National Air and Space Museum Me 163B (191301)

Great detail shot of the area that has seen so many markings. The last four of the Werknummer (1301) can be seen peeking through the paint in black. Then there is the remains of the large '5' of the 'FE500' painted on next. Note the relief of the lower part of the '5'. The next and last code applied was T-2-500 is a much smaller font. Only the '2' and last '0' can be seen. Note that the '0' looks to be brushpainted; its shape is not perfect.
