Sirs, I have a question regarding the finish of the "Texan".

I'm referring to the aluminum-yellow livery: does anyone know if the aluminum was painted or left natural metal?

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Euge

Which "aluminum-yellow" livery are we talking about? There were dozens of air forces over decades. Need more specifics..

Thanks for responding.

I was referring to all those Texan and/or SNJ that had an "apparently" aluminum fuselage and yellow wings, or partially yellow painted wings.

That's because in Italy were used both aircraft from USA, Canada, and returned from leasing to South Africa.

The point was to find out the correct finish for the aluminum parts.

Meanwhile I solved the problem: they were all aluminum doped, at least in Italy.

Thanks again.

Regards Euge

edit: typo
