the blue angles flew these for a short while and the reseve had some with orange bands and target drone planes other than that the plane just was not arround long enough to get a very colourful history
Green side is definitely not up

Seeing as it wasn't in service in ww2, dark sea blue is all you gonna get. It did get sold to others (France for example used it in Indochina in the '50s) but they all retained the blue. Just used their own colours like this French version:

If this isn't going to be scale, who cares? Paint it the corsair-style tri-colour scheme. Or whatever you like.

Paint it red and say it was in the Reno Races (it was the fastest piston engined plane at one point in its history).

This is one (called the Conquest I) that flew at Reno in 1972. Does yours have to be miltary?
