German paras will happen. Just not quite yet. Other tasks are in front of them.
Hope that gives enough paint time?  What is the painting schedule?
Let me know :)

Thank you for the confirmation, Martin.

Painting schedule - as soon as the figures are available  😄.

It would be nice to be able to start sometime in April, but we may all have rather more time at home to paint if we're not allowed to go anywhere for our summer hols...

I would be happy if the new Paras arrived in July, leaves August to paint them ready for their assault in September

There's a Crete scheme one here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234985613-dfs-230-glider-crete-1941/ with light upper surfaces, for later schemes there's these: https://www.emodels.co.uk/rs-models-1-72-dfs-230-unternehemen-rosselsprung-92187-plastic-model-kit.html

I hope these are help.

Regards,

That's a good site, Martin - this additional page might well be handy:

And another..

http://www.fiddlersgreen.net/models/aircraft/DFS-230-glider.html

It seems as you moved from 1940 into 41...on some gliders the blue sides were also speckled with the dark green as well. In most of my books it also seems to not be all of them, prob more of an individual unit approach.

Thanks guys, I found some of those sites but a mash of all colours with no definitive scheme.
Simon I have two for your game and intend to a dark green upper with light blue sides and under wings., unless you want other colours

Thanks Stewart - you now know at least as much as I do about their colours - sounds great!
