    Not bad at all - grass is a bit over scale though!
    BTW, what colour scheme/theatre is that?

    Good job.. some very realistic details, the nacelles and exhaust stacks. Curious, what is the color scheme?

    Tried to copy (from B&W) from the Kampfgeschwader 51 Eastern front 42-44.

    By crikey - yep it's on backward -- damn it - I throw decals away now and will have to respray the whole tail - perhaps I will show it from the port side only (LOL):oops:

    Yes it is huge - has to hang from roof again - but it looks sh*&t hot from there.:twisted:

    I think the He-111H-6 wore the standard RLM70/71 camo scheme on tops with white or rlm76 smudges there. The "F" letter seems to be of red or light green rather, yellow band on the rear fuselage and undersides of wing tips. The noses of spinners green.Unless it is a different bomber.

    Wurger - this is gold thank you.

    I find it awkward getting photographic details via the web about German aircraft here - perhaps various filters make it that way.

    Would've been handy - yes definately need to revisit some of the yellow tips and spinners.

    Thanks

    You'r welcome.

    Additionally... these smudges seem to be applied with a removable paint and might have been remnants of the winter camo done with the white paint usually.

    Nice build. Hope the wing tips and spinners work out ok. (Always a bit of trepidation when going back once completed, I find).

    Correct.
    In the first winter on the Eastern Front (41/42) there was no standard winter camouflage scheme. The RLM/Luftwaffe were caught on the hop as they didn't expect or plan to fight through that winter. This resulted in locally applied winter schemes being applied over the standard green,RLM 70/71,splinter scheme. Units applied white blotches,squiggles,solid coats along with just about every conceivable variation inbetween.
    By the next winter standard solid white schemes were officially designated and applied at the point of manufacturer or maintenance and repair facilities. Directions of what (white aircraft paint 7126.21) was to be used and how it was to be applied were given in "Luftwaffe Directive Sheet 43" issued on 4 October 1943.
    Cheers

    Impressive work, nicely finished, and well photographed, especially on the light sandy gravelly base in the later photos.
