No It certainly isn't the " Consensus" Now! Iwas merely stirring the Pot so 
to Speak. someone,Ken?, asked if this picture looked doctored etc. I don't 
know about that, but I saw this in 2 versions on the Drome. Both different 
in Brightness,Tone etc. I forget if this was the thread, but Several 
"Experts"now Claim that Voss Tripe was not Turquoise Blue/ Green Streaks on 
the uppers. Shane will like this, Dan San says, leaving no room for doubt, 
that 103/17 was delivered in Standard Fokker Factory Finish of Blue Unders 
and CDL/Olive Green Streaked uppers. :-)
