    anyone have a pic or idea on the colours that this particular one was painted? Have one someone gave me in a trade and thought this might be an interesting scheme to do.

    Wasn't aware he used one, but you can bet it had some BIG roundels on it!

    I wasn't sure if he used one either, although other senior officers certainly did, in the ETO.

    I think he did use one, or least I've heard it through the grape vine on certain history shows and stuff. I'll check my pictures if I have one :D
    ************For some odd, pre-breakfast haze reason, I thought you wanted Churchill's storch :S oh well :D I'll try to look through my pics today for Monty's****
    Found it, wait a sec as photobucket uploads them from my comp :D

    Bam like magic ! I think I got all the photos from the site listed on the pics, way long ago :D

    Colors are pretty self explanitory, I think they over paints in british camo with the invasion stripes, if you search the storch on wings palette you can find it np, hope that helped :)

    I think the first couple are actually AVM Harry Broadhurst's personal transport, which he used to take Churchill to visit some units after D-Day.

    heard broadhurst had one, question would this be the grey geen scheme or earth, green? Thinking the earth green with yellow undersides would look great but don't think any where done that way?

    Far as I know, many captured examples retained the Luftwaffe colours, but had RAF roundels added, and the AEAF stripes. I think I might have seen one in Dark Green/Ocean Grey/Medium Sea Grey, but I'd need to find the photo to be sure.
