[WWI] Why do you always find out about colours after the model

The original plane or a copy is displayed in France (scale 1/1) at about
20km from me in an amusement park. I saw it but have no pictures at the
moment. If I remember well, the top fuselage is completely yellow.
I will check.

No wonder no one

>Oh boy a study in tones! Dave the colorline your seeing in the top
shot is probably just the diffece reflectivity of the metal vs fabric
colored areas. Not the fins and stabs are silver and there is a shade
difference from them and the adjacent fabric and yet still different
from the nose sections. Also note that your second picture is later in
the test program the round stars have been replaced with stars and bars.
I think yellow top and wraparound with silver bottoms and flight
controls is probably safest. You also may have chrome yellow fabric and
a deeper yellow nose.
