Hi Misos,
I see, it would be good to know if they made researches and what they found.
Are known FS matches for the rudder?

Hi Massimo,

I did not find any info about some deep research. IMHO they used let's say educated guess based on the info they had that time. Note they even did not use "official" names of that colors. And they use incorrect camouflage scheme based on the profile published in L+K (posted at the very first post of this thread), not according to the photos. Basicaly the same approach like all others.

The buildings of the original paint producer together with their archive burnt out after bomb raid in 1945, no info will come from that source.

I would use what I already described in my Reply #12 on: 21 December 2017

Hi Massimo,
it looks very nice! I would consider following:
1. brown color a bit lighter, bw photos show lower contrast between brown and "dirty green" than your bw picture,
2. outline of the national insignias should be thinner an of the same blue color like blue part of insignia. It was may be painted in the thicker layer with a thin brush, similarly to sometime "darker" red outline of the VVS red stars after summer 1943,
3. AFAIK roof window between cockpit and nose gunner was clear, so it should look more like window over rear gunner position (very nice clear & glossy). Window in your picture is too milky/foggy. But may be I am wrong.


And then, if you do not mind, I would post it at Czech modelforum to see reactions & comments.
Regards,

Hi Misos,
I forgot to say, the drawing is of Tapani. I published it for my choice, but it isn't yet finished.

Hi Massimo,
I thought it is still work in progress and that is why you asked questions, it is easier to correct thing in this stage. I wanted to posted it now because my experience is that people much more likely react on pictures than answer to werbal questions.
