 I think the N28 is a replica on Quinten Roosevelts plane.  He was the youngest son of Teddy, one of the first pilots killed in the newly created 95th pursuit sqdn.

 

 These are great!

That's the skin I always use for the N28 in RoF; but the cowl stripes are blue instead of black, as shown here.  I wonder what the story is on that.  I think a lot of times they can't really tell from old black-and-white pictures what the colors were in real life.

 I think you are right Luft. Looking closely, I think the cowl stripes in the pic are blue but definitely darker than the blue I see in most prints of the plane.  Also noticed that the green used on the J5 DVa tail is darker than what was used at the time. 

 

  Minor details however, they are still great reproductions!

Yeah, wrong color is wrong color, but in the case of different shades of the same color, I think one of the problems was the colors were specific mixtures.  I remember either someone saying or reading it somewhere that MvR's scarlet was a very specific color mixture that he had specially ordered when he could find someone to do so.  So replicating the color today is difficult if not impossible without the color mixtures they used.

I kind of wondered if it actually was an extremely dark blue, almost a dark purple when I was looking at it; but on my screen it looks downright black, and everybody who looks at it is going to be affected by their monitor's different color renderings.  I'm sure Gen would remember if it looked blue or black to him when he actually saw it in the museum  Even the brown of the camo looks very dark to me, more dark than is used in our game.

 Agreed. Danudet makes a good point too.

 

 As for the brown, on my monitor it looks almost like copper!  :D
