KG 76 stripe colour on the wing?

Hello,

A friend of mine wants to build a model of a Do 17Z from KG 76 during an attack on London in Sept. 1940.
On the decal sheet the stripe on the starboard wing is light pink!!
I always thought it was white!
Am I wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Christian

Hi Christian,

Find yourself a copy of 'Model Aircraft Monthly' October 2004 By SAM publications which has an article by Paul Lucas on this topic.
