Hi all,

I only found a photo of the plane, therefore I need your help to establish the correct colours, scheme and version of the plane:

Airplane Model: Fieseler Fi-156 - C3
Giallo Mimetico 3 - FS 33343 - Gunze H34
Verde Mimetico 3 - FS 34102 - Gunze H 303
Marrone mimetico 2 - FS 30109 - Gunze H33
Wings Tips: White
Interiors: RLM 02

Camo Type: C1: Image

Thanks in advance for your tips :-D

Rodolfo,
Here's some information that may help you from Maurizio Di Terlizzi's book: Fieseler Fi-156 Storch in Italian Service IBN Editore. There's a profile from Angelo Brioschi regarding the subject MM. 56631, note that profile is missing the AS white wing tips, Brioschi was using the photo on p.63 - also note the splotches are considerably smaller in the drawing than the photo in your post (an early photo of MM. 56631). The colors in the profile are the late type Serie Mimetica colors (darker): MM2, VM2 over GM3 and Grigio Mimetico undersides with RLM 02 interiors as you stated (see the pages below for interior details and colors such as the cockpit, access hatches, engine areas etc - expand the images in your browser or download the images from here).

Your Fieseler Fi 156 Stork looks amazing!
The detail and colors are great.
I always liked this aircraft and I think that it looks much better in RA livery than Luftwaffe!!
