Some pretty uninteresting schemes but it would be good to see how FM handle weathered snow

Interesting on the tail is the Command Flag for a Wehrmacht Army or Army Group Commander.

Any history with this one??

It is a rather intriguing scheme.

Operation Barbarossa started on June. Why is the model in winter camouflage?

Operation Barbarossa did start in June but obviously it lasted a lot longer than expected once the Red Army proved much more capable than Nazi ideology had allowed - actually lasted 5 months taking it into December. So my guess would be it was a temporary job applied in the theatre of operations as winter descended, something they hadn't expected to happen before taking Moscow. The aircraft was likely involved on the Eastern Front for much longer after Barbarossa too with resources being scarce.

horrible canopy frame puts me right off this mould, despite some decent schemes- i reckon corgi or the oxford 'blue-box' range would've done a much better job of the storch.

Don't you guys find those green "stripes" to be rather uniform and evenly spaced? Would real world air flow wear-off effects really look like that?

It might.

Unless someone has photos of the upper wing surface of a Storch with worn white wash - it's anyone's guess.

Personally, I think the weathering looks great and I applaud Falcon for attempting this on a mass produced model.

Fair enough, Dan. Below are pictures of two Fieseler 156s in winterized condition. As you can see, the one on the bottom has less wear-off, but it is in highly irregular patterns and the show through is not very evident in the tail area. The upper picture shows a plane with more wear-off. On the left wing there seem to be more stripes----in the Falcon vein, but with more closely bunched lines and less even streaks. On the other wing, the pattern is far less regular than on the Falcon model.
