There are more than a few paint schemes on the site sans white.

Citabria only had a few factory paint schemes. Sorta like Henry Ford offering any color Model-T you wanted - as long as it was black. Or, have you ever seen a (civilian) J-3 in any other color than yellow? I have, and it just ain't right!

As Citabrias were recovered, their owners exercised their creative license. As model builders, we have the same discretion. Actually, I saw one in navy blue and yellow, with sunburst wings, that impresses me.

Short note--

Nitrate dope is made from the same base stocks as guncotton. It is doctored up as needed so it's a coating instead of a propellant, and is still very flammable.
