I'm a bit confused/unsure about the topside crosses.

I've never seen such big ones on a STUKA. The early style (1939) were even smaller than the ones used during the BoB.

That's what the kit came with.

Anyway here's today's advance.

A few more finishing details, and it could be wrapped up by Christmas.
