Hi Tony,

Yes, I have. I am just wondering how much is restored and how much is original. I have the Petipas book on the RCN Seafire and the Martin book on RCN colours and markings, and neither get into these details.

Cheers

Brad

Just judging by my black and white pics versus the Tecumseh pics in colour, it looks like they got most of it correct. Looks like underside grey for the wells and doors to me(for the EDSG over Grey later scheme)

Good luck-still searching

Hi Tony,

That's what I am thinking too. I am doing a kitbash of the Airfix Mk XII, the Mk XVII Seafire kits, and some aftermarket stuff.

Cheers

I've had a look thru my stuff as well and I would have to go underside colour (MSG) for the EDSG over MSG later paint jobs and interior green for the temperate sea scheme as delivered.

Thanks Alvin, and are we good with Gray-Green for cockpit and not black?

Brad:

I'd have to say Green based on a couple of photos in Leo Pettipas' book. Page 63 shows the entry door down and it is certainly a lighter colour than the upper camo. I just happened to have that photo copied as an icon on my desktop. I am sure there are other photos showing similar "stuff" in the book.
