Hi all
For a change of scenery, I decided to pull out my DML kit of the 88mm FlaK 37 (#6287). As some of you may know, one has to choose early in the build which vehicle to build. So my question: how accurate is Dragon's info regarding the colour (Dunkel Grau) for a gun from Herman Goering Div in Sicily 1943? Some quick, fairly basic research tells me HG Div were in Sicily mid '43 till mid '44. Therefore would their equipment not be Dark Yellow base?

If the gun came from reserve stock- it is possible.
My country's Army received a delivery of grey Mercedes Benz 170VK's in winter 1944.They all came from reserve stock.
