Model WC/WSM/WT ‘Chinese, Siamese and Turkish Service’ - complete colour schemes

 The 1/72 Model 139WC/WSM/WT contains four marking options, two Chinese machines, one as flown in Siam and one from Turkey. And if the upper surface colours of the latter does seem a bit fishy to you, do you not worry please, the orange livery is mentioned in several references including those directly from Turkey. So we have just decided to stick with them. The same level of controversy might raise the Chinese machines, which, originally delivered wearing the famous US scheme of a yellow wing and blue fuselage, were in fact painted over in China using dark green. Some photos, however, do show that the uppers had some sort of mottles on them, which might suggest that the Chinese green just peeled off revealing the yellow underneath.
