    I'm getting a bit confused by what this paint scheme should be.

    According to the instructions I should use H75 for the entire top and H65 for the entire bottom, however I cannot find any pictures to use as an example.

    Every Stuka I've found has a different color (light blue) bottom, and splinter top.

    I have easier access to Testors RLM paints.

    Thank you,

    Jon

    If it's in Europe, then the upper surface should be a splinter pattern of RLM70 and RLM 71, with the undersides in RLM65.
    You'll probably find the pattern shown in some of the Group Build threads, maybe the BoB GB, where Stukas have been entered.

    According to Ullmann's book, later production Stukas (D's actually) began to be turned out with a single top colour, probably RLM 71.

    Thanks guys!

    This is my first Stuka so I may opt for a single top pattern then get another kit.

    Thanks again,

    Jon
