    I have two conflicting photos of the stuka J9+LL. One picture has a yellow L on the yellow band, and the other has a blue one. Which is correct? Or are they both correct just dependant on where they were located at the time? Does anyone have a bigger picture of the unit symbol and the word that is on the front?

    "Yellow L on a yellow band" sounds odd though yellow would normally be the squadron colour for the 3 staffel of I Gruppe. Would help if you cold post the pics.

    OTHER EDIT. Andy, there's another profile J9+AL...yellow A outlined in black on the yellow band, same time frame as the two above.

    I could believe the yelow L outlined in black.

    Geo, I think those profiles came from Wings Pallette which you need to take with a BIG grain of salt.

    i believe it was a L outlined in black. Granted that the profiles posted above need to be taken with a grain of salt, are both correct or are neither right?

    Not sure about the green letter as this colour was normally reserved for Stab aircraft. However, there were exceptions.

    These guys have it as Yellow L with black outline. I can't vouch for the accuracy though. Dang why didn't they have toys like that when I was growing up. The yellow makes sense though as the Yellow was correct for the 3rd Staffel (L) individual aircraft letter.

    A good pic of the real aircraft would readily reveal the presence of a black outlined letter on the yellow theater band. If the L looks solid, then we have a different issue.

    I would expect a good photo to be in existence, seeing as this particular scheme seems to have been extensively profiled and used as a basis for toys and RC planes. It's just finding it.

    Good one Clinton. Yellow L with black outline gets my vote.
