Remember the Nieuport at Linkoping? I think it was not painted )or was it?)
and it yes as yellow as yellow can be.
Also Guynemer's Spad is quite yellow.
I think it's just a variation of CDL, that's all. But of course I may be
wrong. I'll have a look at Phillipe Osce's book again ...
I'm going to veer in that direction

at least, Portuguese, Brazilian, Peruvian, Romanian.
But there is no conclusive proof, as far as I know.
We should wait for Tomasz book on this subject.
