COLOR REFERENCES: This source says that the USMC DH-4's served in the same coloration employed by the Army, and that battleship gray was used on DH-4B machines post-war - http://www.scribd.co...-American-D-H-4" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.scribd.co...c/4662199/Aircr … ican-D-H-4

The top of the vertical stabilizer and the elevators both appear to be white in your first photograph, and the font on the rudder is very tall & thin. just thought I'd throw that out there.

I'm about ready to let loose of this skin; I'm waiting for delivery of a reference book to see if I can resolve the buff-or-gray issue.
I'll be interested in what you find out about the buff vs gray issue - while the standard DH-4s would have been buff, the US Navy was using a matte gray paint scheme on its Hanriot HD-1s and HD-2s during 1918 so I suppose they might have extended that use to some other planes flown by the Marines.

This illustration does has a demonstrable inaccuracy, that being the red eagle on the fuselage insignia. The photograph posted above shows that the eagle color is not a match for the red roundel color; I think my brown-gold version is thus more authentic.
So, I'm going with the buff paint, but I will include a gray version in the zip as well if I can do that.
Now that I've decided what to do it shouldn't take too long to make a few skins.
