This is my first post on this forum. I have been a collector of aviation relics for many Years but have only just started using forums to discuss my interests. I Just wondered if anybody had any ideas on the aircraft origin of these four panels I recently acquired from a collector in Germany. They came with no history but he seller believed they were from a night-fighter crash just outside of Berlin. They are large sections (approx. 1m square) so I was happy to take a gamble and add them to my collection.
I have matched up one of the flathead screw fixings to a panel I have from a 109 but the other riveting is new to me. All panels are of the same light olive green inside, with the outer panels seemingly very dark green. There are sections on the outer where the panel changes from dark green to bare aluminum from one panel to the next.
I can post closer pics of the riveting if it helps? The long strut is stamped "Berlin 3125.5" with a symbol that appears to be cross hammers. I have also found one inspection stamp K598, but that's about it.
It was my thought that they are wing or tail sections and have seen a similar riveting style on a JU88 wing section.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
