Default Nieuport 17-C1 paint scheme help

I am getting ready to paint my 1/3 scale BUSA N-17. I have ben looking for a good scheme, other than the typical silver finishes. I realize that most were silver, due to the newly gained knowledge of UV ray protection, but there HAS to be something unique out there for me. Any help aprpeciated. Thx

Jeff

Jeff,
Have a look here as well.

Then there are always good printed references like Windsock Data Files, Squadron Publication, etc.

Good luck!

Jeff,
Be sure and let us know what you end up with a paint scheme; pictures are always welcome.

Jeff,

Did you finish up the bird yet; how about a picture or two of the final paint scheme.
