This group all represented captured fighters(ish). From very early until shortly after the War.
These were all fairly simple builds, only the Do 335 got a little complicated, but that was mainly due to a more involved finish (natural metal AND translucent paint covering previous markings).
I currently have enough captured aircraft I’d like to do that I can revisit this theme one more time. But it will be a while before I get back to it.
I’ll build a couple of tanks this summer before I return with a new theme.

Your ‘captured’ collection also makes a good quiz subject: Identify the aircraft in their ‘captured’ markings and camo.

That would be a fun quiz!
I think the Bf 109 and A6M are particularly disorienting, they just look wrong.
I agree, it’s one of the basics of camouflage to not only conceal but to disorient the viewer. In addition to the above, the large national markings, squadron insignia, and tactical marks minimize the purpose and effectiveness of camouflage mute.
It’s a terrific collection Dave!
Thank you much! It was fun to do.
