The Entries


"Arf! Arf! Painting looks fun, maybe I could help!"

 

"Fritz, where exactly did you learn to paint a Balkencross?"

 

German with hands in pocket to cigarette smoking Komrade: "If you ask me,

whoever picks these new camouflage colours is colour-blind!"

 

Lt. Gelb was known to be such a coward and had flown away from battle so often that

his ground crew appropriately re-decorated his Fokker.

 

 "Heinrich, ever since you brought that funny smelling tobacco to the ground crew the planes

have become much more colorful"

 

"It's called "Blizen Yellow"; it's from the Humbrol "Heritage" range I believe"

 

"Yes, the yellow does match the piping on his tunic but I think "Otto und Heidi" painted on

his cockpit windscreen is a bit OTT!"

 

Mostly forgotten by history "The Yellow Viscount" was no less brave or successful than

his famous squadron mate

 

"Just be thankfull you're not in the French Air Corps. All these planes are painted

by using millions of tiny dots!"

 

"Hope that's quick drying paint.......  We go on patrol in twenty minutes!"

 

"Franz....  Think anyone will notice the bullseye we painted?"

 

"Lets see if he comes home to boast next time about his target practice.... "

 

"Target practice will have a whole new meaning tomorrow...."

 

"Hey Otto, get rid of that butt. We have more planes to paint red before the queen

come around yelling "Off with our heads!"

 

"I don't care if the plane does belong to Oberleutnant Goering, I told them painting

it pink was a silly idea."

 

"Is there a reason why we are putting all these targets on them?"

 

"You just couldn't do it like the rest of us."

 

"I don't know about you but the YELLOW BARON just doesn't sound as impressive"

 

"Who's going to tell them? The orders clearly state "any colour except yellow"".

 

"Hmm, don't remember that dog having a yellow chin"

 

"Hans, has anyone told the colour-blind guy that's not red paint he is using"

 

"Do you think we were wrong to glue Wolfgang's hand to the tail of the

Baron's plane."

 

"Watch these guys move when I dump my cigarette butt into this can of paint thinners!"

 

"Hey Fritz, do you think they found out what we did to that yellow one yet?"

 

"While the Red baron had chosen his Iron Cross style, the yellow Baron couldn't make up his

mind. So with his decision still up in the air, the Yellow Baron's crew decided to wing it in plane view."

"In one of their more lighter moments the German ground crew gets a kick at how Hans and

his perfectionist ways can even mesmerize the Colonel's dog."

 

"The famous German film director, Ludwig Berger, lines up his shot for the next scene."

 

"Jah, ein grober Dummkopf! Danke Herr Twain"

 

Fritz : "I sure am glad Meine Mutter read Tom Sawyer to me. Now we've got Schultz doing all

the painting instead of us!"

Adolf : "Jah, ein grober Dummkopf!"

 

"If this is Goring's plane use a fatter brush"

 

"If we keep using all these bright colours they are going to start calling this plquotace &;The

Flaming Circus""

 

1st Mechanic "This yellow one looks a lot like my mum's old plane"

2nd Mechanic " Well I can assure you THIS!! is not your mother's F.......r"

 

"In an effort to boost morale the Imperial German Army recruited artists to personalize

fighter aircraft. Art critics soon followed them into the ranks."

 

"When Fritz said he would rather watch paint dry, I thought he was joking!"

  

"I'm sure there is an easier way to catch the drips"

 

"I know yellow is meant to be a warm colour, but that is ridiculous......."

 

1st Mechanic "I swear that attention we give these fokkers you'd think they were our children"

2nd Mechanic "Well we are aeroplane mechanics"

1st Mechanic " Who's talking about Airplanes?? I'm talking about the pilots!"

 

"Disguised as a Doberman, Snoopy was able to infiltrate German lines and launch

a savage commando attack against the Red Baron's unsuspecting ground crew."

 

"My recruiter told me this uniform would get me all the tail I could handle."

 

"I suggested painting them all red but no one listens to me. I "JASTA" work here."

 

"Well only 192 left to redo now......"

 

"Uh, oh, Rivet Counter alert! Don't they realise #454/17 never carried the Maltese Cross!!"

 

"You Know Lother, I couldn't decide between Cornfield Yellow or Lemon Pie yellow.....

but decided to go for Yellow Ochre in the end.... it matches my scarf...."

 

"I'm sure glad I hid that can of pink."
