    Questions: Does anyone know what wartime paint schemes the French used on D.510s? Did they retain the all-silver color scheme during the war? Was this simply natural metal, or was it aluminum paint? I do know that many WW I Nieuports and other planes used a silver paint that had gray added. Would the French have done the same on pre-WW II and WW II planes in general to maintain a uniform color scheme vice the variations of natural metal?
    NOTE: I'm 56 years old and this is my first post on a forum or thread or any similar medium other that FB. Thanks, Bob.
