I'm about to try the same technique using thin acetate paper
[so I can see what I'm doing 80)]. You could also use light blue overall,
or patches of the lozenge colours as your base.

You're right about Windsock,, but I've been dubious about turquoise.
When I was down at the Australian War Memorial some time ago, I took some
colour photos of their Pfalz DXII: why don't I have a look at them tonight,
see what colour the blue is under the wings, and get back to the list?
