Thanks for that: really only idle curiosity on my part, nothing
constructive either.
We're [i.e. my wife and I ] are off to Ostpreu3en for a month in
May, and then back [~home] to Hamburg for about another month. The results
of my earlier productive activities are now old enough to take care of them-

Yes,the colour I had in mind was RLM 65, which I think is Humbrol
63 [?], but i'd be prepared to accept Humbrol 23, which is a shade lighter.
As I said, I'll check my photos of the Pfalz, and see what it's like.

If I come up with anything else interesting, I'll let you have it
[in a manner of speaking].

BTW, any recommendations for the colour of the landing-gear struts
on Fokker EIII? [No, I haven't finished it yet 80(]
