'Hello...Is the upper wing's camouflage, working left to right across the planform, *always* going to be mauve/green/mauve? *Or, will some planes have m/g/m while others will have g/m/g?
It appears that from the factory every 50 or so Alb. D. type a/c in a production batch were similar in their camouflage patterns. While the next 50 or so would be reversed or if you will 'mirrored' There were variations of course. Dan-San Abbott has been able to tell us more. Specifically it depends on which airframe at which time in its existance your discussing. You may have to go back and check some older threads.

That's what was meant by "mirrored". Thanks for the clarification!

Going through that backlog of posts now, too. Great stuff in there.
