Ive sprayed the dunkelgrun part of the camo. For this i used Humbrol enamel 242. Ive noticed in steves photos of the real aircraft the forward fairing of the engine air filter is painted yellow. Airfix instructions show it as RLM 65 blue. So that will need correcting when ive done the rest of the paint scheme.

This is because the entire upper cowl came off in one piece and then the rear cowl also came off in one piece (to replace the ammunition boxes for example). With both off the front part of that air intake was left exposed and easily painted to match the front cowl. 


Here's an Emil with both cowlings removed so you can see what I mean.


Cheers

Ive had a go at the mottle tonight.Sprayed RLM02 first. Then did the dunkelgrun. I think the dunkelgrun mottle is a bit over scale. So i will go over it with RLM02 tomorrow.
