Okay!

Corsair in standard mid war temperate scheme


Same model, whiffed winter scheme:

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

S2C Goshawk, real scheme-ish.  It was whiffed up as replacement for the one-way trip Hurricanes based on CAM ships.  Probably should have had sky undersides, but I thought white would make for a nice change and was used on larger aircaft like the one Carlos showed:

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Magic Fred.  :thumbsup:

That 'reversed scheme' Hurricane looks totally standard at first sight, and it only dawns on that something's not quite right after a while.  ;)
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Are colours of bombers, upper surfaces earth and green, the same as early WWII fighters'?

Yes, but the patterns are different of course.
