Purchased one pack each of 1/300 scale manned V-1 and Ohka rockets from MSD,waiting for them to arrive.
Looking for suggestions+pics of color schemes for each.
Will be using Vallejo and Testors acrylics for these.
Any help is appreciated.

Hanna Reitsch was one of the test pilots

Several postings on provide some insight into the colours applied to the Ohka. The metal clad fuselage was a shade of greenish-gray whereas the fabric covered tail and wings were either a robin-egg blue or left in an aluminum paint. The variation between these last two colours probably depended on the sub-contractor for these components.

Thanks everyone for the great suggestions of where to look.

From the pictures Ryan provided, it appears that they were the same color as early war fighters – a light sandy green or a very light olive (presumably what the one note refers to as pea green).
