    Busting up the other thread and starting this one to the finish.This did not take me long at all 1/2hr maybe.I laid the 75 on top of 76 and it was a bit stong so went back again with some 76 in a mist,toned it down quite a bit.Upon reading the profiles there is suppose to be some 74 in there also"oh Gawd" I might fix it.By the time you add the yelloespinner/black back plate,yellow undercowl and rudder with blue band should look pretty neet.

    Hey Dan,another favor move it to the Start to finish builds.Thks kevin

    Very nice Kevin. It's certainly going to look different and interesting in that colour scheme.

    With the bright sun washing out details...I would almost say that this aircraft has had a light mottle of RLM 76 Lt. Blue grey applied over the 74/75 camo?

    the pic presented is way too bright there should be a slight two-toned grey splotches over the standard RLM 76. Ungar and Schillings rigs are G-6's yellow 6 and yellow 1 respectively

    remember these came about in late 1943 through very early spring 44 as a high altitude alternative some with 2cm weapons as gunboats and then they were sometimes removed if the staffeln were tasked with intercepting Allied fighters
