    I imagine that paints you need would be dependent on which Jagdgeschwader you build the Dora as. Varying units had various different camouflage displayed. See if you can find a few profiles of Doras used in "Unternehmen Bodenplatte" for example.

    I'm sure that Wurger will have a few profiles and pictures that he'll post when he goes online later.

    Early Dora's carried a 75/83/76 scheme...this evolved into 82/83/76 or 81/82/76 and some other variations later in the war as conditions changed....better to stick to the 3 basic schemes than get complicated with variation!

    To keep it simple for you Keith 75 = a Medium Grey, 76 = Light Blue/Grey, 82 = Bright Medium Green and 83 = Dark Green.


    Once you select a subject it will get easier, only 'Blue 15' with it's black bordered red Gruppe bar is inaccurate of those supplied in the kit.

    Once you set up a thread and decide then we can get things happening.
