I read an article on this site about Buscaglia's “281-5”. It is a great article, but could it be a guide for painting other aircraft in that unit (281-2 for example)? >Did other aircraft also have overpainted previous unit codes?

Good question. In Stefano's article Fig. 13, there's a line up of 281a Sq. aircraft, all are similarly painted.

The best person to ask however is Stefano himself. I'd drop him a PM or post this question in the following thread:
