The reason for the colour scheme, apart from looking quite nice is that it can be seen easily from the ground whilst in flight.

Also, I wanted this type of scheme as it is different.
Nice job Fen - a bit different than most of the other BC Blenheims around. You comments about the camo are spot on. My flying pal and I both had the same problem with our BC Hurricane and Blenheim. That was a contributory factor in the Hurricane now sitting on the bench having had major surgery after a very unfortunate arrival. Not sure what colour scheme she will be refurbished with, she's in the camouflage of the Ecuador Air Force at the moment.

Good luck with the Bolly
