Has anyone done a Ju-87C in a low contrast two-tone grey splinter rather than the standard Luft splinter?
By low contrast I mean the two shades would be close in value, rather than a light/mid grey and a dark grey.

Do you have an example of the colours you mean Jon?

There is something like this scheme that Richard did a few years back - I think it would look good on a Sea Stuka, though if I read your post correctly, you want something different:

Well something value wise along the lines of the greens used in regular splinter cammo on seaplanes:
72/73 over 65 (dark green and dark grey-green), little contrast between the greens.
But in two greys similar to fighters 41-44 With 74/75 over 76.

Perhaps along the lines of 74V.1 and 66 over 77.

Out of interest, the original contenders for what became the Stuka:



I actually find the He118 (seen below again) the most attractive.




Wow Greg, that picture of the prototype He118V1 is impressive, and emphasises the clean line of its retractable landing gear well! I'm assuming by the drawings of the designs submitted to the RLM 'Stuka' requirements, that the He118 was the only design submission with retractable landing gear?

Some enterprising soul could probably convert the He 118 out of He 70, perhaps?

Have to move back seat position forward, but it would be doable.  I think you'd also need to re-engine the He-70.  There are some temptations there, particularly if you could fit a suitable powerful engine.

Or a Merlin, they supposedly flew on that testbed, too.  I was rather thinking of the engine, propeller, and cowling of a MC.202 and fitted a nose radiator as was trialed (no advantage over the standard position, so never put into production).
