Thanks Greg!  Stukas in the Mediterranean theater of war were often oversorayed with RLM 79 sand yellow to camouflage their units. 

 

You're welcome.

And I didn't know that, now that I know what I'm looking for, I see the splinter pattern in between the RLM 79. That's actually very neat, and thanks for the info.

That's a knockout Stuka, Chad. Yes

I too wish I'd have found this sooner.

I'm a little turned around......what happened to the splinter pattern?

Wow, backdrop makes a huge difference!  Shows a lot about the camera I suppose.  Looking really good.

Thanks,

Thank you both for your kind words. However, I feel like I need to repost another image showing the post shade work against a green backdrop so it doesn’t wash out the colors. Since the primary colors of the aircraft are green, I feel like the blue backdrop completely washed out the tones! Tongue Tied  So here’s another picture against a green backdrop which more clearly defines the post shading.
