Seems there's now information suggesting that EP200 retained the original underside "Sky" colour and the earlier style underwing roundels.

 

Thanks for looking. Cheers, Ralph.

cheers Gents. Undersides done. The tinted Dullcote grime was followed by thinned Games Workshop Babab Black wash here and there, and water-soluble FABER-CASTELL pencils. The pencils are similar to using oils as they can be blended into the paintwork, or wiped away if necessary - only with water instead of white spirit. Much quicker for the impatient.

Looking forward to seeing what you do on the top side.
