Battleship camo
Is yours operating from carriers? (or do we need to wait until 12:00 before we should start pulling the truth out from you?)

Still practicing. I still have one more old style to come.

ETA: Not carrier based AFAIK, what you seeing is a fixed tail wheel and not a tail hook.

The camo is just to cause an illusion.

Morning all.

An obvious question - was it armed?

Hi Skwinty, While appreciateing the intention and reason, the distortion of the image doesn't lend itself to a "silhouette" challenge!

The aircraft saw service as a trainer and as a fighter. It is French.

It was still used as a trainer after the war by a few countries.

The silhouette is accurate, only the fill is different.

On second thought yours doesn't look like a radial...
