Ju 88 A-4 4D+FP 6./KG 30 final view

Here's final of my reconstruction. Thanks to forum guests and Nick who ordered that profile.

Of course if there would be any new informations about that Junkers, I'll come back to this.

Ju 88 A-4 6./KG 30 - another reconstruction

After discussion at forums - LEMB, 12'o clock. I've prepared third version of hypothetical view of Ju 88 A-4 of 6./KG 30. Aircraft was built at 1942 year - so the most probably it had standard RLM 70 / RLM 71 camouflage. 
I've decided to pattern this one with wellmunster RLM 76 waves and RLM 22 waves under engine's cowlings. Bottom of aircraft is black.

Balkenkreuz and code nb are in my reconstruction repainted by any color. 
I've left code nb black and spinners at RLM 70 - we have no info about it.

Ju 88 A-4 VI./KG 30

This time I'm starting with new Ju 88 A-4 of KG 30. 
What is the most interesting, that we don't have any photographs. Only few parts of aircraft: 

Ju88A-4 Werke Nr. 140099 which crashed in the UK on 13/14 March 1944. The aircraft was from 6/KG30 and was coded 4D+FP. 
"The camouflage of the upper surfaces was a light blue-grey mottled dark green. The undersurfaces were spray painted black, whilst the engine cowlings were yellow with wavy lines of black."
And that's all. Maybe someone could help with it.
This profiles will be printed and exposed near to relicts of described Ju 88 A-4, so I would like to reconstruct this the most perfect I can. 

My idea of painting:
  1. Bottom parts painted black RLM 22
  2. Upper surfaces RLM 76 - a litlle bit darker variant
  3. Mottled green - RLM 70
  4. Cross - RLM 66
Any comments?
