Junkers 88A1 KG51 paint schemes

I've been building up some painting references for the Ju88A1's and am trying to work out the best way to go about the splinter camouflage pattern on the upper fuselage and wings. I was lucky enough to find some well detailed profiles from a 1/32nd scale decal sheet which should give me a good starting point.

I painted up some Dornier 17's a while back and used Tamiya tape to mask out the pattern over the mid-green basecoat before painting the dark green splinter. I decided to simplify some of the acute angles on the fuselage pattern but kept the wing design as close to the original as possible. You can see the results in the photo below.

As a method for camouflage pattern painting it worked quite well so I'll try the same sort of approach with the 88's, again with some simplification to keep it manageable.
