I'm in a bit of a Super Frelon mood at the moment, so this is on the PC for the festive season :D

Good Mornings Kremlin

[-o< [-o< Would you be so kind as to do a Super Frelon in each of the colour schemes used by the SAAF? I believe there were 3 schemes used.

Hey Hornet

You know that the French translation for the Frelon is Hornet .. :D

The plan is to do as many different schemes/variations as I can find reference photos for ...

Three schemes ... :?:

I'm aware of the:
Olive Drab delivery scheme, with white stencilling .. then with yellow stencilling.

Dark Earth / Dark Green cammo scheme, with and without castles ...

Am I missing a paint-scheme here :?:

I can't seem to find a pic on the web, but I know I have it in a book back home. Also I remember that there were pictures of it in the SAAF 75 magazine/book/flying program.

Not perhaps the Olive Drab scheme .. under certain lighting .. it does almost look blueish .. see the pic in the Frelon thread :?:
