Lance adds:
All struts and metal fittings medium gray, though cowl is natural aluminum and lightly machined, and wheel covers are aluminum. Roundels are 1-3-5 and this machine has a fuselage roundel. Fuel filler cap is copper, turnbuckles solid brass. Exhaust channel under fuselage is heat-discolored to a bronze shade. Wing walks on both side of fuselage are natural brass, and wrap over the leading edge and terminate about a third of the way back on the underside. Machine uses an Éclair propeller with brassed tips. Is this an authentic scheme?

Mike adds: Like the Soesterburg museum in NL, this is another museum that lets you get pretty close to the airplanes without much trouble.
