    Werknummer 2888

    I received another piece of Luftwaffe metal from Russia yesterday and I have a question on werknummers

    It is scratched and stamped with 2888 plus L for Links.

    It is painted in RLM76.

    Were werknummer sequential within each aircraft designation ?

    Does it then follow that an aircraft with 2888 must only be from a production aircraft of which there were > 2888 manufactured ?

    This would then limit this part to being from the set of 109,190,110,52,111,88,87 and Arado 96 ? Then further limited by use of RLM 76 ?

    The aluminium is also manufacturer marked 33551

    Thank you for some expert guidance.
    Kind Regards,

    Brian

    Dave thank you - I would have had plenty of luck on the LEMB but it died a few years back.
    Kind Regards,

    Werknummers were issued in batches but are not indicators of numbers of any particular type built. Me 262s for example had 6 figure werknummers but production didn’t run to 100000!

    One of the LEMB staff members started up a successor to the LEMB forum. It is called “Luftwaffe Research Group”:

    Thanks to all.

    I have been cross checking the Ju87,Ju88 and Ju188 production lists and werknummers and can see that there is no overlap and that the numbers were assigned in batches - thank you.

    I will rejoin the Luftwaffe Research Group.
