a Braunviolett.
