    About the PZL with serial number, I have seen a photograph, not very good I’m afraid, but good enough to say that the serial number is painted in white.
    The photograph shows the “Δ126” landed and abandoned in Crete after the fall of Greece, without its motor and cowling.

  3. GEORGIADIS DIMITRIOS Says:

    Thanx for the information, Fotis. May i take a look on this photo?

  4. Fotis Zografos Says:

    Sorry for the delay Dimitri! I send you the photograph via e-mail.
    As you can see, “Δ126” is painted most likely in dark green-sand-sky blue, and not in the four colour scheme you suggest. I have seen this scheme in several profiles, which are probably hypothetical. I am looking forward to seeing the new you are going to make based on this photograph.
    By the way, have a look on the AVRO 504N in the same photograph. They were still flying in 1941! Remember that the picture was taken in Crete, May 1941!

  5. GEORGIADIS DIMITRIOS Says:

    the 4-colored draw is rather a hypothetical one and it is reffered to the period before october 1940
