From Sweden I try to find a historically guide to the shifting trends in military planes paintings. Here in Sweden we have changed at least 7-8 times since the "silver/metallic" in the early fifties. After that we have paint the planes in: military green,a different kind of metallic on the SAAB 35 "the dragon"-Draken. Then it was a typical Swedish sort of camopainting,with straight edges-simmular as we have on our uniforms. But after the "camoyears" we seems to follow the big nations (USA),and have a grey tone with subdued markings.
I was building a lot of modelplanes in the early 70:s,and always think the "century series+Corsair/Crusaders and F4 Phantom were so good looking. So my problem is to find a site or another guide to USAFS painting history-in general.
This is my first entry in a non-Swedish forum,so maybe you must have that in mind:spelling and that sort of things. But I think my English maybe is better than your Swedish....
All the best to all of you and have a nice day, Here in Stockholm it is minus 7 Farenheith....
Is there anybody out there?
Squadron Signal has published many books on various aircraft from WWI up to and including the present day. I bought my large collection at a local hobby store, though they can also be found online at http://squadronsignalpublications.com/
