Another mid-period Hurricane. Between Munich (August, 1938) and the invasion of Poland (September, 1939), the, still, “peacetime” RAF expanded dramatically and was flooded with new technology. While everyone more or less understood the written instructions to paint the underside of the port wing black, for recognition when airborne, what to do with the rest of the plane was not always grasped. Black and white across the undersurface of the wing, meeting at the center line, was a durable interpretation, frequently seen, with the rest left as built, in Aluminum finish. Here’s what that would look like with no national or service markings.
Note, the “B” scheme camouflage is the mirror image of the “A”, same blobs of color, but on the other side. So that a row of airplanes would not stand-out by looking identical.
