The swastikas on the fore and aft decks were canvassed over to prevent enemy aircraft (us) identifying the Bismark. That would help to protet the paintwork for a while as well.

I am sure there are lots of instances where the paintwork has survived for many years on submerged aircraft wreckage Chris. The environment and location will obviously play  a major part in either preserving wreckage or, degrading it and, it's only my own opinion Chris but I don't think being stuck onto the side of a Pacific seamount does much preserving. Thanks for the Bismark reminder Chris, very good images of a remarkably well preserved wreck.

Yet another long shot but, take a look at the first image with the arrow pointing to the antenna and, it's location in relation to the cockpit windows.
Now, in the second image it would be nice if there was any sort of oddities/unusual/strange etc.... in that exact same area, in relation to the cockpit windows...

Not entirely sure yet as to what is going on here. The wire/cable goes in one side and out the other in the first image. In the second image follow the wire/cable route as it enters the whatever it is, it's the darker bit you need to look at. I'll post some more colour images in a minute, very odd.

Here's some more... My initial thought is that this is the point where the one wire/cable becomes two by clever use of whatever this is.

An alternative to the blister turret infill theory. The bathtub turret theory, used on B17's to D model, then replaced with ball turret.

That is an elevator counterbalance weight and no, not all airplanes had external ones. They were more common in the 1930s and early 1940s.
