I'd suggest 1940 as a more likely time for this lovely model to be shown off at the Tempelhoff air show. With the removal of Hitler however, one wonders if WW2 would've had Europe vs the USSR instead, after all, I believe he wanted to push down through the Caucasus to get to the Middle East Oil, and through Afghanistan to get to the British Raj...

I think 1940 would be too early for the removal of camo and the return to NMF and bright squadron markings.

It would depend when Hitler was actually deposed and when the German political situation was 'restored'.

Only then would the British Government have deemed Europe to have become peaceful enough to warrant a return to brighter colour schemes.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
