Inlcuded in the zip are three skins that include one fully marked skin, one no-number skin, and one no-marked skin.
Thanks to Jesters Ink. for his awesome template.

You're basing your skin on the profile provided in Classic Colours, Jagdfaffe Vol.3 Sec.3, page 229, isn't it?
I have a different opinion interpreting the distand and blurry photo of the plane given in the same page.
I belive that the number actually had red outline. Look how crisper at the edges the black hakencross appears comparing to the more blurry No2.
I think this is happening because of the red outlining, appearing in a just lighter shade of gray in b/w photo, blurres out more the number.
In page 233 of the same book there is a profile of black 10 also suggesting a plain black color for the number.
A closer look on the photos of the real a/c provided in the same page! (especially the close up one), clearly reveals the red outlining and I'm amased how the authors didn't notice such a detail...
Your desert skins are great! Thanks!
I wanted to make a LW desert skinpack myself but I did't find the time... I did my homework though!
PS You have to ommit the C-3 triangle on the starboard side above hakencross as it's not present in any vintage pics.
