Hi mate,  :-salut

Very beautiful artwork ! Bravo.  :-clap  :-clap  :-clap  :-ok

The blue of the French cocardes is a little too violet.
Here are the official colours for the Armée de l'air, as made by the manufacturer "Pyrolac".

Hi Jicehem,

What an excelente reference chip, very well preserved indeed!

I remember reading a very interesting article on one of the Avions magazines, related to camouflge in the Armee de l'Air, years ago and they mentioned that mixing colours almost in a free-will basis when painting the aircrafts was, if not the order of the day, a very widely accepted and often sugested policy. Can you confirm something on that?

Best regards,

Javier

Hi Javier,  :-salut , hi all,  :-salut

Yes that has been said many times...
When painters had not the original color they had to match it by mixing basic colors. I think that was only for repaired planes because, in general, the planes were painted by the manufacturer, or during the pre-war period (i. e. 1938 to 1939) for the planes which were unpainted and already in units.
But, every thing could have been possible because the French industry seems to have been totally desorganized at the beginning of the war... But I know of no rememberence telling they received unpainted new planes...

Cheers,
