    Using Model Master paints. Need info on camo colors. Should I use med green or dark green under the olive drab?
    Would appreciate any info of overall paint scheme.

    From Battle Colors Vol.1..."As was the case with most of the aircraft assigned to pioneer elements of the Eighth Air Force in Great Briton(sic), the B-17Fs.... received an edging treatment of Medium Green in an effort to help break up the aircraft's profile from the air."
