    Good morning (in UK) to all!
    Can anyone tell me if they know of a source for decals for Klaus Scheneider's Fw190A-8/R2 'Red 1' - Rauhbautz - in 48th. scale?
    I'd like to build his 'plane but my searches have all come up zero.
    warm regards,
    weinace:p

    As memory serves the decals were on one of the AeroMaster AMD48-231,AMD48-232,AMD48-233 decal sheets

    If I remember correctly, 'Rauhbautz' should be in Red...I'm sure Erich confirmed this....it most certainly is Red in the profile from the JG300 book.

    Comparing to other Sturmbock profiles of 5./JG300 it appears that it should have been of red colour.

    I remember Erich saying it should be red - someone built the italeri 1/72 kit I think?

    yes the name is in red possibly with yellow outline I have to dig that out though. spinner would be black with white spiral, depending on which Raubautz he flew the undercowling may or may not be yellow

    a couple of pics show what appears to be a darker under-cowling though it should be yellow and not red. also note the spinner which appears to be white with a red or black stripe but may in fact just be the overall motion giving spurious detailing ........

    looking through the Crandall's fantastic 2 volumes on JG 300 it would appear from profile evidence that yes the lettering is in red outlined with Black used for shading, no yellow.

    the pic put up shows a Red 1 but no Panzerplatten on this machine

    That's true .I think it's caused by misreading of the colour because of the lack of covering a kind of negatives.
