About of the Beaufighter MkI serial T4887, he was captured at an airport in Sicily, I have seen multiple ways of interpreting it. But what it was proper camouflage. I lean for extra dark sea gray, for top ,and bottom to sky.
Please someone to confirm my theory or help me find the truth, if someone also have a photograph or profile of said machine, much better.

Very grateful Raul Wright

Here's some photos of the Beaufighter and one when it was immediately captured. It looks to me that the plane is finished in maritime colors.

Hi Vince: Long ago I did not hear you. It is clear that is one color on the upper surfaces, because I've seen painted on models with two-tone (dark slate and extra dark sea grey) but the picture is conclusive. Thank you very much Raul.
