Greetings All;

I am trying to finish a model of a Do 217N-1 in 1/48 using the Koster conversion applied to the Pro Modeler kit.  I found some aftermarket decals (AIMSDecals 48D022) that has a suitable paint scheme.  The decal instruction refer to a photo in a book:  Nachtjager Vol. 1 (Williams, Classic Colours) page 73.  The Do 217N-1 is coded D5+SM.

Does anyone have a copy of this book?  If so, can you scan the image and e-mail it to me?  Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hello Mongo,

I scanned the image. I tried to e-mail it to you through the forum. Don't know if it was successful.

Who ever did the decals can't read, and the picture is of little value, small and dark.

It is captioned as an N-2 and belonged to 5./NJG 3. But the unit code is not visible, only the aircraft letter, and SM may be FM.

Do 217N-1 D5+SM.JPG This is the diagram from the decal sheet instructions.  I'm going to have to examine the photo image pretty carefully to determine if this is correct.  At a glance the photo doesn't offer much to support this.

Thanks to everyone who responded, I really appreciate it!

Looks like fiction to me.  Even enlarged the real aircraft looks heavily mottled all over the fuselage.  Is it SM, FM or even EM.

It looks as if the doors over the tail wheel have been removed.
