    I discovered this PBY camouflage paint scheme drawing. It was applied to a VP-11 aircraft #11-P-12 stationed at NAS Kaneohe Bay Hawaii prewar. I think the aircraft is a PBY-3 model. This aircraft was destroyed 7 December 1941 at Kaneohe. Apparently only a couple of aircraft at Kaneohe had this color scheme applied. Most aircraft at Kaneohe had the usual white belly, light blue/grey top. I'm looking for any photographs of a PBY in this color scheme and any more info about this color scheme. I think it would look very inyteresting to see a PBY painted in this color.
