I am painting up a Stuka to support my FoW DAK and I have used Vallejo 876 Brown Sand as this is recommended as the equivalent to RLM79, but it just looks wrong, even with a bit of lightening.

What Vallejo colours do others use for RLM79, and what about RLM78 for the underside?

And if I do a second Stuka for my Italians, would that be in Luftwaffe colours or Italian colours. Anyone point me to some pictures, my search-fu has failed me on this.

Your google-fu is weak indeed ….

Rearching for 'regia aeronautica stuka' or 'italian stuka' images brings up a few images all of which appear to be mainly green.

Wings Palette is a easy starting point.

My google-fu is weak. But I didn't think of searching for regio aeronautica, which has thrown up lots of results! Doh!

Most colour images for the Stuka are of plastic models. Contemporary images tend to be in B/W

Thanks the joker, great articles,but now back to my primary query, what vallejo paint for the desert luftwaffe stuka?

There is a Stuka in the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago that was captured in North Africa
