  20. Well, at the end, must explain, why not follow the LUKGRAPH painting and decalling instructions , and chose yellow top wing scheme. First, its more colorful , and to me, represents 1930's Naval aviation "standard". So, i do little research and found , that 7738 , from CV-2, USS Lexington, 1931/32, have few paint scheme incarnations , after some overhauls, and in part of its service life, have yellow topsides, clearly shown at this photo, where wing topside is darker than silver undersides. 7738 photos found at Papermodels forum, explaining source of these pics.

Not counting my own, Aeropoxy range kits... (they are out of contention) :-( Starting by the book, nice illustrated 16 pages A4 instruction. Cleaning and assembling,
