Dear Steffen,

In your Molscript input file, try putting all strands belong to a single
beta-sheet together as a block under one colour setting before proceeding
to the next beta-sheet ...

!colour first beta-sheet red

     set planecolour  hsb 0.0 1.0 1.0 ;
     set plane2colour hsb 0.0 0.9 0.6 ;
     set linecolour   hsb 0.0 1.0 0.3 ;
 	
	 strand from M2176 to M2182;
	 strand from M2218 to M2225;
         strand from M2247 to M2253;
 	 .
	 .

!colour 2nd beta-sheet green

     set planecolour  hsb 0.4 1.0 1.0 ;
     set plane2colour hsb 0.4 1.0 0.6 ;
     set linecolour   hsb 0.4 1.0 0.3 ;

	  strand from M2196 to M2198;
	  strand from M2189 to M2193;
	  strand from M2229 to M2234;
	  strand from M2258 to M2265;

!colour 3rd b-sheet

Have fun!
