Imam Ro 37 camo schema in CMPR

Post by hokusai » Sun Nov 13, 2022 11:15 am

There appears to be a contradiction in CMPR page 76

On top of the page we read
Imam Ro 37 schema raffigurato nel chip C1...(foto 53)

But the caption at photo 53 says it is C10B

Which is right?

Is the 3-color schema really confirmed on this plane? Many color plates depict a 2-color camo.

The plane in foto 53 on p.76 seems to be finished in the C5 two tone camo scheme, however the publishers might have had a larger clearer (wider/complete) photo or several other photos of 39-4. Judging only from the photo on p.76 it does seem to be the two tone C5 as below:

I agree there's an inconsistency in the C1 and C10B description, likely just a typo or they meant C1/C10B.
