My wallet is still crying... but I got all together now. The sets from DEF look really nice, seem to be well reseached and made specific for the Oktopus (but you can still build a generic version). Not really shure if the fenders are accurate enough, as the mountings for them seems to be differnt on the last batch. We´ll see... ;)

Very interesting. If this was another forum there would me twenty flame posts from "experts" on octopus camo, lol :)

Actually there isn´t much to argue about the paintjob. There is one single proven example which ended up at a bridge over the Autobahn near Kassel. As it stood there for several years, it was photographed quite often... Here is what seems to be one of the last pic of it (pic is said to be Technicolor, which means as accurate as it could get):
