I'd like to introduce my latest creation, a model made ​​for a friend. It is made ​​almost entirely out of the box, with few exceptions (modified engines, other exhausts). Completly riveted. I used masks and a decal for badge registration group. The aircraft was flown by Ion Profir. Ion Profir was, perhaps, the best romanian bomber pilot, in WW2. He flew a He-111 H3 from the first to the last day of the war. He took part in the Axis campains at Basarabia, Odessa and most of all, Stalingrad. He used a new bomber plane fighting technique, turning his heavy He-111 toward the fighters that attached him, and so making them disengage the fight in order to avoid collision.
After the war he managed to escape from comunist Romania, with a stolen plane to Turkey. He died in Paris, sad as he saw the world not paying him the respect he deserved.

Indeed a beautiful work. Congratulations!

Having studied in depth the early RLM colours, including the RLM 61/62/65/65 combination (for the book on Hungarian Fighter Colours), I can state that the RLM 61 (Dark Brown) was not reddish, but rather "chocolaty", and RLM 62 (Dark Green) was a bit darker than I see on my screen. What source did you use for the shades you used?
Identifying the precise shades is a tricky business, I know very well, I learned it the "hard way".

Another question is the upper camouflage scheme. Based on the very few photos I saw the scheme was much more splinter type. Which photo(s) did you use for your scheme?

Let me emphasise that the only reason why I am asking these is to further my knowledge, and not to detract anything from the quality of your beautifully done model.

Thank you.

Gen. Dénes
