  1. Here is a clear blue flag : and here a black/blue one !
  2. I agree, there's a lot of variations : from light blue to almost dark blue. I checked in Wingmasters all french kits, but no model builder gives a precise reference or recipe ! they mix X14 and white or a drop of red... Bearcat or T8 will be great choices for a collection of french post-war aircraft. T-28 Fennec too ! but the most beautiful french post-war aircraft is... F4U7, with Operation Musketeer yellow and black stripes. But, unfortunately, there are no kit of this special version of the Corsair...

  10. On p-61A1 s/n 42-5516, the nose should be short with fiberglass, but it looks longer. https://www.pacificwrecks.com/aircraft/p-61/42-5516/p61-parked.html between P61-A5 and A10, the nose seems to be short, but on A10 there are no visible structure lines, the nose is smoothed. On this famous B2, the nose is long and smoothed : https://www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/usa/aircrafts-2-3/p-61/p-61-nightfighter-nose-art-coopers-snooper/ compare with this one (P-61 A10) : https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b6/426th_Night_Fighter_Squadro
