This is the second sheet of 111's and covers three different aircraft.

The first is an He-111H-6 from stab/KG 53 in France during the Battle of Britain. This one is in standard RLM 70/71/65 colors and has large white wing and tail markings. Now when I did my 111 about 7 years ago (in fact, these exact markings using a Three Guys sheet), the sheet I used showed these markings on both upper wings as does this one. However, after plying through many volumes on the 111, I never found a single photo of planes with these markings on BOTH wings so ended up removing one of them. Just thought you'd like to know.

Next is a desert 111H-6 from StG 3. It is in RLM 79 over RLM 78 with white wing tip and fuselage band typical for the Mediterranean theater.

Finally an Eastern Front 111H-4 from 8./KG 54. It is also in the standard RLM 70/71/65 scheme with previous codes overpainted in grey, though no color is given for this shade. As with the other 111s, you will need to do some changes to the only kit around, specifically you'll need collector exhaust. These can be obtained from Koster in one of their He-111 update sets.
