    Factory camouflaged RLM 79 desert yellow He-111s?

    Most luftwaffe aircraft that entered the mto theater arrived in European colours and were repainted using Italian colours. The rlm 78,79,80 colours were not readily available in theater until the arrival of the bf 109 f-4/g-2 This is what Micheal Ullman's says in his Luftwaffe colours book

  8. Excellent work. Nick
  9. Thanks Dennis,thanks Greg, this model naily did not get finished, had to partly respray it as was going to be in different markings and wasn't happy with the result, also some of the conopie masks were an to long and marked the Johnson, when removing them removed some of the conopie frames.was going to replace the rear sections of the canopie but would probably be worse. So hand paint them and reapply the Johnsons. Just noticed I have missed some of the frames when I hand painted them.haven't had a build like this one for a while, all my fault thou. Building two models at the same never goes well for me.
