    Is there a question on whether they were all aluminum? The one I am 
doing was interned by the Dutch. The top of the fuselage seems to be factory 
painted...probably a dark green. The top of the upper wing can't be made 
out, The under wing is invisible. The fuselage sides have a squiggly 
mottling similar to Luftwaffe stuff. The bottom right wing has a weird kind 
of silver and green camo effect. SO, I guess I will go with silver/aluminum 
and green.
    Anyway, I just finished cutting the clear plastic off the sprue....boy 
is that stuff ever brittle!
