Hi there Mike, Welcome here, especially if you like Spads!
Did you mean me? I think I did take a photo of that Belgian Spad 13.
I once built a Spad 7 with that shooting star, and in a green scheme,
but only because I followed a profile in the Aircam book, and 
at the time I knew no better. And to be honest I know no better now,
I shall have a look at home, but I suspect there is no clear answer
to this question. You could always paint it like the museum plane, and
say that it's a model of the plane as it was in the museum in 1990!

Hello, this is Mike Wuyek. new member, but long time reader. I noticed
your name is given as credit to the Belgian Spad XIII at the
(Brussells?) museum. I wish to build a Spad XIII in Belgian colours, but
was told that the colours the museum used were suspect, that the Belgian
Spads were either light gray or light gray below and dark green above. A
search on the web revealed no photos, as such. THe one photo in
Datafiles Spad XIII show a frontal 3/4 view, not much use. I have some
decals of the red and yellow shooting star, and was going to use that,
but I need a scheme. Can you or anyone else help me?
  Thanks so much

Ahhh...imagining that irresistible "new car" smell?
