        don't know why that would be important.

        Is is a known illegal site or somethin' ?

            Pretty sure it has something to do with the German Navy...from World War I.

            Sad thing is I lived in Germany for nearly four years, took some German, and pretty much all I can do is read German road signs.

                well honestly I haven't looked much at it, but roughly translated, Farbtonubersicht means shade or hue overview. In other words, judging by that title and the fact that there are a bunch of colors, I'd say these are shades of color used in the German Navy. For what, though, I'm not sure.

                  I'm more interested in number 2 and 11. I have never seen a German ship painted in that shade of gray.

                  And I am not too sure what the green is for?

                  I know the Germans did paint their turrets for identification reasons, but have only came across a bright red/orange, Yellow, dark gray. Don't think they have ever painted a turret green, at least to my knowledge.

                    As the navy introduced airplanes, they often painted their aircraft green. I know for a fact that the Bismarck's fighters for example, were forest green.

                      Could likely be for non-combat ships perhaps? I am a big war buff, but sadly German military is not my expertise.

                        This is WWI period. German field manual at the time for naval aircraft observation did not have required colors, though most were shaded of blue, gray, or sand/tan.

                        As for the Bismarcks airplane, depends which year.

                        The above picture is for German ships only and during the Battle of Jutland and prior. All aircraft under Admiral Scheer's force was to the North of his fleet so no planes on board nor was there a heavy use of German planes in the battle unlike the British.

                          2. Accent dark gray for inside and outside

                          11. watercolour green, chrome green. deckfarbe is roughly watercolour apparently, had to look that one up.

                          I think Ben Tate will be the best back taken in the 2010 draft. (5/3/10)

                            Does the little title bar above it say specifically for what? funnels? merchant ships?

                              The title of the entire thing is "Shade survey for coats of paint for the Navy"

                              The left title is "Navy craft of Wilhelmshaven" (a town that has a big port and Naval museum) and Bauwerft III is "Shipyard III"

                              I think the right title says "Material Sheet", but just as a cataloging title.

                              Sadly I don't think this is much use without the catalog numbers of the corresponding ships.
