Very satisfying!

It's good to see the plane in action.

(Don't forget to uncheck the markings box when selecting the plane. The insignia already have been applied.)

Here is T6+AN, a plane shown in several frames from an Italian newsreel taken in September 1941. The red "A" and "N" indicate that it belonged to 5./St.G 2. Together with T6+DP, it would seem to be the only plane to have been decorated in such a remarkable fashion.

In this frame, one sees a bit more of the snake.


Since the camouflage scheme is not discernible, I've used the splinter pattern of T6+DP.

T6+AN is available here.

Now that T6+DP and T6+AN have been posted, here is the template for the most popular non-historic version of the "Snake" Stuka, as profiled in Weal, and Leonard and Jouineau. Held and Obermaier had speculated that the aircraft identification letter was "C" but, with the photographs published by Urbanke, now is known to be "D."

This more imaginative presentation (with the snake in red) is available here.

A frame from a newsreel showing T6+AN in flight (of which jamesdietz has shared a particularly good example) seems to have been the source for Watanabe's early illustration of the plane, which he surmised to be T6+MP. Fittingly, I have used his rendering of the snake's head as a basis for my own skin.

And here is a grainy screenshot imitating that frame.




And that's it for snakes on a plane.

You're right!

Comparing the photo to the screenshot, the modelers really did configure the pilot (and presumably the rear machine gunner) too small relative to the size of the cockpit.

and if head position is the same inside cockpit, pilot's visibility must be quite different. If you think about all the arguments of what IL2 FW-190 pilots should see...

It really looks like the pilot is sitting lower in COD (by ~4"), rather than an issue of scale.

If you compare the top of the head, and the top of the shoulder in both images, you can see they are both lower in COD by about the same amount. Since people vary in size (unlike virtual pilots), the preportions won't be exact.
